SMC Pentax 24mm 2.8 shipped today and finally there seems to be some movement for the Tamrom adaptall-2 24mm 2.5 01BB version.


Let me know how it performs. I'm in need for a good 24mm.


Somehow I think this will end with somebody pointing to a Minolta, but I am limited to K-mount or M42. I was pleasantly surprised by the Takumar 24mm F3.5 despite it being hazy, there is also an SMC K version of that lens. The 2.8 K is a more modern design I guess, it was carried over to the Pentax-A line-up.


I have this lens as well and compared it recently to the Minolta lens on my A7R II. There isn't much difference; i.e. you won't be disappointed.
Within your limitations this is a very good choice.

A Tamron 500 again- this one in much better shape than my first sample.




....original case


The tripod plate is included this time.



Original filter set- 3 color filters and one N/D.



With the hood on. This hood differs from the first. I can thread it onto the lens upside down to fit in the case.
The friction fit cap fits somewhat loosely over the bottom of the hood. It will be fine as long as it's cased.



Different Adapt-All-2's for Nikon. The newest by s/n is much simpler, and stronger than the earlier version that tried to have a dummy aperture lever, A/I-s scoop, and markings for ADR that I could never get to line up.




Another view of the Adapt-All-2 mounts...

Now to find a situation where I can run a test without fogging the new to me lens in the cold...

Tamron's adaptall-2 24mm 1/2.5 01BB version. It looks and feels very well.

Tell us your findings. I have liked this lens but had to return it because it was fungused.

I can compare it with a RMC Tokina 24/2.8, Sigma
Super-Wide II, Panagor 24/2.5 (Komine), Super-Takumar 24/3.5 and still incoming a SMC Pentax 24/2.8. I also have two wide angle zooms 24-48/50 By Tamron and Pentax.

I also have the Tamron 24mm lens and at some point intend to run tests on all my Tamrons. I know from back in the film days I was very happy with this lens.
