Lens Porn!



========================================



September 5, 2016. Aurora, Cubao.

Excited with the arrival last week of my Tamron Adaptall to Nikon Adapter! This is just one of those cheap third party generic imitations, not the authentic Tamron Adaptall adapters. The only difference I see is that this generic adapter I have does not support 'auto diaphragm'.

It means that this will not support auto diaphragm, which allows the lens to stay open when mounted on the camera, even if you preset the aperture to lower values. It will only close when you push the shutter button. In manual stopdown, the blades close respectively to the value that you set the aperture. It becomes dark to see as you go toward f/16 and f/22, but it allows you to see the actual depth of field.

Enough about adapters, more on the lens!

The lens I took out was the Tamron Adaptall 35-135mm f/3.5-4.5 Macro (Model 40A). This lens is useful for full frame cameras as it provides a moderately wide angle of 35mm up to a moderate telephoto reach of 135mm. Plus a useful macro mode for closeups too. On DX/crop sensor/APS-C cameras however, it is equivalent to 53-210mm, but still nice walkaround lens for street, indoor, portrait, and macro/closeups.

To be fair to this lens, I just want you to know that my specific copy has some issues with a cloudy glass element inside, resulting in somewhat dreamy images. It could have been sharper, as other reviewers have pointed out.

September 6, 2016. Rizal Park.

Today is Day 2 of shooting with the Tamron Adaptall 35-135mm f/3.5-4.5 Macro (40A). This is just to remind the reader that the lens had a cloudy lens element inside so my copy does not perform well against strong backlight. (For this purpose, most of my shots were using CPL.) This time, we have the Micro-Nikkor 55mm f/3.5 and Tamron Adaptall SP 60-300mm f/3.8-5.4 Macro (23A).

I insisted on using a preset White Balance, which is why many of the photos have a bluish vintage feel to it.
