    Default Tamron 300mm f2.8 Adapt-al 2, with LOTS of extras

    This is a 60B, in green. Complete with lens hood, front and rear caps, tripod mount,
    2 internal filter holders, both 2x and 1.4 tele-converters- (both Tamron brand). There is an adaptal mount
    for OM bodies, one Adaptal to Canon FD mount, one cheap ebay OM to 4/3 adapter,
    one Olympus brand OM to 4/3 (very, very well built, and solid on this lens) one Fotodiox
    OM to 4/3 adapter, and one AF confirm Adaptal to 4/3 mount, which surprisingly enough, works really well






    There are no 43mm filters, no front filter and no palm holding piece. You can see some dust if you hold it up to the light,
    I never noticed any image degradation from it. I see no fungus inside. The carry case is a bit rough around the lip on the lid.
    If you got great arms and need long reach this is your baby. I've had great success with this using the
    Tamron 1.4x stacked on the Olympus 1.4x converters- that adds up to 1146mm of reach on 4/3. You need a rock solid tripod

    Well, this looks like a pretty interesting piece of kit. If you were in Europe, I think I'd buy it from you.

    Any more sample pictures?

    I had this lens before selling it to Flinchbaugh and I loved it and got some great shots....

    If I had the money, I would consider buying it back from him....this is a good deal and a bunch of reach for the $$'s

    I took this big old girl to the Mountain Madness Air Show here this weekend. All of these shots where shot with this lens
    on a E5, most tripod mounted except for a few of the Thunderbirds where hand help because
    I couldn't keep up on the gimbal mount
    Here's a link to the gallery- have a look see what you can do with this monster

    Have you only used this with the e-5? Any experience with this on an OMD? I'm assuming I'd have to use my mmf-3 adapter with af adaptal to 4/3....but then I'd be able to use the ec14 or ec20...technically correct? I was saving for the big tuna, but this could be an interesting alternate.

    or would this work?

    Hi Clint,
    I've only used this lens on the E5, and E510.
    The adapter you show above should make it work fine on the Micro 4/3 mount.,

    I like the one piece adapters like you linked- less moving parts/joints is better IMO
