    Has anyone seen/used/have any info (useful preferably!) on these adaptors;
    CAMPLUS

    I am looking for an adaptor to fit my Tamron MF SP lenses to my D200, the existing Tamron AD2 mount ( AI-E ) has packed up & it is very difficult to obtain the correct Tamron one.

    specifically, if anyone has used or has one of the above adaptors;
    Is it for fitting the old MF adaptall (2) lenses to Nik DSLR ?
    &
    There seems to be no aperture connection as far as I can see, so, does it keep the lens in 'stop down' mode for metering/shooting?

    my friend (Google!) has not come up with any relevant information & I've had no reply from emailing the seller, so thought I'd check if anyone here has any experience with them.

    Many thanks for any info

    Cheers, Must have a search through my old OM stuff in the attic, I used to have 5 or six of them (OM) when I had the Oly Kit (OM1, 2, 2sp & 4), but i think I let everything go as a job lot many many moons ago Sad

    I have never used one.
    It is possible an "old technology" Tamron adaptor could interfere with some of the AF contacts on modern AF-s lenses and even on an AF D lens - I do not know. As far as I know the Tamron adaptors were AIS - needed for compatibility on a D200.
    Providing your Nikon lenses have an aperture ring (eliminating over 50% of the current Nikon line up) the D200 has a custom function to enable the aperture to be set using the aperture ring on a lens that has one.

    Did you actually read my original post Leonard?, Wink
    I have been using Tamron SP Manual focus lenses with my D200 for a couple of years now, the adapter has packed up (although I may have actually got it working again & will be testing it today), the adaptor is to fit Tamron Adaptall 2 manual focus lenses to Nikon Dslr which have the function to allow manual & Aperture priority mode metering. Not to fit Nikon Lenses to the camera (as they tend to fit anyway!).

    Tamron made a few different adaptors for Fitting their lenses to Nikon Cameras (e.g. AIS, AI & AI-E)

    Sorry if I'm going a bit off topic here Joe, but there is an Adaptall website that is looking for photos of all the different mounts. Your AI-E is a new one on me, so even if you don't get it working again the website might appreciate a photo to help others?

    Now back to the question ...........

    I'll take a couple of snaps of it later, when I get home from work & send them there. The AI-E adaptor seems almost identical to the AI adaptor but without the 'prongs', & a lot harder to find!!.

    Looking at the link, those adapters look like there for the original tamron lenses and pre adaptal 2. The adaptal 2 mounts have quite a few intricate moving parts.

    Pm me your address and I`ll mail it of to you, you`ll get more use out of it than me Smile
