Tamron SP 17mm f3.5 Adaptall 2. (4 imgs)
Jul 10, 2009

Just testing thsi Tamron 17mm f3.5 lens. I put one of those rubber pull out lens hoods on by taping it to the lens with black electrical tape. The screw threads for this hood is 67mm but the lens has no threads to screw it into. I also used a cheap 67mm polarizer. I pulled out the 3 position rubber lens hood to the second position. I had a bit of vignetting when I tried it wide open but putting the lens hood in the first position solved that problem. EXIF data is embedded in the images.

Not a bad lens IMO.
