Calling adaptall wizards... 2 tabs, 1 slot! ???

Hey all,

I just received my 06A 200-500. At 6 pounds it's practically pocket size!

It's an Adaptall 2 so I assume my PKA adaptall 2 mount should work with it, but there is only a single (tab)key slot on the aperture ring of the 200-500.

What do I do to mount this thing? I didn't want to bend anything so I stopped. I even read the original mount instructions from Tamron but they simply say that "some mounts have two coupling keys. Be sure to line them up." Duh!

Tamron docs also suggest that the 01F teleconverter works with this lens but it also has 2 keys.

The Tamron specs clearly show that the aperture goes from 6.9 to 32, AE

What the?

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Scott
