    I have been on a search for a good 135 so far I have 2 Minoltas, a Sakar, a Hanimex, a Soligor, and the best up to now a Mamiya Sekor. I think I really perfer this Tamron to all of these, see what you think

    A little soft at 2.8 but a razor at f4.0 (I think)

    Check out the Bokeh

    The only thing I don't like about this lens is that its closest focus is about 5 feet.

    A trip to the zoo

    Took my new toy (Tamron Adaptall 135mm, f2.8) to the zoo yesterday. I love this lens.
    Red_Panda_1.
    Red Panda, almost too cute to be real. Taken at about f4.0-5.6

    Flamingo_1.
    I like the odd composition of this one. probably taken at f4.

    Giraffe_2.
    This one going to get a trip to Photoshop if I can get my son-in-law to do it.

    Red_Panda_2.
    And this is just cause you can't get enough photos of red pandas.

    I recently acquired a Vivitar (Tokina) 135 2.8 on the cheap. Better than the 135 3.5 Oly I used to have. Both OOC raw except 1st one cropped.
