    Hi all, i was at a car boot sale today and bought a tamron 135 mm bbar multi c f 2.8 with front and rear caps plus case and its in a near mint condition for £10. Im going to try it with my epl1. Does ant one know if this lens is any good?

    For £10 who cares? :) 

    Seriously, Tamrons are no slouches. I would doubt this is a poor lens, chances are it's at least quite good.

    According to adaptall-2.org yours probably is CT-135 at Google Translate

    No personal experience with this particular lens. Just be aware that it's different from the more common 135mm f/2.5.

    I'm envious. That should be a great prime. Let us know how it works out and post some pics from it.
