Hi zaxh81, thanks for your advice, i am aware of the DI version you recommend, thinking of getting used for the attractive pricing. Does it mean that the one I am exploring does not work on Nikon?

It does work with the Nikon system, provided you get the correct adapter from the Adaptall mount. But do note that it is the older system which is MF and it may not allow you to reach 1:1 macro.

Another thing to note is with more adapters in line, there may be slight degradation of functionability.

Thanks Zac08, is the adapter easy to get and is it expensive? MF is alright as I understand it is common for macro works.

Not very sure of the pricing, but have seen one user selling Tamron lenses sell additional adaptall adapters at approx $85 or so...

MF is ok, but as mentioned previously, you better check on the maximum magnification the lens is capable of. Some older macro lens have a limit of 1:2 only.



Cheers,
