I got given a Tamron Adaptall II BBAR MC Close-Focus 135mm f2.5 lens so I tried it with the Pentax 'K' mount on my Re-Furbished Asahi Pentax ME ( new mirror Bumper and back door seals, Lens Aperture activating lever straitened , lubrication in Base-Plate of Levers and Cogs) It was very sharp at all apertures. I first tried a short length of 1992 ORWO NP22 processed in FX-15 1+1 then JESSOPS PAN 100 processed in FX-4 1+1
