Hardly getting over it.
Sirrah! Learne ye the Antient Arte of ye stoppinge-downe of ye lens, forsooth!Well the tamron I ordered is OK, but the aperture pin is snapped so the camera can't change the aperture It also means that whatever you set the aperture to manually is what you get through the viewfinder, so anything over f11 is impossible to frame cos it's too dark.
In other words, compose with the aperture wide open, then stop it down to the required aperture to take the pic.
It's always worked fine for me when using old pre-auto lenses and/or cameras.
