Additional information:

Tamron 28 mm f/ 2.8 Adaptall model CW-28 is a wide-angle fast prime lens for 35 mm SLR cameras popular in the 1970-90s (via the interchangeable Adaptall/Adaptall-2 mount).

It is multicoated.  The lens shows very good sharpness and contrast. There is a slight fall of resolution on the edges. It also came in silver design (see the last photo).

There is a rare version of the lens, produced in black and silver design. The key difference from the later variant is a different filter diameter (55 mm vs. 52 mm). The 2nd, 3rd and 4th photos present this very version of the Tamron 28 mm f/ 2.8 Adaptall lens.

The Tamron 28 mm f/ 2.8 Adaptall had specific advice for landscape and interior photography.
