I have a Tamron 24/2.5 Adaptall that I bought new about 1980 give or 
take a year or so.  It appears to be the 01B model which began 
production in 1979.
This page (I think) says to use an Adaptall 2 mount with this lens. 
The original mount doesn't even say Adaptall on it... only "OL" and 
"Japan" so I had always assumed it was the original Adaptall.    Anyhow, 
I have since acquired an Adaptall 2 mount that is clearly labeled as 
such.  Other than labeling it appears to be the same thing and works the 
same way.  Both have a DOF preview slide.

I was going to tell you sure, go ahead and use the Adaptall 2.  Now I 
just noticed that both rear caps for my adapters say "Adaptall 2".  Now 
I don't know what I've got.
