Re attaching mirror lenses, I think I got an attachment ring for mine from Jessops - it certainly wasn't anywhere near 100GBP! Worked fine on my EOS 600/50E. Haven't tried it on my 300D - maybe I should dig it out and give it a go. But you're right, you'll only get AP and no autofocus. Still, a cheap way of getting equivlant of 800mm!
cazmockett, you could well indeed got your AD2 adapter from Jessops, but sadly Tamron no longer manufacture such product! the second hand market is your only choice! I tried Jessops many times, without any luck, but managed to get one from a UK company trading on E-bay.
be careful with the 3ood some of the older lenses will not work with it. error99 will come up with some older sigma and tamron lenses.I must sell my sigma 70-210 2.8 becouce it will not work on my 300d.works great on my 30d.
