ozphoto: ugh...I DID have a Tamron Adaptall 2 28-80...which I traded for a Canon 35-70 f4 for the simple reason that I wanted the zoom to match the rest of my Canon-only FD glass. I never use zooms for film anyways, so I figured if it's gotta collect dust, it might as well be a Canon...originally I wasn't going to take any film bodies on my trip, and at home I usually use primes...well after my first roll through my AE-1P I decided to take it with me...and now wishing I had a zoom that started at 28mm or wider...
