Hello. A few years back I bought a Tamron SP 500mm f/8 55BB mirror lens but never really used it.

Today I attached it to my D7000 and it took some decent practice pictures, but the camera body reads that it took them at F2. My understanding is that the Tamron lens is fixed at F8. I tried it on Aperture Priority as well as Manual and it either reads an aperture of F2 or no F stop at all.

I was wondering if anybody else has experienced this problem with this lens and has a suggestion and/or explanation.

Thanks for your help. . I am a rank beginner.
