General Notes:
1.) Promaster AF lenses were manufactured by Tamron (same thing except for a rubber focusing ring), Sigma and Cosina. The last Promaster AF lenses were iirc discontinued around 2010 or 2011 (Cosina stopped offering the AF lines in 2006 already), as of 2012 only a few of them are left in stock of some shops.
