It looks like a lot of the Vivitar/Cosina variants. Good but not great. I think it's been bid up to about max value already. I paid $25 and $35 for similar lenses with an A setting. My advice, let this one pass and keep looking.

I've seen about 6-8 variants of this. It's a decent lens for US$20.

I have that exact lens. It's all right but I put at the end of my list of primes for taking images that call to me. Bid is now about us$32, that's as high as I would go for it. Heck, I'd probably let mine go for $35.
