About Vivitar 28-210 Macro zoom f/3.5-5.6

I sold this lens in Marketplace as a package to another member for roughly $30. It is not bad if you ask me about a zoom that goes from 28mm to 210mm in one lens. It is of course not the best and understandably have compromise on sharpness.

I wrote a blog post with thoughts on the lens and a slide show with test images

Vivitar 28-210 Macro Zoom Test Shots - Hin's Tech Corner

Original thread that I sold the lens along with P5 film body and a great Hanimax 80-200 zoom

Some test pictures that I like, they are soft but for the price of $30, I would have no complaints





way soft but I like the softness in the flower
