why is there no vivitar thread?

It's funny but considering all the posts from owners of vivitar, and / or Series 1 lens owners, I have never seen a vivitar club.

I wonder why

Hi Lowell,

here's some manufacturer's reference for the 70s - 90s, Vivitar Lens Manufacturers

Vivitar themselves never produced lenses. Same thing with Sears (of which there is a fine thread here), Porst, Revue(non) and some more.

Still of course this does not mean that there couldn't be a Viv thread, so go ahead :-)

Best, Georg (the other)

Oops, there is this thread for example:

and the newest (seems like the Vivitar brand has been bought up by a manufacturer):

Yes, I agree with you and hope someone takes the initiative to bring this club to life. You now have at least one nomination for the post.
