Vivitar 28-85mm

a very nice gentleman sent this lens to me for the price of shipping. i've been looking for one for a long time at a low price and never bid on the ones that came up on the bay. glad i waited as $5 is about as cheap as it comes.
3 shots, all wide open f2.8, in the shade, and 100% crop. 28mm, 50mm, 85mm.

OMG you got a Stovepipe (Kiron/Kiron Made 28-85mm f2.8-3.8) for $5 dammit! haha I had to pay $95 for my Vivitar 28-90mm.

Lucky!

Nice lens roy. And what a price! Even if it didn't work at all, many paper weights are more expensive! Nice catch!
