i've never owned a series one lens, but it does indeed look like the komine 70-210 version tested higher than the kiron version? Vivitar Series One 70-210 Macro Zooms - Mark Roberts Photography

the o.p. has the 28-90, tho, and i haven't seen any test results for that lens.

I just purchased the Komine 70-210 from eBay and should get it in the next few days. I'll post some pics.

Its reputation is solid haha. no need for tests. 28-90 is insanely sharp.

Thanks for lots of info. I actually got the lens yesterday and posted a few cropped pictures here if you're interested in this lens' performance in a difficult shooting condition (indoors, at night, no flash):
