Opinions on VIVITAR SERIES 1 24-70 3.8 MACRO?

HI All,
Has anyone had any experience with the VIVITAR SERIES 1 24-70 3.8 MACRO? Stumbled across one of these lenses in a local camera shop, could not find much of info on the internet, only thing I know is it was made by Cosina in the early 90.
Thanks
David

I have one too. I am going to play with it on the weekend and see what I get.

After receiving in a job lot I initially thought it was a 28-70 but on close inspection realised it was "24". I am going to compare against the following lenses

24mm 3.5 Super Tak
35mm 3.5 Super Tak
50mm 2.0 Pentax A

I will add a Kenko 1.5X teleconverter to the 50mm to test the 70mm focal length (nothing appropriate to test the lens at this length).

Will report soon and perhaps put up a review.
