how much should i offer for this lens?

Im looking to buy this Vivitar 28mm f2.8 lens that is in great condition from a member of another forum and i wanted to know how much I should offer him. glass is clean of fungus, scratches, dust etc and barrel is just as nice.

Here are some pictures of it.

I don't know where you are but in this country that lens would probably go for 20-30 in a shop so I would be inclined to offer 20 for it and go to 25 if you need to. It looks OK but just that.

I sold the same thing in near mint shape on fleabay not long ago. It got $38.00 . It's an M lens and A series Pentax SMC 28's only seem to get $90-100.

The genuine pentax-M 28mm lenses seem to go for €30-50 nowadays on ebay...that's about 36-60$, without shipping.

I'd offer him 25$ and see where it goes from there...
