Just one question. Your Panagor, is it f2.8, or f3? I think f2.8, am I right?
My Panagor is 2.8, and K-mount.

Some weeks ago I bought this lens, a K-mount Vivitar 55mm f2.8 1:1 macro.
Here are some examples made with this lens. Most of them are shown elsewhere
on the forum before, I hope you don't mind I show them here again.....
Superb shots! I never heard of this Vivitar lens before. I don't think you overpaid for it - I've seen the Takumar 50mm macro selling for more.

I had that lens, and sold it when I got a good deal on an FA 50/2.8 macro. But I am not certain I made the right call, I had some lovely pictures from it.
