This is one of the very few times I was able to capture the reds EXACTLY as they looked in real life! I've always enjoyed using this lens. It has never disappointed me.

Thanks Photomax. I know I sound like a broken record when it comes to praising this old lens, but it's probably the best $15.00 yard sale find I ever made! It's sharp, shoots 1:4 close focus, provides some nice bokeh and renders saturated colors very well. It's a "one lens does it all" type, at least for most of the kind of shooting I do.

Only had a few Vivitar lenses (135mm f2.8 + 300mm f5.6) but recently received a Series 1 70-210mm V2 as part of a bundle purchase...it's in like new condition...cannot wait to try it out when the weather improves...if I get images anywhere near as good as yours I'll be happy.

Some of the Vivitar lenses I own have provided me with some amazing photographs, and the Series 1 lenses are in a class of their own. The lens I used for the photo above was taken with a Tamron, not a Vivitar.
