Nah, there are so many of them I think you can still find a good deal out there. And if anything skyrocketed the Viv 28 market, it was Robin's thread

Vivitar 100mm macro - definitely one of my favourite lenses ever

I don't normally quote a photo, but I loved this one so much I just had to

Beautiful gallery, Piotr.

Of all the lenses I've sold (and I've sold many), this is the only one I still regret selling. If anyone is thinking of letting theirs go, let me know!

Vivitar (Komine) 200mm f 3.5--a superb performer, especially on the K20's C-mos sensor where blooming is a non-issue. I just sold it; it is becoming increasingly difficult, even to myself, to justify all these lenses which are rarely used.

Here it is at f 11, 1/80th, ISO 100:

I have a beautiful, mint M42 version of this lens. I agree it's a great performer, and even though I don't use it much, I'm not going to sell it because it's a highly underrated lens that doesn't fetch much money. That's my excuse for keeping it, anyway

These are with the Vivitar 24/2 I have in KA mount. It seems to like taking shots of blue things.

The ever-popular Vivitar Series 1 105mm, which is amazing not just for macro shots.
