Vivitar Series 1 70-210mm f/2.8-4 (third edition Komine))

Hello, I just bought this manual focus lens, so here is the gallery of today's abstracts.
I like the lens, although CA is clearly apparent in many situations, nevertheless I plan to keep it, and learn to use. It's very sharp, colors and contrast are nice. Manual focus is not easy to do, but I hope it gets better with practice.

There seems to be nothing wrong with your manual focus! The lens is definitely sharp, as the images testify. The CA is easily correctable in PP, and for my tastes I'd maybe punch up the contrast a bit, but I think it's worth keeping too.
