Vivitar 20mm f3.5 M42

I got this lens with a bunch of other gear as a lot. It has the ability to focus pretty closely which I like to use for flower pics, as ia probably obvious here. I also like the bokeh and rendering for floral subjects. For more distant objects it looks terrible to me so I save it as a specialty lens.

I notice in the lens database there is a 19mm Vivitar which looks similar so they may be the same lens. Vivitar apparently has a history of adding or subtracting 1mm from the lens focal lengths.
