Item Description
Vivitar Series 1 105mm f2.5 Macro PKA Lens

This is the renowned Viv Series 1 macro lens which is one of the best lenses Kiron ever made. At f2.5, it is a bit faster than most macro lenses. It is built like a tank with solid metal construction throughout. Very useful built in metal hood. Super long focus throw makes focusing for macro subjects a breeze. This is an manual focus lens. Almost anyone who does macro will tell you that manual focus is much better than autofocus for getting the perfect shot. Because this lens can really fine tune the focus, you can get amazoning accurate macro shots. Once again, this lens is part of my personal collection and is perfect with almost no wear. Glass is perfect. No yellowing, haze or fungus. Aperature clicks solidly, focus is smooth and has the "A" setting for in body aperature control and flash compatibility (really important in macro work). Includes orignal hard case and original front and rear caps. If you like macro, this lens is almost impossible to beat. One touch and you'll be impressed. Asking $385 + shipping.

I also have a 49mm Takumar Metal screw on Hood for a takumar 135mm lens - Like new in gloss black $12 shipped. (see photo below)
