Item Location
Connecticut USA

Item Description
Vivitar 28mm f/2.5 M42 "Auto" - 35.00 Shipped

This is an M42 Screwmount Auto. It hass the Auto/Manual switch and is the functional equivalent of a Super Takumar mechanically.

Nice fast, wide angle lens. Glass is excellent, body is excellent except that the filter ring is dented just a tiny bit. This is visible in the photo below. It's a 67mm filter rig, and it is dented just enough that I could not fit a filter. The dent does not show paint damage, so it might be possible to get this back in round. Other than that lens is in excellent condition.

The focus is ** very ** smooth and silky, aperture detents are crisp, aperture blades are clean and operate crisply. This one has a rather large element and the filter ring looks and acts like a hood. Sharp wide open, this is a very nice bargain lens. Comes with generic caps front and back.
