[SOLD] Vivitar (Kiron) 2.8/100mm Macro 1:1 :in EU (Worldwide) Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Vivitar (Kiron) 2.8/100mm Macro 1:1

Asking Price
290eur (Reduced from 325eur) incl paypal fee /obo

Item Location
Tampere, Finland

Item Description
I'm selling some of my not so often used lenses and I know I'm going to regret this but...

Vivitar 2.8/100mm Macro 1:1 PK-A

This is essentially the same legendary lens as Kiron/Lester A. Dine/Vivitar Series 1 105mm Macro. Beutifully made by Kino Precision (Kiron) in Japan.

- Comes with both caps and original box
- Glass is flawless, has had a 52mm skylight filter (which I'm also including) on since I got the lens
- Focusing and aperture work just as they should
- Aperture ring has the A-setting so only focus is manual
- Barrel has some wear but nothing major
- The mount has been opened by the previous owner (with a wrong size screwdriver) and the screws are a bit damaged (not stripped though)
- Bought from this marketplace in 2009
- Reason for selling: because I don't really shoot that much macro and I need the money for a K-r!

I had this lens (recently sold on the forum) and I can vouch for it. It is a stellar performer, like, really stellar. Good luck with the sale.
