[SOLD] Vivitar Series 1 90mm/2.5 (Bokina) w/ 1:1 Converter (CONUS) Marketplace Listing

Item Description
I love this lens and really wish I could keep it but due to health reasons, I can no longer hold the lens/camera up and focus it without using a tripod which basically means I can only use this lens on a tripod even when I'm not using the 1:1 converer. I have decided to sell it to hopefully fund a DFA 100/2.8 Macro

I have a Vivitar Series 1 90mm f/2.5 lens that I am selling. It is P/K mount with the original 1:1 converter. It is in excellent condition. I would give it a 9.5/10.
Glass is perfect, no scratches, haze, fungus or dust.
Aperture is perfect with no oil on blades.
There is a small chip in the black finish on the rim of the barrel and some scratches on the finish at the distance scale, and there is 2 very small marks in the finish on outer barrel of the 1:1 converter. There is also some very minor brassing on aperture ring.
These are the only known issues, other than that the lens is perfect.
Comes with Pentax rear cap, a regular( non Series 1) Vivitar metal lens cap and a Vivitar 58mm screw in hood that works well with this lens.

This is the same lens as the Tokina 90/2.5 macro, AKA "Bokina"

Yes, it's a legendary lens. I just don't have enough money. Otherwise I will buy it without any hesitation.
