[SOLD] Vivitar 135mm F2.8 Macro Rare lens!

Here is another one of my Manual Focus lenses for sale:

Vivitar 135mm Auto Telephoto Close focusing F2.8

This is a Vivitar 135mm f2.8 Macro ( 1:2) for Pentax K Mount. Manual focus and manual aperture (like SMC-M lenses). Camera in M Mode, set aperture and focus on lens, green button on Camera (this will set the correct time).

The lens is in excellent condition and very sharp. I have compared it with the Vivitar 105mm Series1 lens and haven't really noticed a difference in sharpness even during large magnification. There are a few small cosmetic flaws on the lens as you can clearly see in the pictures. Minor rub marks and scratches on the edges, but no dings or dents.

There are 2 light marks on the front lens coating. They appear as light colored spots and I don't know what they are. They were there when I bought the lens. Could be marks from cleaning - I don't know, but I have not been able to show them in the photo, neither do they affect the image quality. The aperture works perfect, no oil on the blades, no dust or dirt inside the glass.
The focusing ring is smooth and well dampened, just like new.

The lens is made by Komine in Japan (Serial # starts with 28...) which is a sign of high optical quality. The front filter thread is 62mm. It comes with original front cap and a generic Pentax K rear cap.

I am asking USD 100.00 plus 14.00 for USPS Priority (incl Delivery Confirmation and insurance) for shipping inside the lower 48. HI, AK and Canada will be different. I am only shipping to US an Canada. I will accept Paypal and US Postal Money Order.
