Item Description
This is the time of the year. I need to downsize my stable of lenses.

I have an Excellent condition Elicar 90mm lens 2.5 1:1 Macro lens in Pentax PK/A mount (very desirable).

By my investigation, this lens is made by Kino Precision (Kiron). It was used in a dental office and still have the sticker that prove it.

I owned the Vivitar Series 1 105mm 2.5 and the Lester Dine 105mm 2.8 and this one is just as sharp as those mentioned. I kept this for a while, but I have not done much macro work and it is a shame that a lens this good does not get any use. So I am putting up for sale.

I will post pictures soon but it is the same as this but in PK/A mount

I believe you'll find this is made by Komine (not Kiron) -- same as this one:

Thanks for your input. That is what I though, but if you check here it is similar to the Panagor one:
Panagor 90mm f2.8 Macro PMC Lens Reviews - Pentax Third-Party Lens Review Database
I took it to my local camera shop and according to his finding it is a Kiron Made. So I will leave it for debate. Most of the sources says that it is Kiron Made.

Click the link, scroll down to the entry by Phil1.

I don't think there's any debate, just some misinformation that got posted and propagated

Duncsuss is correct. The Elicar and Panagor 90mm macro lenses are NOT made by Kiron. It is made by Komine. There's no argument there, every authoritative source agrees on this.

Furthermore, there's quite a difference in sharpness and price between the Kiron/Komine versions....
