[SOLD] Vivitar 24mm f/2 Manual Focus Lens (CONUS) Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Vivitar 24mm f/2 Manual Focus Lens

Item Description
I bought this FF manual focus lens to explore the 24mm fixed focal length with fast aperture since Iíd always wanted a fast 35mm equivalent on digital. I was hesitant to invest in the FA* 24mm f/2 straight away since I wasnít sure if Iíd use the focal length a lot. My thinking was that if I liked it, I would sell it and buy the FA* 24mm. As it turns out, I rarely used this lens. The nice thing about this lens is that it is VERY small, only ~2Ē in length Ė so if youíre looking for a poor manís Limited, at this price, itís worth the risk. On my k100d Super, at f/2 it renders softly, with a bit of a milky sheen, but it starts to sharpen up by 2.8, and by f/4 itís fine. If you intend to convert most of your images to B&W, I found the f/2 rendering actually quite pleasing. Itís very hard to find a 24mm f/2 at a decent price, so I suspect this will go quickly. Includes both lens caps. Selling for $100 US + $10 shipping.

If it has an "A" position on the aperture ring it can't be M42.
