[SOLD] Auto Vivitar 135mm 2.8 (m42) with case (CONUS) Marketplace Listing

Auto Vivitar 135mm 2.8 (m42) with case

Item Location
Lancaster, PA

Item Description
For sale is an M42 screw-mount Auto Vivitar 135mm 2.8 lens plus case.

Cosmetically, the lens is in very good to excellent condition. You might find a fleck or two of paint missing, but otherwise everything looks quite good. Both front and rear lens elements are free of scratches. Internally, there might be a speck or two of dust, but nothing that will affect image quality in the slightest. The stops click into place securely and smoothly. The focus ring works smoothly and is well damped.

The lens includes a telescoping, built-in hood. Some people like this feature, some don't. Luckily, the hood on this lens seems to stay in place quite securely, so you won't find it extending or retracting when you don't want it to.

The lens comes with both rear and front caps and its original carrying case in very good condition.

The sample images were shot at f3.5 and f4.5 on an old Spotmatic II. Makes a nice portrait lens on a film body.

The price is $35 plus actual shipping. I absorb any PayPal fees.

Thanks for looking!
