[SOLD] Vivitar 500/8 Multicoated Mirror Lens w/ Case and Filters - $60 shipped

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Vivitar 500/8 Multicoated Mirror Lens w/ Case and Filters - $60 shipped

Asking Price
$60 shipped within the US

Item Location
Maryland (United States)

Item Description
For sale is a Vivitar 500/8 mirror lens in excellent condition. It comes with both caps and a hard leather case (also in excellent condition) and three filters (clear, ND2, ND4) which are stored in a hidden compartment in the top of the lens case. This lens gives you a lot of reach in a small package. However, I will say that if you are expecting pixel perfect sharp shots at 500mm with this lens (especially handheld) you will be disappointed. The IQ is ok, but certainly this is a case where you get what you pay for (in terms of both size and cost). Just wanted to throw that out there, not as a knock on this particular copy of the lens, but just as a general comment about inexpensive 500mm f/8 mirror lenses

The mirror lens club has many fine examples of images made with mirror lenses, so I don't know if it is necessary to slander the entire genre.

Was yours "Made in Korea"?

No, don't get me wrong, I wasn't trying to slander the entire genre at all. I was just saying that an inexpensive 500/8 like this ones isn't going to be outstanding as compared with much more expensive (faster and heavier) telephoto lenses.

Yes, this one was made in Korea (you can kind of see it in the far left of the first picture. The serial number is 6121027.
