Item Description
I have several Vivitar Series 1 lenses for sell. I have a non-Komine 70-210 f/2.8-4 S1 and a 70-210 f/3.5 S1 that I am looking to part with. Both have very little internal dust, provided their age.

Vivitar Series 1 70-210 f/2.8-4 (Serial # Starts with 09)

This is one of the legendary Viv S1 lenses that I have found myself acquiring in the past year. I honestly wasn't as blown away with the lens as I thought I would be and that's why I am selling it. It is in almost perfect condition, with original front cap, generic rear cap, original case, and manuals. This lens possesses the electronic contacts, unlike some other S1 lenses, so it will operate in AV mode with no problem. The lens shows very little signs of usage and has only one minor problem, and that appears to be a cleaning mark inside the rear element, which can be seen in the picture. $100 shipped.

Vivitar Series 1 70-210 f/3.5 (Serial # Starts with 37)

This was my first taste of the Vivitar Series 1 lenses. I really found myself enjoying this lens until I stumbled upon a chance to own a Viv S1 f/2.8-4 version of this lens. The lens has some markings on the body, including one of the previous owners' information. Under the front element, there appears to be a little cleaning mark, which does not affect image quality at all. This lens is a K-mount lens, with no electronic aperture control, so green button metering is required to effectively use this lens. Includes a Kenko UV filter, along with front and rear caps.

Momotazur, yes I can. Which one would you like samples with? I might have some readily accessible in my Photobucket account, otherwise I will post samples up tonight.

No problem, momo. I think I might have more with the 2.8-4 on my Flickr, but I can't recall at the moment, since I can't access it at work.
