Vivitar 135 M42 mount f2.8 – Komine version

Asking Price
35 plus shipping

Item Location
Nova Scotia (Canada)

Item Description
I am selling a copy of the famous Komine Vivitar 135 –serial # 28921691. Metal body in great shape – no major scratches or scuffs, hardly any paint wear, slide-out lens hood works perfectly.

Aperture blades smooth and responsive with no oil; auto-manual switch slides well. Focus ring nice and smooth. It really is a sharp lens, with very nice colour and contrast.

There are no scratches or fungus on any of the glass elements, front or rear. But there is one issue – on one side of the front lens there looks to be some element separation. It’s a patch of about 2cm long and 1 cm wide, near the outer edge of the lens. This isn’t fungus orm old, and it has not changed in years. You can see it somewhat in one of the photos.

However, on an APS cropped sensor, this part of the lens doesn’treally show. I have not seen any signs of this blemish on any of my photos. I include a snapshot here so you can see. Again, there are no scratches on the glass.

I’m selling this legacy lens because I haven’t used it since I got the Pentax 55-300.

I will include a Pentax back cap, and also a whitebalance front cap.

I am selling the above (what I am calling option A) for $35 plus shipping.This is less than I paid for it.

I am also offering two other options:

Option B – lens, rear cap, front white balance cap + M42 to Pentax P/K adaptor: all for $45.
Option C – all the above, plus a mint Henrys 55mm UV filter: all for $55.

I also have the original Vivitar box that it came in.


NOTE: my photos won't upload - I will try again tomorrow.

Are you the original owner of the item being sold?
