Philadelphia (United States)

Item Description
I picked this up with some other items, but have more lenses than I can shake a stick at, so am trying not to keep things "just in case." This is a screw mount lens, including both the rear cap and the front, metal, press on cap. There are no signs of drops or significant dings or scratches, but there is a decent amount of just general wear... black paint a little rubbed off the edge here and there. It includes a Promaster UV filter (hot dog.) The glass, importantly, is super clear all over. That's really the extent of my knowledge on this lens. When the stop-down pin is depressed it closes the aperture at all stops, these things aren't rocket science so I think you're fine. I don't have an m42-k adapter otherwise I'd run it through its paces. If you buy this and there something seriously wrong with it then of course I'll take it back. Thanks for looking.

Does the A/M switch work properly?

That's one of the best of the old Vivitar 28s -- Kiron-made.
