Vivitar 55mm f/2.8 1:1 macro (Komine)

Item for Sale
Vivitar 55mm f/2.8 1:1 macro

Asking Price
$125 USD

Item Location
Madison, WI (United States)

Item Description
Up for sale is a very nice Vivitar 55mm f/2.8 1:1 macro. This is really an awesome lens! Nice compact macro that extends out for full 1:1 magnification. It's pretty dang sharp right from f/2.8, best from f/5.6-on, and has a bit of an old-school, warm color cast. Regular K mount. Works in manual mode with stop-down metering.

I'd call this Excellent- condition. There is some very small rubbing around the edges, and some mount wear. That's it. Oh, and the inspection sticker is a little wrinkled.

Will ship anywhere within North America. Shipping charge is based on however you want it shipped. I'll do your choice of FedEx, UPS or USPS. Let me know what you prefer and I'll run an estimate with that service's calculator.

such a beauty and its not taken up yet. I have a similar copy of the panagor 55mm macro and it takes great pictures. If I have not have the panagor copy, I would have snap this up long ago..ok some images taken with the similar macro ..




Add extension tube of 21mm for magnification..






shorter focal length is good for taking ants, spiders etc..

I have an offer from...Singapore! This person is first in line but understands that I prefer a US buyer.

If anyone in the US is interested, now's your chance before this lens makes a flight across the Pacific.

I PM'd... and I'm pretty sure Florida is in the US. :-)

I already have the Sigma 50mm 1:1 but I've been looking at this lens for a long time.

Let me know.
