Please be aware that these lenses with signs of fungus/haze/condensation have NOT been stored together and they have not shared lens caps or cases. I keep them in separate plastic bags with silica gel packets and away from my digital lenses. They've also gotten some UV treatment in my bright sunny window and have been stored in a cool and dry environment. So you don't have to worry about buying a lens from me that could have possibly had contact with a dirty lens.

Silly question, but being a new Pentax SLR user does the Vivitar lens focus in the opposite direction of Pentax brand lenses?
