Vivitar Series 1 55mm f1.2 (price reduced) Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Vivitar Series 1 55mm f1.2

Asking Price

Item Location
South East of Finland (Finland)

Item Description
I'm selling excellent conditions and extreamy RARE Vivitar Series 1 55mm f1.2 lens (K-bajonet). There are no stracthes or other kind marks of use on lens and the glasses are also in great shape. With lens there will be both caps, Asian 58mm hood, Marumi MC-UV filter (which have been used all the time) and soft case. Basically only the front (plastic) cap has two very small stractches. I do not have original box anymore.

I'm willing to consider to ship the lens only to the countries where Finland's post's EMS can offer (and guarantee) unbroken tracking from here to the possible buyer. So if you are interested in to buy this lens...please send me PM and tell me where you I can check if that is possible to your country and what would be the shipping charge (basically something between 58,50US$ and 104US$). The buyer pays the shipping charge (which is not incl. to lens price).

I will ship the lens to the buyer after I have gotten the payment. After I have shipped the Iens I will tell the parcel's tracking number to the buyer.

Import duties, taxes and charges are not included in the item price or shipping charges.These charges are the buyer's responsibility.

PS: Inside of European Union area..I naturally would prefer EU-Bank Transfer as payment method more than PayPal.

Are you the original owner of the item being sold?

Are you selling or trading this item?

It looks (and should be) identical to the Revuenon 55 1.2 (same as Cosina but metal focus ring), based on the old Tomioka design, maybe the coatings are different.

Thanx for comments here. Yep...this is very rare lens...the rariest of all VS1s.

Perhaps the production number of lens will tell/confirm something here?

Damn that's a nice lens! If I didn't already own the Cosina version I'd be all over it. Good luck with your sale.

This is very rare lens and unlike other Cosina clones it has some minor exterior differences. I have one with rubberized focus ring.
