[SOLD] Vivitar 28mm f/2.8 Close Focus

Great manual focusing lens with the auto aperture so you can use your flash. See the reviews and thread on this lens for samples of what this baby is capable of. I'm really sad to see this one go, but it'll get a great new home here.

The 28mm focal length is just about ideal for gatherings, family reunions, parties, or anywhere you have limited room to work. With the high resolution, wide angle, and generous depth of field offered by this lens, it's hard to go wrong.

The Close Focus is a nice bonus and allows you to get a mere 5.5 inches away from your subject.

Price is $70 plus shipping.

Need a fast 50mm or the new AL II kit lens? Check my other ads!

These pictures were taken with the A series 50mm f/2.0:

Good price on a super sharp little lens. I think you'll regret selling it though.

The 18-55mm AL II has a few interested ahead of you, but the Vivitar is still available if you want it. I'll get shipping info as requested & PM you with a total.

This is worth more than $70, IMO, It's just sort of an obscure lens, so people don't know about it. It's a Vivitar made by Komine - in other words, a Series 1 lens, not labled as such. I think hey were making these with Komine before they decided to come up with the Series-1 name to designate the higher quality lens lines they were beginning to design.

Here are some snapshots taken with mine: --> Viv 28 2.8 close focus
