[SOLD] Vivitar Series 1 (v2, Tokina) 70-210 f3.5


Thanks to Okami, I now have a v3 (Komine) of this lens. So time to unload my v2. I picked up the v2 on eBay a month or two ago, but haven't used it much. Probably paid a bit more than I should have, but I was feeling flush and impatient at the time. Will sell for a loss here, or will take it to eBay if no one's interested.

Condition is good. Bit of normal wear. Slow barrel creep if the barrel starts in a middling position when turning the camera upside down. No barrel creep if the barrel starts fully "up" (i.e. towards the body). Appears fungus-free. Glass is in very good condition - no visible flaws I've found in my admittedly limited shooting. Since I'm new selling here (a handful of purchases under my belt), I'll offer the purchaser 5 days to review and inspect before considering the sale final. If, before 5 days, seller wants to return for any reason, I'll refund full price minus shipping.

Wasn't sure where to post full-size images straight from the K10D (still getting the hang of the whole post-processing bit), so they're at a field audio recording site on which I share some space with fellow geeks:

Sale includes:
  • Lens
  • Sakar 62mm UV filter
Sorry, lens caps (front & rear) not included.

Price: $50 + actual shipping (FedEx Ground / Home Delivery shipping / insurance to lower-48 contiguous US states). Other carriers, service levels, and destinations by arrangement.

Bump for lower price. Now $50 + actual shipping. Any takers before I send it off to eBay?

Also updated OP to reflect Sakar UV filter, not Promaster. Realized I'd mis-typed the brand name when I was packing it up to quote shipping for someone.

I'm quite interested, I'm sending a PM with a shipping question.

PS - I'm a newbie Pentax owner and finally got around to signing up on this forum to reply to your sale. So thanks for the motivation
