[SOLD] Vivitar 28mm f/2.8 SMS

Very nice manual lens in very good condition. Glass is clear with no fungus. Take a look at the bottom picture for what this lens can produce for IQ. Terrific! ANOTHER superb Komine made lens.

Asking $40 obo.



I'll update with a few pictures taken with this lens...

At f/8 in full sun. You can tell by the shadows that the sun was in front. No hood on the lens and flare is non existant anywhere on the full image. AMAZING!

This is a 100% crop with no post processing at all. JPG straight from K100D. Not a bad lens at all!

Jim, that crop is really impressive - The color and sharpness/resolution on the flower surface... These old Vivs never cease to amaze me. Looks like it holds up to the CF version pretty well to me.

You're right Jay. Mid aperture it'll stack up to just about ANY 28mm lens out there.

I actually like the color balance in this SMS lens better than the Close Focus lens. The reds are especially well controlled. It may even be a tiny bit sharper in the mid range as you can see. The CF is good just about everywhere, that's where the difference lies.

Dollar for dollar, any of the Vivitars are definately hard to beat.
