Item Description
Vivitar 85 1.4 - This is the lens that has many names (Rokinon, Samyang, Bower, etc...). It is an excellent performer. It is an excellent lens - bottom line.

Item condition - I listed it as good because the focus throw is stiffer going one way than the other (every copy I've used was like this). It isn't bad, and certainly isn't a loose focus. But I figured I would share that with you. The glass is clean, the focus is accurate with both my lenses (I hit about 80%) with this lens at 2.0 or above with stock focus screen. Focus confirm is spot on without any adjustment.

Here is one of the gems I have captured with this - Z & S Photography | August 2014

Why buy this copy over the others listed now? - It is the Vivitar so it is the black and red style (that they all went to on the new versions), so it is a bit different than most. And the price is as good as you will see this at.

It comes with a rubber 3 stage hood, a nikon front cap, and generic rear cap.

$180 Shipped to US, international PM for price.

How good is this lens wide open? A portrait of my middle daughter with it.
