Item Description
Another pawn shop find, a good Vivitar 400mm f5.6 m42 mount prime. Glass is clean but the lens is a bit dusty from being in storage. Includes front and rear caps. Focuses smoothly with good resistance, but there is a bit of a wiggle in the focus ring and in the mount. Doesn't seem to affect anything on my K-30 but did lead to a dark corner on the Spotmatic I tested it on. Probably just needs someone to take apart the end and tighten everything up, or just use it as-is on aps-c.

For a 50+ year old lens, it did pretty well in my tests this weekend... minor work in LR6, that's it.

Awesome way to get a giant telephoto for a bargain price!

Edited for a price drop, more realistic I think.
