[SOLD] Vivitar 55mm Screwmount Macro

For Sale: Vivitar 55mm F2.8 Screw mount (M42) lens for Pentax. One of the sharpest 50/55mm Macros ever built. Goes 1:1 without any adapter. Built by Komine.

I have multiple of them in my collection, this is the nicest one. I would almost consider this in collector's grade.
Barrel looks like mint.Lens, glass and aperture completely mint. Only the front aluminum lens cap has a few minor scratches.

Can be used on any K Mount Pentax with M42 adapter (not included).

really? The sticker does mean a lot? I have a few lenses with that sticker and I didn't think much of it. HogRider, I will most likely be buying one of your 55m macro vivitars? Is the glass on both of them in the same condition? If you were to shoose, would you pick this one or the K mount you have?

The glass is great on both of them. The barrel on the M42 is nicer (like new). I cannot see any differences in optical quality. For practical purposes the K - Mount version makes probably more sense, although I have always enjoyed working with screw mount lenses a lot.

the passed decal gives an indication of use.
it's kind of like looking at the bottom of a chain saw.
