Vivitar series 1 28-90mm f/2.8 – 3.5 lens vmc

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
VIVITAR SERIES 1 28-90MM F/2.8 – 3.5 LENS VMC

Asking Price
10.00 USD

Item Location
Colorado (United States)

Item Description
Aperture ring plus an "A" setting, so the lens has automatic metering with any K-mount camera. Macro focusing for close-up work. Lens works with digital or film bodies.

This is a good lens with excellent glass (no fungus or haze, the usual dust for a lens this age). I'm virtually giving it away so that someone can get some use out of it. The barrel has taken a beating, and is a little loose at the aperture end (which is typical for this lens series)—but this does not affect the image quality.

It's sharp at F/4 and F/5.6. The Vivitar Series 1 was highly respected back in the day. There is no oil apparent on blades, but iris is a little slow.

From Wikipedia: In the 1970s, Vivitar introduced its now-famous Series 1 lenses. These computer-designed state-of-the-art lenses were well priced and often outperformed the optics of camera manufacturers of the day.
