[SOLD] Phoenix (Vivitar, Cosina) 100mm F3/5 Macro

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Phoenix (Vivitar, Cosina) 100mm F3/5 Macro

Item Description
This is the manual focus lens which is apparently better built than the autofocus, having a metal mount. I bought it off a seller on Ebay USA who advertised it as AF and then found out it wasn't. I have a Tamron 90mm manual focus lens alread so do not need 2. It is absolutely mint condition, boxed with 1:1 matched lens and actually gives excellent results.
Pictures of lens below plus a quick test shot of the macro capabilities I took when first getting the lens.

This is a nice lens at a nice price for someone in Europe who doesn't want to deal with duty etc. It is half the weight and smaller than the incredible Vivi Series 1... and one-third the price. I find it not quite as sharp, but that can be an advantage for flower pix etc. That's why I've kept mine. Lots of pix on my flickr page.

Someone snap it up!
