Vivitar Series 1: 28/1.9

Item for Sale
Two Vivitar Series 1: 28/1.9 and 90/2.5

Asking Price
140.00 USD

Item Location
Littleton, Colorado (United States)

Item Description
I have used these two Vivitars for about two years. The 90/2.5 is, as is well known, a very sharp lens. Build-quality is first class. The 28/1.9 is becoming difficult to come by. It is also very well built. A bit susceptible to flare, but sharp corner to corner after closing down a stop or two. Here are a few reviews of these two lenses and there are more on the net:

Vivitar Series 1 "Bokina" (tokina) 90mm F2.5 Macro Lens Reviews - Vivitar Lenses - Pentax Lens Review Database
Tokina AT-X 90mm f/2.5 Macro
theatre of noise: Vivitar Series 1 28mm Review Part 1
This 40 year old lens easily keeps up with today's crop of 28mm lenses - DIY Photography

90/2.5: Excellent condition except that there is a tiny scratch in the steel barrel. No metal exposed. I could not photo it well, but like to bring it up. I do not have the original caps but will put in a front and a rear caps. Glass is in pristine condition. Aperture functions well. $170 including shipping. 90/2.5 is sold.

28/1.9: Very good condition on the outside. I think the lens might have been serviced before as the front element has "marks" along its circumference and there are paint losses on a screw inside the front element. I do not feel that it affects performance, but likes to bring it up. $140 including shipping
