[SOLD] Vivitar 200mm f/3.5 Auto Telephoto lens, in PK mount

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Vivitar 200mm f/3.5 (Komine) Auto Telephoto lens, in PK mount

Asking Price
$60 or reasonable offer

Item Description
Vivitar 200mm f/3.5 Auto Telephoto lens, in PK mount. 62mm filter diameter. Serial number 28809990 indicates that Komine was the maker.

Build quality is excellent, all metal and heavy. The focus ring operates smoothly with no binding or looseness. The aperture blades (8 of them) are clean and snappy. There is a built in lens hood. Minimum focus distance is 6 feet.

The barrel of the lens is super clean, with no scratches or paint wear. All of the markings are clear and legible. The original JMDC PASSED label is still present, and it indicates 1979 as the year of manufacture.

The glass is clean, with no signs of fungus or scratches. A minor amount of internal dust is present, as would be expected of a lens this age. The only flaw in the glass that I can see is a very minor rub mark on the front element coating. I was not able to make it show up in the attached images. It has no effect at all on image quality.

Front and rear caps are included.

Thanks for looking!

I tested the Vivitar 3.5 against the Pentax 200 f4 here: https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/pentax-slr-lens-discussion/52678-pentax-2...omparison.html

Some interesting discussion here for this very nice Vivitar lens.

You are welcome--no problem. I did the test to pass the info along. I like this lens a lot, especially @ f11--my copy is a M42 mount.
