[SOLD] Vivitar 28mm 1:2.8 MC Close Focus Wide Angle Lens Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Vivitar 28mm 1:2.8 MC Close Focus Wide Angle Lens

Asking Price
50 Euros

Item Description
Vivitar 28mm 1:2.8 MC Close Focus Wide Angle lens for Pentax mount. The aperture ring has an "A"-setting for metering, making this a KA-mount lens (I think?). The item comes with a rear and a front cap whereas the latter is not the original cap. To my knowledge and judging from the serial number the manufacturer is Komine. This lens accepts 49mm filters.

The item is really in very good condition, only the black paint has faded a bit in places (mostly on the focus ring, see pics). The aperture works very snappy and there doesn't seem to be any excess oil on the blades. The focus ring operates smoothly and I could not find any dust or fungus in the lens. The front lens looks flawless to me. If you look very closely there might be some slight marks on the rear lens, which I trust don't affect overall performance. In fact I have taken several hundred pictures with this lens and it has always performed extremely well. I am only selling it because I got the FA 31 Limited in the meantime and need to fund purchase of other lenses...

Any questions will be gladly answered.

Wow, an "A" version of the 28mm 2.8 Close Focus!? Didn't know that existed.

The non-A version is superb, this should be snapped up pretty quickly. I just bought another non-A version a little while ago, otherwise I'd be buying this baby...

jsherman: yeah, the lens is actually really great (and I guess somewhat rare?). I shouldn't be selling it but rather consider myself lucky for finding this - but then again I don't have a whole lot of use for it...
