This is the pre vivitar seriesl I version. 100mm f2.8 1:1.

Sale at low price $230.

Reason for sale: Just got another series I copy of this lens. There is no need for me to keep both. If you prefer the series I version, I am willing to sell it for $300 + shipping.

fyi ... this lens is made by Kiron, also known as Kino Precision.

(Not Komine, a different company that also made lenses for Vivitar -- those lenses have serial numbers beginning 28, where Kiron-made Vivitar lenses have serial numbers beginning 22 like this one.)

ps I just bought a lens from Thomas, he described it as "mint condition" and it was exactly that ... I couldn't even see if it had ever been mounted on a camera

I'm amazed nobody has expressed interest in this lens ... it has a great reputation and seems to be a bargain. (If I didn't have the 105mm/2.8 already I'd buy it myself.)

Friendly bump ;D

tsk, I want the Series 1 Viv... but then, like most others here now, my K-7 fund would suffer a hit!

bump for a great lens!
