Item Description
This is an all-metal 80-200mm manual focus zoom lens with PK mount, showing very little sign of wear.

The zoom action is smooth, but the resistance lessens between 135mm and 200mm which can feel odd at first. That said, it doesn't stick at any point, and there is no zoom creep (i.e., it holds the zoom setting when you point the lens downwards).

Focus is smooth across the entire range.

There are no scratches on the glass and just a little dust. The aperture blades are snappy with no trace of oil, and the aperture ring clicks at each f-stop.

The front element is recessed about a half inch, and with the included rubber lens hood this makes it well shaded to protect against flare.

"Kiron" lenses were made by Kino Precision in Japan -- they also built many of the highly-respected Vivitar lenses of the 70s and 80s (such as the "Series 1" 105mm/2.5 macro).
