Item Description

I think this is one of the best 135mm lens values, if you already have an adapter. It's a typical 5 element 4 group design, uses a 55mm filter, 6 blades, minimum aperture f22, minimum focus distance 1.5m, 400g. The aperture ring clicks at all stops and half stops through f16. It's made by Komine, a good maker of sleeper lenses.

The reviews here are accurate. I also tested this particular lens here: There's a lot of photos in the links.

The lens works perfectly. Focus is smooth, the aperture ring clicks at all the right places, the auto/manual switch works, there's no fungus, oily blades or scratches. Tle lens hardly looks used. It includes an original rubber slip-on cap and a generic plastic M42 screw-on cap.

I'm also including an older version of the Vivitar 2X-1 teleconverter. It has a dial on it to indicate the effective aperture when using the TC. The dial is just informational, it doesn't alter anything. I listed it as a freebie because it has some light scratches on it. I assume they're from poor cleaning. I couldn't get them to show up in a photo, and they're not terrible. I haven't actually used this. The weight shouldn't affect shipping prices either way. It includes a really cheap rear cap but no front cap.

Larger versions of these photos are in this album.

Lens extended to maximum length.
