[SOLD] [US] Vivitar 120-600mm Telephoto Zoom Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Vivitar 120-600mm Telephoto Zoom

Asking Price

Item Location
Arizona, USA

Item Description
Vivitar 120-600mm
Telephoto Zoom
Multi Coated
F 5.6 - F8.0
Filter: 82mm
Adjustable/Rotating Tripod Mount
Weight: 4 pds 14 oz
Length: 12" to 15.5" (without built in hood)
Pentax K mount (has been modified to fit Pentax AF)
Front and rear cap included. Comes with carry case.

This is a big and heavy lens in excellent condition. No dings, dents or scratches on barrel or glass. Aperture is crisp and snappy. Zoom and focusing is smooth and tight. Great solid quality lens. The inside looks clean - I can't see any dust specs. There is a small area where the paint is missing - obviously rubbed off, right at the bottom of the mount an can be seen in picture 7.

I have noticed a little bit of sensor reflection with small aperture on the short end (common on some pre digital lenses), but that never bothered me since I bought the lens for the long end. I have used it for many moon shots and I think it is a great optical quality for the low price. I took a lot of nice Moon shots with it.

No low ball offers please, this is a rare piece in K mount.

Yes - this is manual focus. And it is a K lens (not KA) so it has to be used in M-Mode with pushing the Green Button for metering.

If I didn't just buy one I'd buy yours. It's a great lens I love mine.
