OK I know that posting this here may help push the bids up. But I thought others may be interested in watching this like I am.

I like that, for as long as I have been reading this forum, Goodwill prices were great "2-3 years ago before everyone found out about them". I've been a member for 8 years, and lurked even before that.
I registered there in January 2010 but didn't start bidding until April.

First purchase was a Canon T70 w/ FD 50/1.8 for $28. My next purchase wasn't until August, a Sears 50/1.7 for $5.00 + $5.50 shipping. One of the best purchases I've ever made...after that I was addicted. I don't even want to figure out how much I've spent there in the last 5 years

I found out about them about 5-6 years ago, then they were promoted on-line a couple more times and I have been watching prices rise for the last couple of years. For the most part. I think the price of K1000s has dropped as well as 50/1.4 M42s, but anything medium and large format, anything considered collectible - boom. I don't think that Vivitar would have hit that amount 3 years ago but then that may be reflective of more demand by mirrorless folks and high end buyers.

The Vivitar is super rare - only about 30 copies known to exist - and has been selling at auction for 1k+ for a while now, so a $700 ending price, even for a sample of unknown quality, is actually quite low.
