Back '80s when I was first getting into photography, Vivitar had a pretty good reputation, especially for their Series 1 lenses. I have a Vivitar 70-210 zoom for my 35mm Minolta cameras that is truly excellent. The only Vivitar lens I have in a Pentax mount is a Cosina-made 28mm f2.8. I wasn't all that fond of it at first, but the more I use it, the more it grows on me. It's really a matter of coming to understand its strengths and weaknesses and making the best use of what it does well. Since you already have the lenses, why not take them each for an extended test drive and see what there is to like about them. You just may be pleasantly surprised.
