Latest Review Posted Vivitar series 1 24-48mm f3.8 (kiron 22xxxx)
Its an interesting lens. Its solidly built but very heavy and large. The diameter of the aperture ring is recessed and very close to the zoom ring, so it wasn't uncommon while setting the aperture that I would throw my zoom off. The IQ is okay but the limited range, long minimum focus distance, slow aperture, having to adjust your focus every time you change focal lengths (non-parfocal), and the heft of the lens makes it much more of a hassle then using a wide angle prime and just moving closer to your subject. It definitely looks cool, but its really just an obscure zoom for collectors.
