Latest Review Posted Vivitar (komine 28xxx) MC WIDE ANGLE 24mm f2
I got this lens after I asked in this forum about it. I had heard nothing about this lens. My copy has an additional legend in the front ring: RL Series. I have no clue about what that means.

I really like the Vivitars by Komine (series 28xxxxx) close focus (28mm f2 and 28mm f2.8). They are true gems. I thought this lens could be at the same level of those two and was interested. First, it is a close focus lens (min focussing distance is 30 cm, or 12 inches). The lens has good colors and behaves really nice. Wide open in a bright day outdoors, it could be "dreamy" and show spherical aberration. However, if you use it properly (with a CPL filter) or in the shadow and at close distance, this dreamy look created could be an asset. Stopped down, it is a fine lens. I reviewed this lens and compared it to one of the oldies (best Nikkor ever!) and a Leica FF camera. So, I am copying this review here for your benefit. I am keeping this lens. I think it is a good lens.

Thanks everyone for their comments. I already got the lens, it is mint and clean. So, there is no faulty characteristics that can make this lens behave erratically. So, let's see what I got. I took it for a ride around the house on my K3 (I will get the effect of a 36mm lens). I also took my Leica M (FF) with my stellar lens from the 1950s, the W-Nikkor-C 35mm f1.8 ltm to compare. I shot five subjects wide open (F2 for Vivitar, and F1.8 for Nikkor) and at f5....
