Latest Review Posted Vivitar (Komine 28xxxx) 28mm F2.0 MC Close Focus Wide Angle
I bought this based upon the reviews here, but had not really used it. I intended to sell it since there seems to be interest, but thought I'd give it a test before actually listing it.

I took it out at day's end. I was very impressed with its sharpness and its color rendition. I was especially impressed by the fact that I was shooting some metal objects in bright light and even the ones that were backlit had no purple or green fringing.

The one mild disappointment given that this is a pretty wide lens was an apparent fall off in sharpness when shooting landscape scenes. You can probably blame that on a photographer not really accustomed to manual lenses. And fall off, in this case, is relative to the stellar sharpness on near objects.

Sorry to the folks who have this lens on their wanted list....I'll be keeping it a little longer.
