p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Sold: Great Alt. Lens! 135mm f/2.3 Vivitar Series 1


Up for sale is my flawless, like-new
Vivitar Series 1 (Komine) 135mm f/2.3 lens including a
Fotodiox Pro OM to EOS lens adapter (with focus confirm chip)

I am only asking $250 shipped for the lens, the Fotodiox Pro lens adapter, AND a 72mm UV filter/protector. Will also include: Original Metal Vivitar Series 1 cap, Canon E-72mm snap-on front cap, and the rear EF mount cap.

This is one of my FAVORITE lenses, a definite cult-classic and a rather rare and unknown piece of glass....That being said, it is a true performer, do not underestimate its capability simply because it is relatively unknown.

I am only selling this as I am transitioning to Nikon.

SHARP wide-open, produces unique and very pleasing bokeh, and is well-built and also has a built-in hood.

This lens was built with six glass elements in six groups, and has 9 aperture blades.

Focus is precise, smooth, aperture is exact and "snaps" at each stop.

Glass is absolutely flawless, NO dust, fungus, discoloring or any other type of damage

Komine, a well-known Japanese lens manufacturer was the factory behind this hunk of glass.

Here is some more background on this great lens:
