Well, can't wait to see what this thing will do. I gota MINT Pentax ME Super, M 50mm f/1.7, Vivitar 75-205 f/3.8 (w/matched 2x) all for $61 shipped. I don't think I did too bad.

dawg, that's a totally different lens. the s1 70-210 is in a class of it's own. the 75-205 is not a s1 lens.

I know that Roy but Vivitar used the same number system for all their lenses between 1970 and 1990. Here is a quote from the Camera Quest site.

So how do you know which factory really made which Vivitar lens? A former Vivitar executive provided this info. Vivitar used this lens numbering coding system from about 1970 to 1990, for ALL their 35mm lenses. As personnel changed with the sale of the company, older lens suppliers probably continued this number system for an undetermined time after 1990, however the newer lens suppliers did NOT use it. If your lens does not match this numbering system, it was manufactured either before 1970, or after this numbering system was discarded under new corporate ownership circa 1990.
