To me very similar in size to the 70-210 series 1 group 2(Tokina) and group 3 (Komine) Lenses but with a duller finish and less weight. This lens (Made By Kiron for Vivitar)is a sleeper as far as cost to IQ ratio goes.

very nice lens.. great IQ and color. it's just not quite good enough to replace the smc A70-210/4.. the smc M80-200/4.5 is another missed lens..

decent??? quite more than that.. it's a great lens and really deserves a version s1 label. i'll bet this is one of the prototypes that vivitar used for their s1 series .

Could be. I got that 2 touch 75-205 lens on Ebay, and will post a comparison of the 2 touch and the 1 touch push pull lens when the 2 touch lens gets here.
