I have the same lens, did not try it out (it is with TX mount). But I think I have a lemon. If I hold the bottom of the lens in one hand and top in another hand, I feel that the bottom is 'loose'. that is it moves from side to side.

Can you please see if yours does not do that?

I know your messsage is couple of month old, but hope you can read my question.

thank you in advance

I'm at work right now and cannot look but most times what you describe can be corrected by tightening up several screws on the lens barrel. Slide the lens shade out and look. If they are not there then roll back the rubber grip and look there. I'll get back to you again after I get home and look at mine. It is not loose I know but where the screws are should be the same for a TX or a T4.

Just so you know this is a quite common thing with older lens of this type. Not just Vivitars. Usually it doesn't affect the image and most of the time can be fixed easily.
