Default Photos with a Vivitar 200mm f/3.5 preset

A recent arrival given to me by a kind friend. Most are crops and one is at infinity focus. All shot hand held from 15-20 feet distance except the cows. LOL f/5.6 and f/8.0.

Roy - seeing the framing there reminds me that you were looking into framing you own stuff.

How did it work out?

woks great,
i'm just using them for my pix.. all them are very simple black 3/4 x 1 1/2''.
i have 4 i need to finish now..
i think i'm going to stick with 8x12'' shots. that gives me 2 prints from 1 sheet of paper + matting at 12x16''..
what's good is i have practically any WW tool you can think of except a lathe..

Was that with the viv 200mm fixed mount Lens Roy? These are with the 200mm preset lens with a T-2 mount.

Yep. That is what I thought. I've got two of the M42 mount ones myself. These shots though are with the more "primitive" Preset 200mm.

"primitive" ???
I'll bet it has the same optical formula. i've really thought i'd love to see this lens with caotings.

With coating would improve their tendancy to flair as well as the CA.
