Default Vivitar 135mm f/2.8 fixed mount Komine made lens.

Not the best outside condition as the letters have started to yellow. But it is in excellent shooting condition. Shown side by side with a Tokina made 135mm f/3.5 fixed mount lens in M42. The Tokina is on the left and has the larger focus ring and the lens shade fits closer to the focus ring when retracted.

I have one of those, mine is a Komine from September 1975 I believe.

A pretty good lens as were most of those early Vivitars.

Hi Phil. Yes the Komine, Tokina and the Kiron versions are all very sharp with great color rendition. To me all three are just about interchangeable with my Super Takumar 135's.

Hi Dawg, how are you keeping? I have a very similar Viv (Komine) M42 135mm F2.8 same as yours but has cross hatched pattern on rubber. Pristine condition and cost very little.
Cheers
