An interesting mix. There are some very nice looking crops mixed in with some real dogs. Not surprising really from my experience with Vivitar, I don't use any of the ones I own anymore. Then again I don't own any of the Series 1 examples.

Thanks for the post.

As with any collection...there are dogs to go with the gold.

That's part of the fun isn't it, never really knowing what you're getting?
