Thanks Ira. It is a very very good one, but the price for them is now going through the roof.

That's the problem with the Viv cult lenses - they are very good and have become so popular the prices have gotten out of hand. To the point where I think they now cost more than they are really worth. While I love my Viv 105, and at the time I bought it I couldn't afford a new lens, I don't think it's worth today's prices. If I were going to buy a lens now, I'd probably save my money and buy the Pentax WR.

I do agree there Harriet. It is so bad now that a common 90-230 T4 or TX lens can run over 50 dollars plus shipping and the TX-PK adapter can cost as much as the lens.. Not that it is a bad lens...but it is not worth the asking price at all. But then again as I only paid a small sum to get mine, I now have a rather large sum of money in my collection should I decide to start selling......That 1987 Super Magna motorcycle is now well within range and I don't need to sell my entire lens collection to get it!! LOL
