This is a Vivitar 75-205 f/3.8 lens that came with a Minolta MC/MD mount on it.
I took the mount off an old Sears lens then machined it to replace the Minolta mount. How do you like my Peanuts lens?? LOL This lens doesn't look like it was ever put on a camera. Brand spanking new. Thanks to the man that sold it to me "For Peanuts". I mean that too...Thank you.

you're more than welcome dawg..
as i said, this is a real sleeper lens, especially in someones hands that know how to use it. i've gotten quite a few old lenses and asked myself, has this been in box forever????

Now that is a sharp lens.

What it is to have talent with your hands.

You really need to do a sideline in lens mods, I'm sure plenty of people here would snap (no pun intended) up some of your creations.

Those are so nice and sharp!..I think you got a heck of a deal with that lens and your talent for "McGivering" has made it a better lens..:-)
