Thanks guys. I didn't think it would be quick and easy.

Contacted the seller and she will refund in full. As I got it cheap, I wasn't too worried - just annoying to get something like that.

Serial no is 22141320

darren,
it's a shame. that's a really nice kiron/vivitar.
here's some test shots i made when i sold mine. it also came with the matched 2x TC. i got it for 16bucks deliveredand turned it for 50. almost wish i'd kept it but i had the range covered with 2 other lenses.
HERE
these are right out of the cam. a tad soft but usm really brings them out.

Well, the upshot was I decided I couldn't be bothered packaging it up and going to the post office, soon the way out today I stopped at the local cheap camera shop, and there in the window was a Vivitar 70-210mm lens. Half the size of the other one and it is a PK-A mount. I have found that the PK lens do not work properly on the K10D - no stopping down unless you only half mount the lens.

So I bought it - was £39 reduced to £25.

Took it to the beach to test, and very impressed. So sharp.

Vivitar Macro Focusing Zoom, MC, 4.5-5.6. No. 09905990

Few pics posted in a separate thread.
