This weekend was packed again,
didn't even have time to go out with my camera,
just sat an hour in the garden to wind down a bit,
and had the chance to play a bit more with the vivitar.

all at f3.5 and 210mm










hope you liked them - Ronny

very nice ron. isn't it amazing what a 30+ year old lens can do? i sold my komine copy not long ago. i've still got the A70-210 tho. i found it to be a tad sharper but i think the vivitar may have been a littlebettercontrast. does this one have the VMC coatings??

Thanks Roger,

Thanks Roy, it's just incredible that this quality of lenses are still usable,
don't know if it has the vmc coatings, but the quality of the finishing is still superb.

For as far as I've read the Komine version you had was better in the edges and had an A setting, but those old lenses are just fun to use.
