Vivitar Series 1 90-180/4.5 Flat Field Zoom - famous, complex and heavy zoom with macro up to 1:2.




Sony A7R, no post-processing besides resizing:

I have this lens and like it a lot. It is heavy though and for best results needs to be used on a tripod.

I used to own a copy of this lens and was talked into selling it. I didn't want to but the guy was offering me more money than it was worth, so I gave in, figuring I'd get another one day.

I never have, and now I don't really need to. I have macro lenses in 90mm, 100mm, 135mm, and 200mm focal lengths. All of these macros are at least as sharp as that old Vivitar zoom, probably sharper, plus they each weigh a LOT less. So even though I'd still like to own a copy, it would be more for the desire to own another desirable S1 zoom than for any other reason.
