I found this vintage Vivitar pamphlet for sale on Ebay and thought I'd pass it on. Is this lens any good? It certainly looks useful.

(PS. I'm Joking...I thought the advertising alone was worth bringing to your attention!)

Outreagous advertising at 195mm Laughing

I believe this lens was sold in many brands and is quite common.

Indeed, extremely common and quite good too, very usable today.

Look for it also under Soligor, Hanimex, Panagor, Albinar, etc.

Heck, just search for "85-205mm" and you will get dozens in all mounts.

I love this lens, the quality is great and you can get it so cheaply!

I think it's made by Kiron.

The Vivitar versions are starting to creep up in price but you can find other less known brands for 5 on ebay. This is really a sleeper lens and one of the ones that taught me that not all old zoom lenses were useless, a common myth that seems to be circulated around the AF oriented forums!
