condition: excellent
make / manufacturer: Vivitar
model name / number: AUTO TELEPHOTO 200mm 1:3.5
I have an AUTO Vivitar 200mm f3.5 lens for sale. This lens is from the mid 1970s, has a built in tripod collar, extendable hood, and replaceable M42 (screw) mount. According to pentaxforums.com (a great resource to find info about some of these old, obscure lenses), this model was built by Tokina. It was originally purchased by my dad in the 70s and has passed to me. While his Pentax Spotmatic has seized up and ceased to function, this lens is in beautiful shape with responsive aperture blades and a firm focus ring. I've tried using it on my Fujifilm camera and while I found it was plenty sharp, it is heavy and it is not suited for more fast paced photography as autofocus lenses are.
