Very well built

Very well placed preset aperture ring

Compact, about 1/2 size of the Solitgor 105mm 2.8 Tele-auto



Grease in the focusing mechanism of this lens and its clones turns into cement, focus ring get stuck dead! Very common problem. 

Make sure it moves before bying online!


My other than focus pristine 10-blades copy was made by Tokina (H4** ser.#).Chubby almost square (h = 54mm w/o the thread, 60mm total, d = 54mm). Feels "dense", will be nose heavy on MIRRORLES WITH AN ADAPTER.

A guy on EBAy complained about completely stuck focus ring on Vivitar 8-blades version.
