Vivitar M42 Universal Screw Mount (USM) 85-205mm F/3.8 Prime Tele Photo Lens with Both Caps - For Pentax or USM Cameras


Here we have a Vivitar M42 USM 85-205mm F/3.8 fast prime telephoto lens for Pentax cameras or any USM camera. It is in great shape and is fully functional. Though it does not impact image quality, this item is being sold at a discount due to light haze on the glass elements.

This lens is in excellent condition both cosmetically and mechanically. The body is in great shape, with no damage or worn paint, and the painted engraved numbers are without issue and highly legible.

The glass elements are free of fungus, balsam separation, scratches, and cleaning marks. The aperture blades are free of oil and actuate perfectly. The focus ring spins nicely, and the aperture ring clicks into its detents with precision.

This telephoto lens offers incredible sharpness when stopped down, and produces amazing bokeh and subject isolation when shot wide open. The fast aperture allows for excellent low-light capability, and the lens is a master at available-light portraiture.

Naturally able to mount to any M42 screw mount camera, such as those made by Pentax, Practica, etc. Additionally, this lens can easily be adapted to modern digital cameras through the use of inexpensive adapters. If you'd like to know if this lens will work with your camera or you'd like a recommended adapter, contact me and I will happily help.

This lens will be shipped immediately and packaged securely.
