This Vivitar Series-1 35-85mm F2.8 VMC Auto Variable Focusing zoom lens for Minolta MD mount is for sale because I have too many lenses that cover this focal range. Series-1 was Vivitar's line of premium lenses, similar to Tamron SP or Tokina AT-X. This lens is manufactured by Kino/Kiron in 1979. S/N 22904040.    - Housing: Marks and wear consistent with use and age. Please see photos.    - Mechanics: Zoom, focus, and aperture all operate smoothly. There is virtually no zoom creep.    - Optics: Clear. No fungus or layer separations. No visible scratches, but cannot rule out light marks that cannot be seen without magnification. Sample images are provided to demonstrate image quality. They are unedited except to add description and resize for upload.    - Solid build quality. Heavy. Made of primarily metal and glass components. Optics are multi-coated.    - Fast, constant F2.8 aperture.    - Reasonably sharp at F2.8. Very good at F5.6. Real-world performance exceeds expectations.    - Great contrast and color. Smooth gradations with good detail.    - Features beautiful bubble bokeh and a soft "glow", with a mild soft-focus effect when shot wide open.    - The glow and bubble bokeh vanish when stopped down.    - Makes a wonderful portrait lens when zoomed in.    - At 35mm, it can focus down to about 4 inches (10 cm).    - At 85mm it can focus to about 2.5 feet (76 cm).
