    I've just bought this:
    VIVITAR 70-210mm f4.5 Macro zoom lens on eBay (end time 08-Jan-11 15:45:29 GMT)

    on Ebay for £3.20! I can find a few mentions of a VIVITAR 70-210mm f4.5 on the net but nothing which is definitely this version.
    I mainly wonder what the fitting is and what the required adaptor, if one exists, for a m43 is. Obviously I'll know more when I get it, but just wondered if anyone had any idea?

    It says for Olympus OM (Film Cameras)
    There are adapters for OM>m4/3 out there too...

    Thanks.
    Where does it say it is an OM fit?

  4. If the seller is correct in saying it is an Olympus fit it has to be OM. The OM mount is the only Olympus mount Vivitar would have made lenses for.

    I've got one, but haven't used it much, as it's a bit long for the kind of things I shoot. Seems to be a decent lens from the shots I've done.

    Definitely a bargain for you anyway!

    All the best,
