    </br>Description</br> In the spirit of "txbskt" I'm passing on a Series-1 Kiron/Vivitar 70-210 f3.5 Macro. This "beer can" takes pretty sharp and pleasing images. It does appear to have a little something on the inner element. It is MC/MD mount. Adapter not included. I'm unsure of shipping costs, but it is heavy and large. Just Paypal gift me and I'll send it.

    These were both taken with this lens/ handheld.

    Very generous of you Big John. So what does a beer can lens look like?

    Gary

    (PS- Actually, I believe it was Allen Roseman who first started giving away lenses on ยต4/3. Just giving credit where credit is due.)

    Gary, I wasn't aware of the him doing it first. The beer can looks like this ( next to a minolta 50mm f1.4). I'd say it is more of a "tall" than a regular beer! Maybe even a "40".:eek:

    Yeah, that's a tall. Alan, who for some bizarre reason, maybe abducted by aliens, is no longer with us. But he was a mod and a great participating member and was the first to start giving away lenses. A few have followed his lead. I doubt that txbskt is aware of Alan or any of previous action of generosity. So kudos to him and you as well.
