    Vivitar 28mm f/2 Auto Wide-Angle (Kino/ Kiron Made)
    Make sure to use a lens hood, this lens is a flare magnet!

    This pic illustrate how bad the flares are if you don't have a lens hood on. However it does have an unique character if used it wisely.:smile:

    Has anyone tried to repair one of these? I've got one (Kino/Kiron version) with a stuck aperture; and the docs (Page 8) say that removing the front will affect the sharpness and requires re-calibration.

    Hi, I think the rear is tapered so there may not be room. I'll look again.

    @genesimmons@genesimmons, mine is not the close focusing version, unfortunately.
