    Picked one of these up at a local thrift store in mint condition for $9. I ran the numbers and it was made by Kiron in 1978. Here's a quick test picture snapped at 1600 iso at f4.5.

    Slightly noisy but not too bad for 1600 iso.

    Great find! The Kiron made Vivitars are well sought-after lenses.

    Really? It seems decently sharp but I couldn't find a lot of information about it.
