Vivitar 85-205 f3.8 Macro Zoom Lens - Any good?
Jun 25, 2013

Hello photographers.

I recently found a Vivitar 85-205 f3.8 Macro Zoom Lens on ebay for 10 bucks, and I took the liberty of buying it because I wanted to get something to entertain me.

The seller appears to know a little something about photography, they said they used it themselves on nikon cameras, and he even provided a little sample photo. Doesn't have fungus or bugs or undiscovered life forms on the inside...

This is the lens on ebay, pictures of it there.

I couldn't find much if any information on this specific lens, except for a little video of someone using it on a canon camera.

Any info and is it a good buy? (I just want to take pictures for fun, thats all)
