Well, to be accurate, Vivitar never actually made a lens. They were all "ghost built", sometimes very well - sometimes not so much. I have a Vivitar 28mm f/2 that's quite nice and was well made by Kiron. I also have seen pure pop bottles sold as Vivitar lenses.

Komine-made lenses also seem more highly regarded. I bought a Komine-made 135/2.8. It's real soft at f2.8, almost unusable. It's pretty sharp at f4. I think that would be pretty much the same regardless of which camera it was on.
