Yes, that's a Komine. I have 2 of these which I think I paid less than $20 for each. The one has very minor cleaning marks in the coating on the front element that you can only see when you get a strong reflection off of it, but it has no affect in it's outstanding performance. Other than that, they are both in excellent condition

It is certainly a very well built lens. Mine has the 8 blade aperture and is also in excellent condition. Wide open it is a little soft but at ƒ/4 and above it gives a good result. I only have the one—my other 135mm is the Carl Zeiss Sonnar 135mm ƒ/3.5.  I often prefer the rendering of the Zeiss, depending on the type of shot, and it focuses a bit closer but the Vivitar is lighter, better built and I think even a little easier to use.
