Re: 20mm age

I think the Vivitar 20/3.8 and 19/3.8 are different lenses. (This is confused by Cosina apparently having sold the Vivitar 19/3.8 as a Cosina 20/3.8.)

I'm now wondering if the Vivitar 19/3.8 is an evolution of their 21/3.8. Here is an image of the later:

It looks very similar to my 19/3.8 and also is listed as having 9 elements in 8 groups.

Regards,

Alan
