Kiron 24mm f2.0

A few years ago, I found a very decent looking Kiron 24mm f2.0 lens in a thrift store.  I can't remember how much I paid for it but it was certainly less than $20.

I brought it home and tried it on my Sony a3000 camera (it's a Canon FD mount and I have numerous FD lenses from when I was still shooting film).  What a disappointment!  It would not focus   I tried a few things but then gave up and put it away for another time.

Well, time has gone by (maybe 4 years) and I was doing a bit of a clean-up this morning.  That prompted me to try again and I disassembled the front end and did some "fiddling"  (nothing to loose).  I'm really not sure what I might have done but, after reassembling and putting it on my Fuji X-T20, this is what I got with my first trial shot from our front door:

I am pretty pleased with what this lens seems to provide.... Does anyone else have experience with it or the Vivitar brand version made by Kiron?
