Hi,

I bought the vivitar 28mm Wide Anlge F2.0, FD mount to use with an adapter on my Samsung cameras.

Does any one knows if this lens is radioactive? There is a kind of yellow reflection on the front glass Or maybe I'm seeing things ...

Thank you

the lens is this one: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Canon-FD-mount-Vivitar-28mm-F2-Camera-Lens-for-Canon-FD/253052221397?hash=item3aeb1677d5:g:K3sAAOSwmoBZbpgS

Your lens is not listed at: https://camerapedia.fandom.com/wiki/Radioactive_lenses
[A very good starting-point regarding Radioactive Lenses].
For your convenience, I searched the site and copied all the radioactive Vivitar lenses
1. Vivitar Series 1 28mm f1.9
2. Tokina Wide-Auto (also applies to early Vivitar/Soligor auto wide: knurled metal focus ring) 35mm f/2.8 (serial 708205)
3. Vivitar Close Focusing Auto Zoom 75-205mm f/3.8 (early Kiron made version, two-ring zoom, serial 22616531)

The Canon 28mm F2.0 S.S.C. version is here:

All the best,
