I don't actually have a need for this 28mm f/2 lens other than getting a little bit more light for doing some night sky time lapses. But if it is in good shape I'll probably buy it.

I assume that's a typo and you meant 24mm... there are Kiron and Komine 28mm f/2 Vivitars as well, with vaguely comparable but maybe slightly better performance.

Yes that was a typo. I am looking at a 24mm f/2.

Night sky shots wide open will do somewhat evil things to the stars near the corners, but that's not a big problem if you're doing star trails rather than wanting crisp points.

Turns out the seller is an hour away so I have to set that up.

Always better if you can test the lens before buying. I usually haven't had that luxury.
