Vivitar 28mm f2.5
My copy of this lens was Kiron made with a 62mm filter size. Kiron make Vivitars are usually
very sharp and this lens fits that description. If the serial # starts with 22 it is a Kiron.
I am impressed with the image quality of this little gem. It is sharp at 2.5 and razor sharp at f5.6.
Color rendition is accurate. Colors are rich and separated well.
Bokeh is surprisingly smooth. Bokeh fringing is minimal.
Chromatic aberrations are well controlled.
Contrast is excellent. Micro contrast is surprisingly good.
Images have a 3 dimensional feel which makes this a good choice for street photography.
This lens also produces nice b/w images. See pic below. No effects were used.
Vivitar 28mm 2.5's regularly sell for $25 to $40. It is a bargain. Make sure you by one made by Kiron or Tokina. The Tokina version is also a very good lens.
