Description

Vivitar 35-85mm f2.8 Series 1 VMC

Dust and slight haze inside, marks on front element coating that might have an effect on image quality. Comes with caps.
Vivitar 35-85mm f2.8 Series 1 VMC

Fast normal zoom for Minolta MD SLRs. Variable focusing means lens must be refocused after zooming, but optical quality exceeded most other zoom lenses of the era while retaining constant aperture.

  • Vivitar 35-85mm f2.8 Series 1 VMC Auto Variable Focusing (12 elements, 9 groups)
  • Minimum focus distance: 0.3m
  • 6 diaphragm blades
  • Size: 94 x 81mm
  • Weight 722g
  • Lens Optics

    Although minor dust and scratching won't affect image quality, major defects like haze, fungus, or separation cause decreased sharpness and contrast. We inspect every lens and provide cleaning & repair when appropriate. Otherwise, we clearly state any flaws in lens optics in our product descriptions.

  • Lens Mechanics

    Our skilled team of technicians also work diligently to ensure that our lenses have appropriately functioning mechanics. They test focal throw, zoom, aperture stop-down, filter threads, and all applicable electronic functions (like autofocus).

  • Infinity Focusing & Rangefinder Alignment

    Our collimator is used to simulate infinity focus for the purpose of ensuring lens alignment & focus at any distance. We also use a special high-contrast target board to ensure that rangefinders are properly aligned both vertically & horizontally.

  • Calibration & Repair

    Many lenses require extra work beyond testing & checking. Our mechanics are able to repair lens diaphragms, calibrate focus, adjust helicoids, and install spare or replacement parts as necessary.
