Item details

This listing is for a Vivitar tele-zoom 85-205mm f/3.8 lens for *minolta* cameras. The lens is used, but *optically mint* as I like my own lenses ;)

It does incorporate a handy collapsible black hood.
A great looking/bang for your buck lens that will serve beginners in film photography for a long time! :)

It covers the full frame (35mm) image circle and can be adapted to any DSLRs/mirrorless using the proper adapter. I recommend any adapter from K&F concept form personal experience should you want to adapt this lens, which will indeed become entirely manual after the fact. Please note that focus at infinity is *not guaranteed* and may require you to perform calibration on the adapting unit of your choice.
