Can also be used with a wide range of other mainstream brands of film and digital systems (both SLR & mirrorless) with an appropriate adapter.

f Stop Ring

Generally in Excellent condition but let down a little by one blemish on the lens hood - as can be seen on the 3rd photo.


Front & Rear Caps


·        An simple 'google' of "Vivitar 135 f/2.8" will generate a great deal of information about this lens. Importantly this is a Version 3 of the Komine manufactured lens - the best of this series of lenses and a very good lens indeed and it is in very good condition.

·        This is a high quality ‘mid range’ lens for Film or Full Frame digital and at 200mm equivalent (approximately) on APS-C system cameras it is a "fast" long range lens.

·        It is easy to understand why such a lens might be popular with fans of the Micro 4/3 and other mirrorless systems – with an adapter of course. It provides a compact 270 mm equivalent lens (approximately) on any of these systems.

·        You will find a review of the Vivitar 135mm f/2.8, at -

·        See for one range of adapters – which are available in the UK via Amazon.

·        I would be happy to provide photos taken with this lens using my Nikon D7100.
