Vivitar Series 1 200mm f/3.0

(2 customer reviews)

The lens is made up of 13 glass elements in 12 groups, which helps to produce high-quality images. It has a multi-coating on the glass to reduce glare and improve contrast. The lens was manufactured in the 1980s, but it is still a popular choice for photographers today. The aperture can be adjusted from f/3.0 to f/22, giving the photographer control over the amount of light that enters the lens. The build quality is solid, with a metal body that feels sturdy in the hand. The lens produces beautiful bokeh, which is the aesthetic quality of the out-of-focus areas of an image. This lens is a manual focus lens, which means that the photographer must adjust the focus by hand. However, this can be an advantage for some photographers who want more control over their images. The lens produces sharp and detailed images, making it a great choice for portrait, wildlife, and sports photography. Overall, the Vivitar Series 1 200mm f/3.0 lens is a high-quality, reliable, and versatile lens that is still a great choice for photographers today.
