    Vivitar Series 1 28mm f/1.9 VMC Auto Wide Angle for Pentax (or other) M42 mount.

    This is reputed to be an outstanding lens, and due to the wide focal length that will allow a '30 shutter to be used hand held (according to the classic rule of thumb), it has as much light gathering ability as a 50mm f/1.4 lens. A lens of this focal length and speed is the perfect wide-angle companion to your 50mm 1.4.

    Extremely clean glass, super clean barrel. Original Series 1 slip on lens cap. No hood. 58mm filters.

    One area of slight stiffness when focus is racked toward infinity.

    Don't want to sell this, as I haven't got to use it yet, but I have a Canon 28mm f/2.0, and this would help cover a recent camera purchase.

    Asking $200 U.S.

    Bump. No one at $one fiddy? It is more than worth it, from what I hear about this lens' image quality. Any offers? Trades?

    Sorry, but that does not sound like a good trade from my end of it.

    I do not have a 19 mm f/1.9, and I am not sure if such a lens ever existed. This is a 28 mm f/1.9.

    Sorry!

    Sorry, I keep writing it down as 19mm f1.9, when I know it is a 28mm, f/1.9.

    Do you still have it for sale? What would shipping cost to Michigan? Would you accept Paypal (if not, then what?)

    Could you send me some pictures? john00443322 (at) yahoo (dot) com

    Thanks.
