    Up for sale is the legendary (for sure a "cult lens") Kiron macro.

    This is the same lens as the Vivitar 100mm f/2.5 and the Kiron 105mm f/2.8

    Price: $190 shipped and pp'd to ConUS

    Condition wise: Normal amount of dust for a lens this age and size, focus and aperture operate perfectly, no oil on the blades, a pretty fair amount of cleaning
    marks on the front element (NO EFFECT ON IQ!)

    Now, the only question you should be asking: How is it?

    Answer: It's FU3#@!ing awesome!

    All taken handheld with EP-2:
