    In AP Nov 27 was a feature on Secondhand lenses.
    One I remember was a Vivitar 90mm 2.5 macro.At first I though it was the `plastic fantastic`Cosina,also sometimes badged as Vivitar but that`s 100mm 3.5.
    I`d not heard of it before and wonder where I can get one in Sony/Minolta A mount.

    Cheers :D

    Vivitar 90mm f/2.8 Macro 1:1 (Komine)
    Vivitar 100mm f/2.8 Macro 1:1 (Kiron)
    Vivitar Series 1 105mm f/2.5 Macro 1:1 (Kiron)
