eBay - Kiron 28-85mm f2.8-3.8

Allright! this has to stop! (=_=') just bought another lens on ebay, and I have not yet received the adaptor to actually use these FD lenses yet. I cant wait though (>_<')

Kiron 28-85mm F2.8-3.8 MACRO Canon FD “Kino Precision”, UV, Caps, Case

So, I saw below deal from a Colorado seller who like most eBay.com sellers did not ship to Japan... but I convinced him to anyway ♥ 

A few specs:

Optical Construction: 14 elements/11 groups Multicoated
Accessory Size: 67mm
Angle of Acceptance: 74°-29°
Aperture Range:
@ 28mm: f2.8-f16
@ 85mm: f3.8-f22
Min. Focusing Distance from Film Plane: 0.26m (10.2 in)
Max. Reproduction Ratio: 1:4 @ 28mm
Length at Infinity Focus:
@ 28mm: 105mm (4.2 in)
@ 85mm: 120mm (4.8 in)
Barrel Diameter: 70mm (2.8 in)
Weight: 658g (1.45 lb)

So the lens itself was 40$ and the shipping only ran to 16.75$ so 56,75$ total for below lens. (⌒_⌒)b

This lens too is quite "vintage" I remember seeing a review from 1981 when I searched for reviews on the lens. The name "Kiron" is supposedly a cover name for "Vivitar" (?) Anyone with knowledge on this, please let me know in the comments. :)

Once I have the adaptor (should get here around the 8th Jan) I will make sample galleries for each of the -> used lenses <- I have bought and a followup on experiences with the lenses :) so stay tuned, and maybe grab the RSS feed ?

Here are a first few sample shots. They are all done handheld, but honestly the lens is very soft in my opinion, glad I only paid 40$ on eBay for it ʕु•̫͡•ʔु
