Just won this lens on eBay, anyone know anything about it? Because I sure don't
Sears re-branded and sold lenses for a while. I can't remember who manufactured them....maybe it was Vivitar :scratch:
How much did you get it for?
Won it on eBay last night while looking for an inexpensive lens for my upcoming 'The World Through One Lens' project I plan on doing here, or perhaps with Chase Jarvis if he responds to my idea.
I liked that it has a hard case with it, it should help it survive its many travels from one photographer to another.
Now to work on the web Interface to make this project work...
Gotta love Chase would be cool though if he did respond to it.
Sure would... I think the project would have a fighting chance with someone as popular and creative as him backing it.
IIRC, Sears lenses were frequently Ricoh. However, they rebranded brands than that, I believe.
What brand camera will this lens fit on? Pentax?
Looks like a Nikon lens.
Sounds like a very interesting idea. Since it is a Nikon lens, could even pick some adapters so it can be used on other bodies - Canon, Pentax, Sony / Minolta. The adapters would be more than he paid for the lens. Maybe some people have the adpters and are not using them and can donat them for the project. :thumbup:
Could be Pentax K mount
Nikon mount, it's the one currently in the world through one crappy lens project.
