Mine is the 67mm version mentioned in a previous review. Quality optics and metal construction. I have only used it outside in good light. I prefer the Canon FDn 70-210 f4 although some argue that the Vivitar has better IQ, and is slightly faster. Mine has a bit of an issue with lens creep despite the "locking" mechanism, but I find this less annoying in manual focus lenses. But I imagine it is an issue with more than just my copy, thus the "8.0" on build. I haven't checked prices in a while, but it is definitely worth owning if it is significantly cheaper than the FDn.
Overall, I love this lens and it hardly ever parts from my AE-1P :)
It has lovely image quality and nice bokeh. However, if you want to use this lens in low light conditions I would recommend looking around for something different because the viewfinder can get pretty dark when shooting indoors.
Purchased this lens second hand after reading a review on line. There are two versions of this lens. The first version that is considered the better one has a 67mm filter thread. The second one has a 72mm filter thread. This lens is the first one and is quite sharp. Renders colors nicely. Front coating is good but could still benefit from a lens hood. Overall, I am very pleased with this lens.
