    Please do not laugh at me - -

    - - I just bought two Sears branded lenses off e-bay, a 80-200/f4.0 & a 135/f2.8 prime both for $52 including shipping. I should be able to check them out in a couple weeks.

    My prize purchase today on e-bay is a Vivitar Series 1, version 2, 70-210 f3.5 for $78 with shipping. Now that one I cannot wait to test out on my G1.

    Looks likely the Sears 80-200 f4.0 is surplus before I even get it.

    Ron, I would not rule out the Sears (it could be Pentax badged Sears, btw) over the Vivitar.

    Vivitar Series 1 lenses are HEAVY.

    That is a feather weight. Should be nice to start with.

    Don't go near the 90-180/4.5 Macro.
