    Some lenses rattle because of the long rod that runs from the mount down to the
    aperture blades. It doesn't mean it's broke.Try it, if it makes sharp pix, it's
    not broke. Bob Hickey

    I seem to recall from an earlier thread that a guy who is now one the
    world's experts in zoom lens design worked at the time for either Vivitar
    or Kiron (I think Vivitar). Might the lens of interest here be one of his
    designs? Anyone know?

    I have a page with some information about the various versions of this
    lens:
    http://www.robertstech.com/vivitar.htm

    It's not exactly comprehensive but you might find some useful
    information.

    How true. I have a 1980's vintage 200mm f/4.0 made by Cosina, of all
    people, that's really very good. (Also nice solid all-metal construction
    - a far cry from most of today's offerings.)
