    Of course, E-1 not included.

    This is a tested excellent copy of this lens. It does require practice to use (as with all long lenses), but once you've learned how, it is capable of quite good results.

    Due to its size and weight, it is definitely a tripod-only lens. Here is a sample taken with this lens:

    You can see feather details in the image that a lesser lens would not show. This sample was shot at 600mm (1200mm EFL).

    I was very happy with this lens when I bought it, but recently bought a Bigma so I don't need it anymore. If you are patient in learning long-lens techniques, I think you will be very happy with this lens.

    I paid $60 for this a couple of months ago and used it a couple of times with the Vivitar lens. It is the latest version that easily allows you to set an aperture, focal-length, and adjustments for front/back focusing errors.

    Programming it is actually quite easy, but it may take a few tries to learn how it is done. I will be providing instructions and will be available (if needed) to help teach how to set it.

    The adapter is well made and sits firmly on the lens and body.


    Combined price for both the Vivitar 120-600mm lens and AF-confirm adapter: $230 plus shipping and PayPal fees ($10 off).
