Vivitar 85-205mm f/3.5 Auto Zoom Lens for Olympus O/OM Mount SLRs with Owner's Manual and Vivitar 'How to Photograph Auto Racing' Booklet


Vintage Vivitar 85-205mm f/3.5 Auto Zoom Lens
for Olympus O/OM Mount 35mm SLRs
Built-in Lens Hood

***It has not been tested recently either on
a film camera or digitally. I am selling it as
needing some internal cleaning and/or repair.

*Includes an 11-page Owner's Manual and a
Vivitar 'How to Photograph Auto Racing' Booklet -
18 pages of super cool pics and info.

*One Owner, Smoke and Pet Free Home*

This vintage Vivitar lens has been in
my collection since new. It's always been
a solid performer but I no longer own an
Olympus camera.

It covers a popular zoom range from portrait
to medium telephoto. It's set to mount directly
to your Olympus O/OM mount 35mm camera.
It can be adapted for use digitally with
the proper adapter.

The optics have some dust and haze that
can be seen internally. I do not see scratch
or cleaning marks on the outer lens surfaces.

The aperture blades are oil-free and snappy and
the aperture ring moves freely. The focus is smooth
and the zoom does not creep.

The lens body has some missing paint but otherwise
it's free from damage

Lens Specs - Focal Length 85-205mm, Aperture
Range f/3.8 - f/22, 13 Elements
in 9 Groups, Min Focus 1.93m, Weight 794g,
Accessory Filter Size 58mm.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does your shop offer combined shipping?

Yes and always! Just let us know and we'll work something out. No need to pay for shipping more than once.

Does your shop accept returns?

Yes but with some minor exceptions. If it was a custom made item we do not accept returns. Good communication before the sale will eliminate returns. Part two... we will gladly accept a returned item (within 14 days) as long as it is returned to us in the same condition as when we sent it to you. Let us know if you are returning something... maybe we can reach an agreement short of a full return. Part three... you will always pay for return shipping.

Will my purchase arrive well packaged?

Always! Carol and I take great care (and pride) in packaging your purchase. We always are mindful of being "green" but often times green doesn't protect your package properly. We have been shipping our items out safely since 2003. We must say however, that we are not responsible for gross mishandling by the carrier(s) or loss of an item. Valuable items will always have insurance added.

How can I contact your shop?

We are on Etsy almost everyday and the best way to get our attention is by starting an Etsy convo. We'll answer you quickly.

Does your shop ever do custom orders?

Yes we can... our shop and studios are super flexible. Just let us know what you're thinking and Carol can make it happen!

Does your shop accept a best offer?

We think we have everything properly priced but we are here to make a sale and keep our customers happy. Let us know if you want to make an offer on something. I'm sure we will find a way to reach an accord.
