There were a number of versions of this lens, here’s what I know so far:


#1 prior to 1968 -

#2 1969-70   Kino                         55mm filter 6 blade diaphragm metal grip

#3 1971-74? Komine 5 Element 55mm filter 8 blade diaphragm metal grip

#4 1974?-76 Komine 5 Element 55mm filter 8 blade diaphragm rubber grip

#5 1976-82? Komine 4 Element 55mm filter 6 blade diaphragm rubber grip*

#6 1984?       Cosina?**               52mm filter 6 blade diaphragm rubber grip


* From serial numbers #2863000

**I did believe that #6 was made by Komine but a test report I’ve seen recently said it was ‘Made in Korea’, (this rules out Komine).  These lenses have a non standard 6 digit serial number that does not contain the usual Vivitar makers code/year.
