I have only recently acquired an N80 and a couple of Nikkors. For some 25 years, working with non-AF cameras, certain Vivitar Series 1 lenses were exceptionally good. I cite the 28mm f/1.9 and the 90mm f/2.5 Macro in particular. Shopping for a Nikon-friendly AF zoom I was advised by a very reputable dealer to 'forget it'. I was told that in recent years the once-impeccable Series 1 have all but disappeared and that Vivitar lenses as a whole were now very inferior. Can anyone shed some light on this? A company takeover perhaps?
