Thanks for the info; I had forgotten that Kiron = Vivitar Series 1. Those always had a good reputation.

I think the "Vivitar" tele zoom I just got for my Nikon FG is probably a Kiron. It is not branded "Series 1" but it has sure held up better than the cheaper Vivitars. It is a multi-coated, push-pull 75-205 f/3.8. (fixed) The images are better than I expected, pretty close to a good prime. (though it is a lot heavier than a 200 mm f/4 would be.
