The following is some information on the lens:
In 1975 Vivitar introduced the "Series One" line of lenses. They were intended to compete with the best offerings of the major camera manufacturers, -- they were quite expensive even by OEM standards. Nonetheless, discriminating photographers (who could afford it) snapped them up, and they are still much sought-after by photographers willing to give up auto focus in return for outstanding optics, with great construction and versatility.
The most famous of the Series One lenses was the 70-210 macro zoom. One of the first zooms to offer any kind of macro capability; it offered outstanding optics in a highly versatile package.
