    Vivitar lenses are cheaper lenses compared to the big players. Many of their lenses (most of them nowadays) are contract manufactured by factories all over the world. Similar to Rokinon, Opteka. That said, Vivitar has some gems. But you really have to know which are the gems among the stones.

    This definition is too simple to define a professional

    Any ah beng and ah seng can claim to be professional, by simply become full time photographer, just like those interior designer or artist or writer. Anyone can claim to be something.

    So u know how many of those interior designers out there? 1001 of them.

    My definition is the professional's work must be showcased and recognized by higher authorities, or had won some kind of international award and recognition.

    That's your definition, doesn't concern me at all. You define it your way and I define it mine. If they can make a living out of their works, it's speaks a lot about their standards.

    Just trying to tell readers to be careful of ppl who claim to be professionals.....
