Vivitar Varifocal 

Beautifully made and in mintish condition. The varifocal thing is a little 
annoying, though. I avoided them in film days, and I was right.

Still some bubbly lenses out there that are cheap!

(Well, not really. I think this is the last bubbler.)
Funny I recently acquired one and I remember there was quite a bit of 
discussion of this lens in the way past. Same conclusion, varifocal thing is 
annoying. I have not had time to check it out.

I hope my simple examples may give you some starting points.

Someone I follow on flickr, Dhina A, posts quite a selection of lenses, 
including this one.

Yup, I used her and Toby Marshall to look for good bubblers that haven't jumped 
up in price.

I like the frog.

He's been at loose ends since leaving a fountain, pleased in his new roll as model.
