Tamron 80-210 f4.5

Does anyone know anything about this lens? It is being offered very cheap in some places and is also referred as "the Tamron/Pentax 80-210"...???

Does anyone have it & what do you think of it?

Can someone enlighten me please.

If it is the 80-210mm f/4.5-5.6, modell 278D it's a decent lens. I used to have one of these, but that was back in the film days. If you get it chead enough < $50 I'd say it's worth it and make sure you get the hood that should be included.
