Vivitar Series 1 135mm 2.3

What is the fair value for the above lens in mint original condition. The lens was purchased in 1975 and has not been used in the last 35 years. Is this lens any good and can it be used in newer Pentax DSLR, if it helps it was used with a Fujica ST 701.
Thanks Ross

Interesting, not in the lens database. A few years ago, I thought I might pick one of these up for $200 but I never saw one sell that low. It is supposed to be a very nice lens. They aren't too common so you might not find many recent sales. From a Pentax point of view, the K135/2.5 is only a tiny bit slower, so it might be a hard sell to ask much over the going K135/2.5 price. However, the lens can be adapted for use on many other systems, not just Pentax.

Thanks for your reply Just1MoreDave.
I have no use for the lens, so I just wanted to get some idea of it's value. Would I be out of line asking $200 for it.
