Heard of Vivitar 70-210mm f/4 AF ?

I just came across a Vivitar lens 70-210mm f/4 with autofocus....
But I couldn't find a review on this particular lens, neither in this forum nor elsewhere.
I found some similar lenses via wikipedia and other sources:
Vivitar Series 1 70-210mm f/2.8 (re-labeled Sigma)
Vivitar Series 1 70-210mm f/2.8-4.0
Vivitar Series 1 70-210mm f/2.8-4.0 APO
Vivitar 70-210mm f/4.5-5.6

... but none of them exactly fits.

Does someone know the lens I mention?
Would be great to have an idea whethor not its worth to buy it...
Thanks a lot.

Do not buy any AF Vivitar lenses. The only ones worth having are the older non AF versions marked Series 1.
