Pentax 70-200mm f4-5.6 AF Zoom ?

There is a cheap lens on sale, Pentax 70-200mm f4-5.6 AF Zoom. Does it exist?

It has a label PENTAX-F ZOOM on it, and it does not look like the FA version.
I seem to have seen one on ebay some years ago too, was there both the F 70-210/4-5.6 ED and the 70-200mm available in F-series?

Compared to the F 70-210/4-5.6 ED on Bojidars pentax lens page, the Pentax 70-200mm f4-5.6 AF Zoom has the numbers on the aperture ring ALL IN GREEN DIGITS.

On the pic of the Pentax 70-200mm f4-5.6 AF Zoom I could not be 100% sure of the 200 or 210 marking.

Yes is does exist, it is a version with no SMC. There is another one like it called Takumar F. You should find it in the lens section under Pentax lenses - non smc zooms.

Thanks! I never guessed that an AF lens would be without SMC.
The reviews were decent. For 20 it is a bargain, but I think I 'll pass.
