Pentax SMC-K 200/4?

Hi all,

I checked the lens review data base but found nothing on this lens. I know that it's an old manual lens from the 70'ies but what about optical quality? I'm about to close a deal on a 200/4 in good condition.

Best regards and TIA!

Have a look here. Comments indicate it is a sharp contrasty lens, but heavier than the later M-series 200/4 Stan's Pentax Photography

Technical details here K 200/4

pschlute, thanks. The key words here are 'sharp' and 'contrasty', who cares about weight The first link was especially interesting, good info there. I was aware of the dimitrov site.

Looks like I'll bite on the SMCP-K 200/4...this will get me a setup of DA 18-55 for general stuf, FA 50/1.4 for lowlight and portraits, Voigtlander 125/2.5 for macro and medium tele and K 200/4 (plus Sigma 1.4 TC) for long tele.

Best regards,
Boucicaut
