Was this Ebay item a good deal?

I didn't bid on this lense, but am interested in a low cost 28mm f2.8 lense - manual focus only, and auto aperture support for the k100d.

Was this a good deal? Does it suppport auto exposure in Pentax DSLR?

Descrition:

"This is a Samyang 28mm f2.8 lens in MINT Condition. It is Multicoated in like-new condition. Hardly used no scratches or flaws that I can find. Fits a Pentax K1000 camera or equivalent..."

It went for $11 + shipping. At that cost, you could throw it away if you didn't like it.

I'm not familiar with the brand. So I can't tell you if it is a quality piece or not.

There appears to be a button on the aperture ring which might indicate it has Auto aperture capability.

What I would be very careful of, however, is the "KR" marking on the lens barrel. If that indicates a Ricoch/K mount, then there may be some compatibility issues. Some of the manual focus Ricoch (K/R) mount lenses have an extra pin in the mount that has a nasty habit of getting stuck in the A/F drive socket in the camera body, and the lens becomes a real pain to get off.

It's not a big deal if you know about it. It doesn't do anything on the Pentax bodies, so I just epoxied it inside the lens mount, or you could just cut it off.
