Picked up a couple of lenses for 35 Euro

but cant find any nfo about the lenses on the net. Has anyone got any experience of this lens Vivitar 80-200mm F4.5 auto zoom? Or Pentax F-zoom 28-80 3.5-4.5 non-SMC.

Are they dead bricks photographically or have i picked up a hidden gems? This is my first foray into the ambiguous world of maual and snatched the lenses because of the price tag

The Pentax-F is actually not manual, but has autofocus. Optically it is the same as the -A version. Stan's site has some user experience with those two lenses:
