I received this lens for free with several screw mount lenses. This one is Pentax K mount, excellent condition, and feels well made. I'm just wondering what maker it is.

Anyone know?

Looks like a Tamron lens

It looks like it was made by CPC.

ok, thanks, I didn't realize "CPC" was a company name. I've since read that CPC was a subsidiary of Pentax, and the 35-70mm was sold as a kit lens with some Pentax bodies for a short time, though perhaps not in all markets.
