Tou/Fivestar 200 4.5

I know there isn't anything exciting about this lens, but just curious to know if anybody has an idea how good the lens is. Probably this -- https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/pentax-slr-lens-discussion/184062-tou-fiv...0mm-4-0-a.html -- is the only thread having mentions about this lens where it is stated that it is inferior to "Pentax K 200/4", which is not surprising at all.

I do not own one but may get a copy as part of a bundle.

Do you have any idea what it is or do you think it is not worth investigating?

That would depend upon how much the bundle is and whether the value of everything else drops the 200mm low enough to make it a 'gimme'. I just picked up a wierd branded 200mm off fleaBay for $15 including shipping. Thats cheap enough if the lens is a dud I won't shed any tears over it.

Yes, the bundle is worth even without this lens. So whether to get it or not the issue, but just curious to know what people have to say about this lens. Thank you Sagitta.

I guess you'll be the first to make a proper review
