Vivitar 200mm f4 Auto PK lens - any info?

I just picked up (arrived today) one of these for the very low price of $5 but I cannot find any info about it on the 'net. Even the Wiki Vivitar - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia doesn't mention it. It's not in the lens database on this forum.

Does anyone know anything about them?

I'll try to take some pix over the next couple of days.

Thank you. Looking at your pics, I have high hopes for mine despite that the shipping parcel was destroyed in the USPS mail system. I shall have to take some pix of the lens to add it to the database.

Added to the database.

In pics below, first, lens hood retracted and second, extended.

Hmm, images are a bit big!

Some decent pics yet to be taken but here is a photo taken down my street to the school just on 300 metres away. One the electricity pole is a sign giving the street name (Emerald St).

The two crops are firstly from my new DA* 60-250mm F4 lens set at 200mm and secondly is from the Vivitar 200mm F4.

A couple more for comparison. Not the same pylon though. Both pics are exports from Picasa at 1024 pixels width.

First pic is the $1,100 DA*60-250mm F4 at 250mm and the second the $5 Vivitar 200mm.
