Promaster MC Auto 35-105mm f3.5

Any idea about this zoom? Is it same as Pentax A 35-105mm f3.5?

It is unlikely that they are the same lens. Most Promaster share common parentage with Tamron or Sigma models, though it is possible it was made by CPC a Pentax subsidiary that made the Cosmicar and Takumar-bayonet lenses. As with most no-name consumer zooms, if the lens is cheap and in good condition, it might be worth buying. If it is not cheap or not in good condition, leave it be.

I did a little Google work and the only Promaster 35-105/3.5 zooms I could find were auto-focus lenses and not at all similar to the Pentax-A 35-105/3.5. Hope this helps.
