Pentax K mount IMPERIAL AUTO 80 - 200 mm F 4.5 zoom Lens

I saw this lens in Ebay priced at USD 35. Tried searching on the net, but could not get any information on this.

Is this a good lens and is the quoted price ok

There are many off-brand 80-200mm f4.5 zooms out there, I know Tokina, Kobori and Kiron all made them and they were sold under many different brand names. I've never seen anything with an Imperial branding before, it was likely a store brand.

If you can find another one that looks exactly like it under another brand you might be able to find more information on it. If you find a Vivitar branded one you can find the manufacturer by the first 2 digits of the serial number.
