Vivitar 28-200 f3.5

Just picked up a Vivitar 28-200 f3.5,

Is it a keeper? I could not find a review on it.

Since you have the lens you could take some pictures to see if you like it or not.

Yes, I'm doing that today!

But I wanted other opinions also.

I found a few reviews through a google search.

I also picked one up today, for 20 and it's mint!

I've modified the shield ( hacksaw and file job ! )to allow it to mount on my K10 and it works a treat .

It's a heavy old thing, but it does feel "right", although it's been many years since I had a one touch, manual focus, zoom lens. But I've rattled off a few shots with it and I think it's a lens I'll keep.

There's a review on the Pentax forum at DP Review, and they rate it as a decent lens.
