Vivitar 200mm f3.5 m42 compatible with k200d

Does anyone know if the Vivitar 200mm f3.5 screw mount is compatible with the k200d? (I have an m42 adapter) Or if it's even a good lens? I don't have any tele primes yet and should probably start with something in my budget. I've heard that the older Vivitar lenses are decent quality, especially the first few generations of the Series 1's. I tried to find some reviews and look up who made the lens using the serial number but it's not on any cross reference list I've found. Serial number is 206801 thanks for your help

that is a funky serial number? i have a vivitar 200mm f3.5 with the more typical 28xxxx serial number, and it's not bad... i think i paid $25 for it?

get a factory pentax m42 adapter to mount that lens with, the aftermarket adapters are not good... then start shooting!

The serial number is strange - not listed here.

I had a Komine built Vivitar 200 f/3.5 that was excellent.

Review here.

I was just waiting for permission to post these pictures, which I have now received from White Glove. This lens looks different from the one in the above review. It also has a tripod mount. I should get it next week, so I'll be able to judge the quality for myself, but a little history on the lens would be nice too. White Glove said he believed it was a Kiron Lens but wasn't 100% sure.
