Hoya HMC Zoom & Macro 70-210mm f/3.8 ?

I ordered a Pentax K200D today, so i'm looking through my junk for any old Pentax K-mount lenses I might have to try on it. I (re)discovered a Hoya 70-210 f/3.8 that I found at a thrift store back in 2002. It appears unused and was purchased in the original box/foam.

Anybody know anything about this lens and what sort of performance I might expect from it? The macro scale goes from 1/4 to 1/10.

Also, any tips for using this with a K200D would be appreciated. (I'm a newbie to Pentax & DSLRs)
