Anyone with comments on the Pentax F 35-135mm lens?

I found someone selling it, the aperture seems pretty good since it's 3.5-4.5 and it sounds like a good walkaround lens. There seems to be no information on this lens on the net though...

Anyone with any comments?

I'll try to help you. I bought this lens on a whim several years ago. The photo store was selling all its used gear for 50% off last sticker price.

It's actually a decent lens. Not as good as my FA28-105/3.2-4.5 (which is a very good lens) but it is better than I expected.

I use it as a walkabout lens in situations where I think my gear could get nicked. In the last year it hasn't been used. One of these days I'll have to get around to selling it.

The extra reach at 135mm is handy at times. The lens has a macro function which goes 1:4 at 135mm. The only downside thing to be aware of is the closest focus distance is about 3 or 3.5 feet.

In summary, worth picking up if the price is reasonable. Hope this helps.
