I'm fairly sure I have one of these; I found this thread via Google, because I was curious about the lens, which I have just hacksawed so that it will mount properly on a Canon 5D with a PK-EOS adapter.

My copy has 35-70mm 1:35-4.8 written on the front rather than 3.5-4.6, and I can't find anything about it on the internet either. It has a macro scale, although it's not very macro. I surmise it was a kit lens. I got it free with a Pentax P30, which came with a longer Tokina zoom lens (70-135mm or similar) as a set.

I've mounted it on my Canon 5D, which is probably heresy in this forum, but then again it's a kit zoom from the 1980s. The build quality is nonetheless much better than modern kit zooms - metal and rubber, with a snappy aperture and a smooth zooming motion. It zooms outwards to 35mm, inwards to 70mm. Optically it seems to have nothing wrong with it, but I haven't really tested it yet. The mount is very silver, almost like a mirror.

The reason I bought a PK-EOS adapter is because I am curious about the various odd 55mm f1.2 lenses out there, e.g. the Revuenon and Cosina and Porst 55mm f1.2s, but that's another thread (quite literally so in this case).
