I have the original 70–210 which has stayed on my film bodies,
The Pentax-F 70-210? I used it for almost a year as my 70-210 lens. I think you will find it does quite well. Noisy of course and the color rendering is quite different than modern lenses but I have some nice pictures taken with it. It is certainly a lot smaller than any of the modern alternatives
