Takumar-A 28mm f/2.8: is this a Pentax lens

Is the Takumar-A 28mm f/2.8 a different label for an equivalent Pentax lens, or has this nothing to do with it? Is it any good, or should I rather look for the genuine Pentax PK-A branded article?

The Takumar-A lenses are made by Pentax, but they're not multicoated. Since most manual lenses are pretty cheap nowadays, though, you might as well go for the SMC Pentax-A 28mm
