Opinions on a couple M42s...

Today I went on a tiny eBay spending spree (damn LBA!) and picked up two M42 lenses for my new Spotmatic (and presumably for the K20D once I pick up an adapter). They are:

Vivitar 75-260mm f/4.5
Vivitar 200mm f/3.5

Anyone have experience with these two? How do they perform? Test shots?

(I believe the 200mm is the Komine version, not the Tokina.)
