I belive that is the lens I just piced up from B&H for $99. Oh well. it was well worth the money spent as it was exactly what I was looking for.

For $29 I hope someone from here picks it up, its a great lens

Another push-pull zoom which hasn't been mentioned is the SMC M 80-200/f4.5. I picked one up recently in a bundle of stuff I bought--got 2 MV-1 bodies, 2 AF220T flashes, a K 30/2.8 plus the 80-200 and a few other filters and gizmos for $100 CDN.

I find the lens to be quite good, actually and it's a joy to use. The focusing and zooming is so smooth and positive. Why can't they make lenses like this today?

Sample image below is from my K20D @ 180mm. No PP except for resizing for web...

Since you guys have so recommended it, I could not resist.
Will post pics once I get it and figure out how to remove the Ricoh pin.
