I'm just new to this forum, and I follow your discussion with much interest (hope I did get everything !)
the fact is I got 4 of this 200mm : (I wanted to compare them)
- Pentax 200 f4
- Autorevuenon 200 f3,5
- Pentacon 200 f4 (M42)
- Vivitar 200 f3,5 (M42)

and well, frankly I don't see much differences between them.
If you're interested i can take some sample so you can compare too

I like the f3,5 of the autorevuenon, but the pentax is a bit smaller (and looks nicer ! )
a good thing: both of them got a hood included and are very handy to focus with.

regarding the M42 lenses both of them are .. how do you say .."free aperture", meaning the aperture ring is at the far end of the lens and there's no notch, wich I like very much.
my preference will go to the pentacon, though it stops at f4, but it feels more solid.

oh, and I don't know your level of 'sheapness' but the most expensive lense was less than 65 euros (the pentax not surprisingly)

Very interesting.
Post here some photos and 100% crops.
I really think that 200mm and 135mm lenses for Pentax is endless theme.
And as for Pentax lenses I mean new lenses. But some old SMC lenses are also pricey, but almost always they are very good.

Porst 200mm 1:3.5

I have just bought this lens on eBay. I don't know if anybody is interested in galvanizing life into this topic, but I will send some pics taken with my K-01 once I got the lens. I have asked a friend of mine about this one, and he said that its quality can be compared to Canon 70-200IS USM I. I have not heard about the latter lens, but then I found out that the Canon was an extremely good AND pricey one. While mine was €57.
We'll see.
