Pk 28-70/2.8 ?

So what's the story on this lens, seems like it might have some strong appeal but it must be miserable to work with because this auction has just been sitting there.

eBay: Pentax PK Bayonet 35-70/2,8 AF ZOOM Boxed (item 280118241166 end time May-31-07 07:37:55 PDT)

Couldn't find much information on this one...

The autofocus will only work on the ME-F film camera.

This lens was Pentax's first attempt at AF. Since it only works on the ME F, consider it a manual lens...

Great! Thanks for the information, I was also able to find its entry on Wikipedia with the extra details. Pentax K mount - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
