Vivitar Series 1 70-210mm f/2.8-4 Zoom Lens Pentax KA

i have a pentax k2000 and am looking to buy a lens to take pics at my son's hockey games. Someone told me to get a lens that is f2.8 70-200mm. Does anyone have afordable suggestions? I found Vivitar Series 1 70-210mm f/2.8-4 Zoom Lens Pentax KA/ for $160 but I don't know if that is a good price or not.

If you are interested in that lens, the following link should provide some help in figuring out which variant of the lens you want to buy: Vivitar 70-210 Series 1 Macro Zoom Lenses - Mark Roberts Photography

$160 seems rather expensive - which version is it (the link above will tell you how to figure that from the serial number)?

.

That sounds like the Komine-build 3-rd edition - basically the best of the bunch. It's a very sharp zoom, and I think they usually go for around $175 if they're in great shape.

Or it might be a Cosina 4th or 5th edition - only the serial number could tell for sure.
