Vivitar 24mm f/2.8 for Pentax?

I just ordered this lens and can't wait to have it.
Does anyone have experience with this lens?

Cheers.

After a year, I found your post. I don't know if you have what I have. Vivitar 24mm f2/8 and the serial number starts with 99 and you can see more of my thoughts and pictures in these blog posts

It turns out the Voe's copy was returned to seller due to fungus. Here are few test shots taken wide open in f/2.8 with K10D & K100D

There are many different versions of this lens, some f/2, but mostly f/2.8. The latest version is probably made by Cosina. I would say most of the versions made over the years (mostly by Tokina, Kino Precision or Cosina) are generally above average optically.
