I had it--nice lens. Borders a bit soft wide open, but generally sharp, and with excellent colors and micro-contrast. I prefer to have AF with tele-lenses, but if you're ok with MF, it's a fine lens for cheap (that is, under $50).
It will work on your K-5 provided the lens had the K mount.

Why was the title of this thread "Mister"?

As long as the lens has the K-mount (i.e. it's a Pentax version), it'll work just fine.
