Not knowing what a "droid caller" was I took a quick skim through the first post of that thread there... all I can say is that some people have too much time on their hands!

For the record, I'm 99% sure that lens I the Quantaray 28-90. And yes, I hate that I can tell that.

Newmowa DLI90 battery with charger for Pentax K-01, K3, K5, K7. | eBay

Never opened - so how come an attempt has been made to remove corrosion from the terminals ?

And Bargain of the Week :

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/174980479708?hash=item28bda63adc%3Ag%3A8YAAAOSwWJ5g7Jh7&LH_Auction=1


Incidentally, same price as a Victorian commode from the same seller.

It’s a MZ 50, so it’s probably been non-functional for at least 15 years now. I prefer when people turn them into flower pots, but at least it didn’t immediately go in the landfill.
