Pentax Takumar user reviews

I just acquired an Asahi Pentax Auto Takumar 1:5.6 200mm
To my surprise, I have seen tha this lens is missing from the list of the reviews.
The are the Takumar and Tele Takumar preset versions (together), but no mention of the "Auto".
If the optical design is the same, all three versions should be mentioned in the existing review.
If the design is different, a new entry should be made.
I already added a couple of reviews of third party lenses that had no previous entry. If I test this new Takumar long enough to write a review, I would like to have a place where I can enter it.
Best Regards

Could you post some photos of the lens? I will investigate and update the DB as appropriate. Seems like this variant isn't present in any literature I've come across, so it could be a rare find!

Sorry, sorry, sorry.
The vendor described it as "Auto Takumar". Just got the pictures: it seems that the word "Auto" is nowhere to be seen on the lens!
The beauty ring is engraved as such: Asahi Op. Co. Takumar 1:5.6/200 (serial starting with 95).
I should have waited and checked the pictures before sending my dumb message.
I goofed
