Is this an AF lens? Do you know if this works well with a K100D? I'm new to Pentax DSLRs... but I'm also local in San Jose too.

Thanks!

There are various versions by different manufacturers. The best three are:
None of the Vivitar Series 1 zoom in 70-210mm are AF and they are all manual focus to the best of my knowledge. And given the information from the seller, I can't say if the lens is the Komine version. I am betting it is not, as there are version4, 5, 6 that have f/2.8 as the maximum apertures in the 70mm end. Renowned Mark Robert's report with recommendation the first three versions are here

The seller mentions it's the QDOS version, which would be version 5.

Sorry for the slow reponse. This is not an AF lens. I have tried this on my k20d and it works well. I will try to post photos tonight. Hin you are correct it is not a komine from serial numbers it looks to be a cossina made lens as it starts with 09. I hope this helps. I am flexible on the price.

Description says it all. Q-DOS was the funky 3D filter system built in to some lenses. The only V S1 70-210 with it was the Cosina version.
