This lens is a poor man's generic 70~200 zoom that delivers IQ beyond all expectations. Mine is preferable to my M42 200/f4 at 200mm for PF and is as sharp as my DA 50-200 - just not as small or light weight. If you can live without AF and don't mind using the 'green thingy' this is a nice lens to have in the bag and this looks like a very clean specimen.

Sample pix at f8, K100DS, ~200 ft. Don't know what this'll look like after it gets downsized but you can see the orientation of the key hole in the knob of the lift gate on the original. (Nope, on review, this doesn't do it justice by half.)

The lens DOES work with Pentax DSLRs, of course with manual focus and manual exposure (as simple as hitting a button).

It's also a matter of enabling the aperture ring in the custom function menu.

I can attest that this lens works most marvelously on my K200D. Here's a couple samples (only 'pp' is some moderate work in ACR):

200mm | ISO 200 | F4.5 | 1/350s

200mm | ISO 400 | F4.5 | 1/1000s

Further EXIF is available by clicking through to Flickr.
