Lense mount help?

Hi, I'm new to the forum and photography. I just got my first DSLR a K-7 and I'm looking for a zoom lense on a small budget. I found a Vivitar DL 75-205mm 3.8-4.8 Zoom Lens Pentax P/K Mount on Ebay and would like to get some feedback on the lense and also will this mount work on my K-7?

Any help would be appreciated.
Robert

The lens databases are very nice here, I spend a lot of time there when I have the time.

A PK mount should work. Is it this one

You're aware that it's full manual (focusing and exposure)?

I don't know if it exists, but be carefull if it's a PKR mount with the infamous Ricoh pin as it will get stuck on the camera.

Yes, that's the lense.

Check out the sticky on manual lenses at the top of the beginners forum. That will tell you have you have to use the lens. Don't be afraid of manual aperture lenses - I still use two of them. It is simply a little bit different, but easy to get the hang of.
