Missing in 3rd-party lens database

Perusing the 3rd-party lens database I noticed that a review of my (ancient and thus manual) Sigma 80-200/3.5-4 seems to be missing.
It is a nice and rather compact push/pull zoom that came with a matched close up lens and an attached retractable lens-hood. In my film-days of yore it practically lived on my Ricoh XR2.

I have been wondering whether or not to replace this lens with a Vivitar Series 1 70-210/3.5 to pair up with my recently arrived LX.
This latter lens is now going at unbeatable prices on E-bay but since I already have a Tamron 24-135/3.5-5.6 (paid 125 for it incl shipping) there would be no real need other than to satisfy my LBA.

Thanks for any insights.

dreamsof"LX" -- are you saying you wrote a review and it has vanished? Or are you saying that you simply cannot find that anyone has yet reviewed the lens you mention?

Sorry I got misunderstood.
I own this lens and I can not find a review of it in the database.
and yes it is a P&P zoom as well as 3.5-4 / 80-200.

At the time I bought it, it fared rather favorably in tests and I have used it extensively on my film camera.

Sorry for the quick shots from my phone.
