First time I see this...
Vivitar Series 1 200mm F3 5 Auto Focus Pentax | eBay

Might interest some collectors here ?

This lens is supposedly the same lens as the Komine-made Viv S1 200mm f/3, but with an added AF module by Honeywell.

The glass has an excellent reputation, but the AF is not ready for prime time (and results in the somewhat slower wide open aperture than its MF counterpart).

Either way, the eBay guy's asking price is way too high.
