So; now I'm very proud to share with all of you with some examples of my test wide open of this as I named "A SUPER BARGAIN" one!!!

I can assure you that ALL work as intended...the zoom ring remain at the settled/determined focal length...so to my learnedness seems me that this obtained lens was barely use it...!:roll: Really I'm proud of my "bargain-priced" lens!

Enjoy it...as usually critics are welcomed!:P

Peace,

Mounted at an a a sturdy tripod "Gitzo" one, set the SR OFF, wide open 5.6 1/320s shutter speed at 400 ISO.

For me it's clearly astonishing; more for the "Silly/Goofy" price!:-)

i think you got a very good bargain alex. if you can find a vivitar 200/3.5 get it. it's a sleeper and underrated lens. make sure the serial number starts with 22 or 28.

Dear Robar,

Here in Israel Pentax it's NON an a very popular brand now with the Digitally era/epoch...I went in Tel Aviv area...trying to find lenses for Pentax...IMPOSSIBLE!!!:?

For Canon or Nikon...a lot...:!:

Now with the "Kit' & this one satisfies my whole needs...really!:homey:

For you another example of my "Test Day"

Peace,

Hello my dear Roy,

No way to import lenses from Usa...also the price is "NOT" really written...on the "Primes"...only the lower chart are some prices!

No...No, it's for me a seller that want to sell only in USA...shipping from he to me...will be expensive!

Thanks a lot,

Hag Shameah!

No flash used Alex as I do not like using a flash even though I have 3 flashes other than the built in one. Very nice photos with that lens. There are a lot of sleepers out there on Ebay and quite a few ship world wide...Yes even to you. Even with the shipping costs you can find very good lens that will not break the bank! You are so good with the close ups that one day I hope you can get a true 1:1 macro lens...You have a very good talent with the cameras my friend!

Looks like you got a very good copy!

Seems very sharp for a super-zoom stopped down, and wide open you seem to get that "soft" portrait effect.

I'm impressed by the colors aswell. It's performing at least as good (or maybe even better) as my XR version of the lens.

congrats!

Tom
