Default Pentax 80-200mm f/4?

Is the Pentax 80-200mm f/4 lensworthy? There is a listing on the local Craig's List for $75, but I have no idea on the IQ. The only thing that attracted me was the fixed focal length (albiet a f/f4). Would appreciate any feedback.

Thanks!

i've had a couple of these and they are well worth 85usd.. problem is there are 2 vesions. you want the first version..
let me reinstall my old favorites and i'll get back. prob here is that many don't have a set of calipers or a scale to suit.

actually it looks like you mean the M80-200/4.5
it is a great lens. i use the A70-210/4.. it's twice as heavy and a lot longer and suffers from zoom creep but is a stellar lens just as this one is..
