I have an old (late 70's I believe) 80-200mm f/4.5 tele macro that works great on my K1000 35mm camera. Very smooth focus and Zoom. It is a heavy lens but that just reflects the date it was made. I've used it with a 2X multiplier and a 1.7 tele converter. Works fine with those too. Got some film using this lens that needs processing. I'll get back with some photos when it is a done deal!

the 70-210 series1 should be even better.

I must agree. the series 1 Vivitars are becoming classics. No I take that back...They already are classics! Saw one on Ebay...In fact I believe it was a 70-210 lens!
