I've made test shots vs Sigma 70-200 2.8 EX II lens. and it work quite well.
To be honest very well.
So below is test shot made by K1 in Catch-in focus mode.

What is great? as it is Adaptall lens, with PK mount it work as A lens so fully automatic aperture.
And there is no other option for 200mm 3.5 A-lens
That 200/3.5 worked wel for you, Piotr. The Adaptall-2 site ( http://adaptall-2.com/lenses/04B.html ) made it seem like an interesting lens (as most Adaptall-2 lenses are):
"A lightweight telephoto which features a more expensive dual focus helicoid such that the rear elements move at a different rate than the front focus elements. This provides a fairly good degree of correction for close focusing induced aberrations. Thus this lens offers above average performance at close focusing distances compared to most other after market 200mm telephotos. This lens also is a good yet very affordable lens for portrait photography."
And, as a Pentax user, you can also see one of the Adaptall-2 lens advantages - the ability to use nearly all of the Adaptall-2 lenses with a PKA-mount adapter for fully automatic metering (if desired).
Thanks for sharing.
If you saw a fellow drowning, and you could either save him or photograph the event . . . What lens would you use ?
