DA* 200mm on K-1

Hello there,

One of the camera shops in my country has pretty nice Pentax gear discounts lately, and one of them applies to DA* 200mm. Seeing that I recently acquired K-1, I'm wondering whether that lens could make a good addition to my gear, as there aren't many large aperture AF tele option for Pentax FF. Unfortunately this is an old-type SDM lens, which is sluggish at best, and unreliable at worst (at least that was the case for 16-50 that I had for a while on my K-3 II).

However, maybe there are people here that have first hand experience with such combo? Is it worth it?

All the best
