Value of Tokina 80-200mm/2.8 AT-X SD, MF?


whats the value of a Tokina 80-200/2.8, Manual Focus, without A-Setting?

I consider selling mine and would like to know your opinion on how much to charge for it.


PS: I'm in Land

Tough call on that one... the 80-200/2.8 AT-X Pro AF recently sold on E-bay for $560, and I believe in our classifieds for $425 found here. Of course, those lenses had an A setting.

Just a wild guess knowing that bit of info.. $200? Uh.... you do the currency conversion - I don't know the exchange rates

It's a very nice lens, a little more difficult to use in a DSLR. Potential buyers will have to be willing to put up with manual everything, which will limit price. But it's f2.8 in a range where that's expensive to duplicate even with primes. Maybe $200-250. Today is not a great day for euro conversions.

Thanks guys, that's about what I expected. The exchange rate EUR to USD is really pretty bad at the moment. But luckily that only applies to buyers from the US

However, I was refering to usual prices in Europe, which are about the same in EUR as US prices are in $.

Thanks again.

I sold mine a bit more than a year ago for $335 plus shipping, this was the A version, though. I think the prices went up a little since than.
