I've got a question. (I don't own this lens, just looking at everyone's pictures). Does anyone else feel that this lens doesn't have the "Pentax" look (like from FA glass)? I'm not sure if it's just bias because I know it's a tokina, but the colors just don't do it for me. Incredibly sharp and nice bokeh, but the colors lack a defining character (warmth?). The cat in the post above me comes close, but (at least on my monitor) it has a magenta cast, that if balanced out would look more sterile (would be warm toward yellow rather than magenta with FA). Am I full of it?
It it a Pentax design, licensed by Tokina, like a couple of other lenses. This claim that it is the other way around surfaces now and then. Here is the patent on the 50-135, as you can see in Pentax name. Everything is on the web as long as you search deep enough.

63mm, 1/60, f2.8, iso100. Took this 18 months ago when i first got the lens. Surprised that its this good considering the parameters.

Its quality across the entire optical range, always amazed me. Another grand thing about it, when its raining, the hood is long enough to keep droplets off the lens. Thats no small thing, as droplets on the optical lens can spoil a lot of pictures.

I sometimes consider this lens to be my "meathook", that is, when i need a new image to sell at the tourist shop, this lens as often as not, will come back with a worthy image. I just wish i was as good at what i do as this lens is at recording images :-)

Thanks all for the pictures.
I considered in the past to buy this lens, but now I am a bit dissapointed. I saw very few pictures here that are sharp enough for my taste. In fact, most of them are average, except for the colors. Few of them I really like, like those on the first page of the thread, and last photos posted on last.
I think that it can't be compared to a prime lens, but it probably is a very good compromise.

You need to get your eyes checked.
