Tokina AT-X Pro 28-70mm 1:2.8

I'm thinking of buying one from a large online bidding site. I haven't found a whole lot on this lens, and also it seems there were different versions.

I would greatly appreciate any feedback from the community.

I just know that it comes in a lot of different varieties, and that one of them in particular is considered to be a very good value buy in the Nikon camp.

This is the best review of it I've seen: Nikon glass: Tokina AT-X Pro 28-70mm f/2.6-2.8

Re: Tokina AT-X Pro

Several versions of this lens receive "good" to "very good" scores on Photozone's user lens survey. It's also built like a tank (and weighs as much). I was after one myself for a while until the Tamron equivalent came out.
