I haven't tried this particular lens, but according to my experience with AT-X AF270 (that shares the same design with 28-70/2.6-2.8 that this thread is about) and AT-X AF280PRO (top-version of Tokina-Angenieux lens design) I'd say that your lens may be becoming softer at zoom position when the front element is slid out. Nevertheless, I still recommend you spending those pennies on that lens... unless you're green-mode shooter or a pixel-peeper who spends more time online then shooting.

With that lens you'll get very good results if you're ready to learn its strengths and weaknesses. And if you learn how to use its weaknesses then you'll start getting excellent photos and you can consider yourself as a very advanced photographer.

Good luck,

let me go this way: if you're not afraid of intl transaction and overseas shipping then go buy it and if you do not like it I'll buy it from you. My offer will expire in three weeks from today.
