Tokina 300/5.6?

Is this lens worth getting? Apparently it's for Pentax and Ricoh cameras. I'm more looking for an 'oldie but goldie' 400mm but if this is a bargain I'll grab it.

Thanks for any input!

Best regards,
Boucicaut

It's a very slow lens and has no apochromatic correction.
Not sure if you will be happy with it.
Certainly an oldie, but no goldie.

Ok, no goldie then It's cheap though...I'll have to think about it.

Thanks for the info,

a better lens would be the pentax smc-m 300 f/4. it's not an 'a' lens but it is probably better optically than the Tokina, and a stop faster as well.
