Tokina 70-210 insights

Hi all,

I have a Pentax F 70-210 that I bought used. Glass was in good condition but the rubber grip on the barrel was stretched and loose - it needs to be sent in for a replacement as it is difficult to zoom the lens.

I'm not sure if its worth sending the Pentax in for repairs as I have located an autofocus Tokina 70-210 for less than $100 (but haven't seen the lens yet)

Here's my question: Has anyone used a Tokina 70-210 autofocus lens or know of some sites with photos from the lens? Were there different versions of the lens that were "better" than the others
