I have one too. It's quite solid, the photos aren't too bad, but there are of course better lenses nowadays. It has an A setting on the aperture ring, which is quite useful. If you can get one in good condition and cheap, then by all means, get it.

I bought one today. Not bad. Sharp for portraits. The measuring is just in A setting accurate, in manual overall overexposed. otherwise very good colors. At K-x, you must remove (with 2 screws) the spacer ring, and then fits in lens mount.

I have one, and it's a great little lens. Amazing the quality out of such a small lens. There are a number of reviews in the database where you can also find mine:
Tokina 80-200 SZ-X f1:4.5-5.6 Lens Reviews - Tokina Lenses - Pentax Lens Review Database
(Do note that there are two versions of this lens. I have the very compact one w/ 52mm filter. There is a longer one w/ 49mm filter that may require removal of a mounting sleeve.)
EDIT: And now I see this was a thread from 2011... but igabc added some really excellent sample photos!
