Tokina AT-X 80-200/2.8 SD

I recently found a Tokina AT-X 80-200/2.8 SD Manual Focus push/pull zoom lens locally, for 150€.

Is it worth that price? Seemed pretty good value as I tried it.

150 euros for a constant f/2.8 telephoto zoom? I'd go for it. 150 euros is still less than $250.

Yes, mistaken the euro for UK pound, my bad.

By coincidence, I took this picture a couple of days ago with the same lens. We figure the plane was at some 40,000 - 45,000 feet. It is a very good lens, surprisingly so since it is at least 25 years old (mine is not an A type).
The smaller picture is a 100% view of the file.
This was shot with the K20D, lens at 200mm and f/5.6, ISO 400.

What do you mean by A contact? That little lever to close the iris? It does have that one ...

An A series lens has a detent beside the minimum aperture marked "A". My version of the Tokina predates that, so I would place it's build to have taken place somewhere around the mid 80s.

.

THE 80-200 ATX F2.8 has several models. One is auto focus ie AF. The other is without auto focus but can be used in Aperture priority, called the PKA. I own one with aperture priority.

There is another one without aperture priority. That is the one for sale by Jm tran
