Tokina 20-35mm F3.5-4.5‏

hello everyone! searched though the lens forums for a review on this lens, but didn't find this exact one. i found comments on the 20-35 f2.8 which were helpful, but i'm afraid the f3.5 might be a completely different lens. i've heard the f3.5 called the plastic fantastic, but this is the metal barel version. does anyone have any experience with this lens. i know its a bit heavy, so i'm ready for that. oh, the seller is asking $90 in good condition.

thanks,

Jon

My understanding is that the 20-35mm came first and that the plastic fantastic is essentially that lens in a cheaper guise. Next time I see one come up for 90.00 I'll probably get it for film use.

On this last one ignore the guy trying to hijack as regards printing.

Hope this helps.

thanks for the links-- looks like it has decent reviews, but some outter distortion concerns. i guess i should have asked if this might be a sharper lens compared to my pentax 18-55 kit lens-- just looking for something to hold me off until i can decide on what direction i want to take in getting some expensive glass. thanks!
