What a bargain!

Just have to share my excitment

I won an Ebay auction for a Tokina AT-X 28-85mm f3.5-4.5 lens in apparently perfect working order. Its got the A contact, manual focus, original lens hood. Close focusing, down to 1:3.5 according to the info on the net. suits my 62mm filters i just bought for my 70-210mm lens. Picking it up tomorrow from 2 suburbs over (so no postage cost) and the auction closed at $22.49AU! So cheap! Excited to see how the photos come out

Cant wait Should make a good walk around replacement for my F 35-70 (wider, longer, similar f stops, better macro)

Should be a nice upgrade over a 35-70 in focal range. A 35-70 on an APS-C body becomes a lot more limited, though it makes for a great portrait zoom lens.
