if you can live with manual focussing:


K 2.5/135
K 2.5/200
A* 2.8/200

They're all better than Tokina At-X 2.8/80-200.
I had these lenses (not the 2.57200).

As for Sigma 2.8-3.5 telezoom-lens:
I found an old lens test in fotomagazin and this lens wasn't good, really not good....
I once had a Tamron 3.5/70-210 which has been quite good but...

- Sigma APO 3.5-4.5/70-210
- Pentax A 4.0/70-210
and of course my primes
have been better.

I once had the mentioned Vivitar 3.5/200 (M42 mount) - but it simply isn't the same class optically.....
Even my old Soligor 2.8/200 has been better.....

But it all depends on your needs:
- AF?
- A-contacts?
- focal length?
