Cult Lens: Tokina 60-120mm f2.8 for Pentax!!! SOLD on ebay for 173

Asking Price
US$ 475

Item Location
London UK

Item Description
Rare Tokina 60-120mm f2.8 – legendary portrait zoom lens, these don’t come up for sale in pentax mount even once a year! $475

Beautiful creamy bokeh, focussing smooth, aperture clicks nicely into each f-stop

No haze, no fungus, no scratches, minimal dust that won't affect quality.

Original metal hood ( I think, but "sun" something is etched into it lightly, should be visible on one of the pics), original front cap, rear cap, jessops 55mm filter always kept on lens to protect it. Also, original manual, the lens cloth that apparently came with it and (!) the original lens registration card

I took all the portraits here with the lens:
Councillor Smedley

(and a brilliant site if you've got some time to peruse it)

I've found the lens wide open a bit soft so beautiful for portraits and it gets razor sharp above around f4 and up.

I’ll start off with $475 and see if anyone grabs it straight off or makes a near offer.









loads more pics of and with the lens if requested. and 6 more in the photobucket gallery where these are.

Trade??

Although this is on ebay at the moment, I would consider a trade for a tamron 70-150mm f2.8 "soft" or a 50-135mm Pentax or 31mm f1.8 pentax (plus some money on my part for the last two)

2.8 throughout

yep, all the way through. and like a lot of the good pentax lenses, this one is smaller and lighter than you'd expect. I'm amazed it hasn't sold yet.
