Item Location

Item Description
This is truly a "long lens", a Tele-Tokina tuber from the '70's. Not much info on this, but there is also a Tele-Vivitar version.

It takes a T-mount (not an m42) and I'm including one for Pentax and one for Nikon.

I said it was "long" :-)



The gun-sight up front helps aim the thing...


It has a maximum aperture of f8 that is not too bad for 800mm, but a focusing aid is helpful and sturdy tripod is highly recommended.

It is manual focus and manual aperture. You can use it in M or Av mode. It has 2 aperture rings - one to set the aperture and one to stop it down. The actual hole is circular.



A third wider ring in front is actually where the lens separates into 2 parts.

The focus ring has about 330 degrees of throw, and is marked from a minimum of 60 feet to 500 feet. I think the MFD is 33 feet or so....It has a screw-in lever that I suppose is an aid to focusing, but I always leave it off. There was another lever at one time that fit on the barrel below the DOF indicators.





Probably more of a collector thing than a National Geographic tool. Actually, it is a great conversation piece when at the pier or park. I let the pretty women look through it :-)

Has some cosmetic scuffs over the years as you can see (and one big one not shown) but no dents or dings.

I'm interested in a WR lens in the 18-->xx(x) variety mostly, or...Sigma 30 1.4, Pentax or Sigma 17-70... Willing to trade (with cash in appropriate direction). I also have a low-mileage 17" laptop that can be involved.

A couple shots.

I live close to a firing range. Wonder what kind of looks that lens would get me if I brought it in a large violin or cello case? It must be "interesting" to mount the lens.

ladies attention...

if you are looking for ladies attention, get a pupy, a small golden retriver of a poodle min.

That lens is impressive, I have couple of those that I got for the sake of having them. It takes a while to get a photo taken. But you can exhibit at home.

3 or 4 of them could probably take out Kaddafi.

You might have something, but the lens requires only a little maintenance.

PM's replied to.

Someone wanted to see:

The other scuffs. These are only the painted surface.


The glass:




"Down the barrel":


I don't see any fungus or scratches. The lens comes apart, so if you had the right equipment (a long soft stick with micro fiber cloth on the end) you could clean the back of the front element.
