Tokina ATX 80-400 4.5 - 5.6 Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Tokina ATX 80-400 4.5 - 5.6

Asking Price

Item Location
Bamga (Australia)

Item Description
This is the KAF series one version of the lens.

This lens has just returned from a lens mechanic unrepaired due to no spare parts so is in effect a possible source for spare parts for owners of this lens.
service description: zoom and focus loose and internal elements oxidised.

Focuses reasonably well but the zoom is frozen due to a broken internal ring - part was sought but unable to be located.

Front and rear lens assemblies, auto focusing aparatus, aperture/diaphragm assembly and so on are in good order, but the internal elements in the zooming area are quite badly hazed/oxidised.

Accessories include Tokina soft case, Tokina lens specific bayonet style hood and original front and rear lens caps.

Apart from the faults listed above it is in reasonable cosmetic shape. A ding in the filter rings has been removed previously in order to take 72mm filters. The lens may have been dropped at some time to start the issues described - but not by me.

My review of this lens and images of it are in this post and the image at the top shows the case and hood that you will receive. My copy was ghosting badly at the time of the post so this is probably as a result of the oxidisation.

I will consider reasonable offers.

Are you the original owner of the item being sold?
