Item Description
Reversal of life circumstances requires me to get rid of some beloved possessions, and this lens is one of them.
(attached K-5 shown in photos is not for sale and not included)

This is the famous Tokina 828 AF 80-200mm f2.8 AT-X PRO. Tokina's official description:
This workhorse lens can be counted on to perform exceptionally under a wide range of photographic conditions. Thousands of photographers world-wide have come to rely on this sturdy professional optic.

Popular with wild-life photographers because of itís durability and proven optical design, the AT-X 828 AF PRO has been in been in Tokinaís AT-X series since its inception and has evolved through several generations. The unique floating element system focuses two different element groups providing faster AF speed and uniformly high image quality from close focus to infinity.

These tested razor sharp optics, which use SD glass to eliminate chromatic aberrations, are housed in a set of all metal, precision-milled and fitted lens barrels that have been hard coated to improve there mechanical performance and longevity. Tokinaís Focus Clutch Mechanism is incorporated for a faster auto focus and smoothly damped manual focus movement.
This one is is excellent shape optically, mechanically and cosmetically. You should read the PF Reviews and understand that this is a PRO lens. If you don't need the build quality and the fast glass/shallow DOF you can save money buy purchasing a Pentax-F 70-210mm. This lens has been called "military grade" in build quality. Some have said it can be used as a weapon itself. On an APS-C this lens is the (35mm equiv. FOV) of a 120-300mm f2.8

Includes original caps. Will be happy to ship worldwide to Pentax Forum members with good Feedback (no new members, please).

Priced to sell at $599 FIRM, plus shipping. This lens will have a shipping weight of close to 4 lbs (including packaging/protection). Can ship fast or cheap, your option. Insurance will be required, but is an inexpensive protection for both buyer and seller. PM me for a shipping quote (with insurance) to your location.
