Item Description
Here's a handy, useful and somewhat rare FULL FRAME wideangle zoom for your Pentax camera. I've tested it on an K5IIS and found no flaws- it's sharp, colorful, compact, with good handling. Internal focus, so the lens length doesn't change when zooming of focusing. The glass is clean and clear, and the lens body is in pristine condition.

When you check the database page for this lens, you'll find comments like :"The Tokina 20-35mm f/3.5-4.5 AF is the steal of the decade for an FX ultrawide zoom. Its optics are on par with most of Nikon's best lenses of its era, and this Tokina's mechanics are better than Nikon's similar-speed 18-35mm zoom. The steal of the decade! " But that would be from Ken Rockwell, who some love to hate, so try this, from an ordinary civilian: "This is a top notch, hard working lens, built, typically for Tokina, like a tank and with a smart 6-blade design. The weight and feel match up really well with the k3, and of course will stay in my arsenal if Pentax ever goes ff."

The PF database has no other reviews, because this lens is somewhat rare. Their average rating is 9.50, and the average price is $200. If I thought I could afford a K-1, I'd be keeping it.
