[SOLD] Tokina 90mm F2.5 AT-X Macro Lens with 1:1 Extender. A Legendary Macro Lens. Bo

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Tokina 90mm F2.5 AT-X Macro Lens with 1:1 Extender. A Legendary Macro Lens. Bokina

Asking Price
395 [ SOLD! ]

Item Description
Bought this lens a while ago for over $400usd from ebay. Had a lot fun w/ it. I also have a Pentax A100/2.8 macro lens which is another gem lens. It's really hard to decide which one to let go. But I'm saving up for the new K-7 camera, can't keep both. I'm keeping the Pentax A100/2.8 macro purely because it's a Pentax, not because it's a better lens.

IQ wise, I do feel the Tokina 90/2.5 is better at wide apertures. It's sharper w/ better bokeh than the Pentax A100/2.8. The lens is one of the sharpest lens, w/ a MTF of 4.6 at photodo, one of the highest ever. Its bokeh is so smooth, some even call it a Bokina (or Bokeh King) .

The Tokina 90/2.5 is a 1:2 macro lens on its own, it needs the 1:1 macro extender (which is included in this sale) to reach 1:1 macro level. The lens is very well built, quite heavy for a lens in this size. This is a full manual lens, you have to use M mode to get the best out of it.

If you want to read more about this lens, please take a look at these theads:

Don't tell Nikon ----- [18]: Nikon D90 - D40 / D5000 Forum: Digital Photography Review

The lens I'm selling is in excellent to mint condition w/ perfect glass and perfect working order. Only very few sign of use on the barrel edges. The macro extender is almost like new, probably seldom used. They come w/ the original dedicated hard case which opens from the center, half for the lens, and half for the extender. I also bought a brand new 55mm screw on metal lens hood for the lens, you can even put a 62mm lens cap (not included) at the front of the hood.

The lens comes w/ original front and rear caps, and a high quality Heliopan filter. The extender comes w/ non-original front and rear caps.

It's really hard to find a Tokina 90/2.5 AT-X lens as clean as this one. I might regret the sale in the future. But for now, K-7 has the priority.

Where can anyone fine such a renowned lens is such pristine condition.
I can vouch all that frank has mentioned because I have seen this lens in person at one of our Pentax monthly photo outings and the condition is practically mint.
Shots taken by this lens can definitely rival the Voigtlander 125mm...

Bump up for a good friend.

Yeah, I know what you mean. But I need to top up at least $500usd after I sold my K20D for the K-7

you must really want the K-7!

I don't that I could bring myself to sell mine (and it isn't in such pristine condition as yours).

Do you have any spare body organs? You really need this lens

This is a crop-and-downsample. I simply didn't stop down enough to get the DOF needed to get more of this in focus (and it flew away after one shot).
