The SMC Pentax F-100-300 f4.5? There is a section on the forum that has lens reviews of various sorts that can help you as well. I would say $80 for both was a pretty good deal.
I have the Pentax 100-300. It just might be as heavy as my long Five Star 500mm and is certainly the heaviest in my bag at any given moment. I think it has some endearing qualities and drawbacks.
The image quality is about average in my less than critical eyes but I am not so sure about how it sees colors. It does usually have good contrast even though I have not got a lens hood for it. Did I mention that you may find it to be a little heavy?
I don't have any experience with a Tokina lens. I have a Tamron lens with similar focal length as the Pentax F and between those two I cannot pick a clear favorite as they are both different in some areas.
Like I say, there is the lens review section that will give you more opinions about both lenses perhaps but shoot with both of them and then decide what matters to you.
