I have the earlier version (2.6-2.8). It is excellent.

The earlier copies were originally a lens design from Angeneux. I am unsure about this particular copy - there are many versions with differing designs

Oh man, I was too busy today so just saw this. This has been on my wish list for a while and my "to beat" price was $331!

According to this blog

Tokina AT-X PRO AF 28-70mm 2.6-2.8 - John Caz Photo

the version that just sold was not the Pro I or II, which are better. I would recommend either Pro I or II versions (I have Pro II version).

i sold the 28-70 2.6-2.8 pro 2 for 300 a few month ago, i guess this is a nice price considering they accepted the offer lower than 280.

Well, another has popped up and I think it is the Pro I version

Can anyone concur that it is Pro I version?

I might be in the minority but I prefer the 280 to the 270. I know it can be temperamental under certain back lighting conditions, people complain of the halo look, but one can learn to watch out for it. Once a while the Halo may come handy. And if you get to know it really well, the lens can deliver even at f2.8. It's soft at 80mm but then I consider the focal length to be a bonus anyway.
