Tokina RMC II 70-210mm f4

Not clear where this standard 70-210mm zoom fits in the scheme of things: it is the very similar f3.5 version, the precursor to the tokina-made vivitar series one 70-210mm, that is
better known. The II suggests it is a later lens. Pic 1 is of a cfd mount example.
I have now also seen a similar but slower tokina RMC EMZ f4.5 70-210mm, PKA mount.
RMC stands for Rainbow Multi Coating.

The technical specification of the lens is as follows:

Diaphragm: 7 blades.
Minimum focus distance: 1.1 m
Filter size: 55mm
Macro: max 1:4 at 210mm.
Length: 13.9 - 15.2cm.
Weight: ~575g

Mount Type: Pentax K

Lens Review Date: November 8, 2012 I can recommend this lens: Yes | Price: $29.00 | Rating: 9 

Pros: Sharpness, relatively light weight
Cons: Softness at close-up
Sharpness: 9    Aberrations: 8    Bokeh: 8    Handling: 9    Value: 10   

The Tokina RMC series performs nearly as well as the famous Vivitar Series 1 70-210mm but is much lighter and more portable. Its performance is definitely better than the Tokina SD series in term of sharpness and color rendition.
