Nikon F4 NOT included. 

We don’t normally sell newer equipment. Our specialty is classic prewar cameras and lens from the 1930’s and 40’s. But that doesn’t mean that we’re unaware of current trends and developments. We’re also of the opinion that good gear is something to be admired no matter when it was produced.

With that in mind let me introduce a lovely cult classic lens. It’s image quality and build quality is very impressive. This is the Tokina AT-X Pro f2.8/28-70mm lens. It’s fast, it’s sharp, it has a superbly useful focal range and the image quality is wonderful. It’s a mid-range zoom that offers a near perfect balance of size, speed and reach. In short it’s an 80% lens that can meet the needs of most photographers 80% of the time.

It’s also not a huge or heavy lens that you end up leaving at home because you dread dragging it around all day... Nope, this is a beautiful lens, with a practical zoom range that can be carried easily. It’s quite fast too, so if you want to blur a back-ground or continue shooting when you’re losing your golden hour light, there’s nothing to stop you from capturing the image you want, when you want it.

This lens is from Tokina's AT-X series which is their well respected, high end line. However it gets even better… the AT-X f2.6-2.8 28-70mm is an aristocratic design that originated with Angénieux. This Angénieux design was then purchased by Tokina who had the means to mass produce it.    

Among some of the nice features of this lens is it’s AF and manual focus ability. Simply pushing or pulling the focus ring allows you to select the mode you desire. In manual mode, the ring has just the right amount of resistance. It’s light enough to make focusing easy but has enough resistance to make allow it to stay precisely where you want it. Another thing that’s nice (if you use polarizing filters) is the front of the lens doesn’t rotate when you focus. So a polarizing filter remains exactly where you set it.

This lens a Nikon mount. It will fit various Nikon analog and digital cameras but if you want AF function your camera must have a built in motor to work with this lens. (Please do your own research, there are too many Nikon models and variations for me to be familiar with all of them.)

This lens has been used very carefully and looks virtually new. However we’ve recently changed camera systems and because of this it's not going to get the use that it deserves. This lens is in beautiful condition and works as it should. The glass looks like new. There are no scratches or cleaning marks and I’m sure you’ll be very happy with it.
