Difference btw nikon afs 24-85 f/3.5 and tokina 28-80 f/2.8
what would be the obvious difference between these 2 lens disregarding the price?

the 24-85 has a variable maximum aperture from 3.5 to 4.5 while the Tokina has a constant max aperture of 2.8 throughout the focal length range.
The range of focal length is different.
Filter size diameter is different (67mm for Nikon vs 77mm for Tokina, I think).
AF-S mechanism for Nikon, traditional screw-type AF mechanism for Tokina.
G lens for Nikon, meaning that it has limited functions on older Nikon bodies like F90X, F4. Full functions on newer Nikon bodies like F100, F80, D70, F5, F6, D1h, D1x. The Tokina should work on older and newer Nikon bodies.
Hope it helps
