    Default Info about 80-200mm tokina lens.

    Hi buddy from forum,

    any one has idea about this lens?pricing and performance. i got a buddy intro me to this lens. basically i am looking for another lens other than my 50mm, to do street shooting and portrait shooting. i need a good performance and sharp lens.

    don mind getting good condition second hand lenses, cos i have budget limit at 400 for 500$ for next month.

    any good suggestion? aperture of 2.8 is good enuff for me oredi. no necessary must be very high power. if my budget can get such lens would be ideal.

    400 - 500 for a Tokina f/2.8? Red Ring or Gold Ring? I don't think you can get a gold ring edition for f/2.8. What gives you the idea there is a zoom lens for 80-200 with aperture bigger then 2.8?

    Second hand Red Righ Tokina is about 450 - 600

    Quite impossible to be getting a Zoom f/2.8 constant lens for $500. The Tokina Red Ring edition is a good lens, but then not much people selling it either.

    Oh, the prices I had quote above are prices for secondhand.

    Actually when cathay had it on sale was $860 for the gold ring *I think*
    Last I saw they only had the nikon mount version on sale.

    Price when not on sale should be just about $1k.. don't quote me on that though.
