I used to have both, can't see much difference. Someone selling his 4 yr old ATX Pro II 28-70 /f2.6-2.8 for $400 then now $300.reny said:I'm considering getting the tokina ATX pro II 28-70/2.6-2.8. what is the difference between this lense and the PROSV 28-70/2.8 besides the fix aperture?
ya. i'm considering buying from him, if i can accept the weight, so am thinking if it's more worthwhile getting the Pro Sv new instead.blurblock said:I used to have both, can't see much difference. Someone selling his 4 yr old ATX Pro II 28-70 /f2.6-2.8 for $400 then now $300.
A new Pro Sv from Cathay thru I-Quote should fetch you $368 with GST included.
Well, there is a conception where older lens are sometime better then newer lens, the Tokina f/2.6-f/2.8 is one of the most successful lens Tokina ever build.TME said:if the optical quality is the same why not?
Cool ...... you will definately love it ..... I did ..... although now I switch to a old minolta lens, which is very much lighter .reny said:thanks to all who replied. i've got the tokina 2.6-2.8 from lhjz (nice guy). lens was very well-maintained and looks like new. it's heavier than my camera body though. hope i'll put it into good use.
