I tried the Tokina out once, and found it to have the worst ca's I'd ever seen in any lens. Soft until f/8. Maybe a bad copy, but I would steer clear of it. Don't know about the Sigma.....thekman

I have purchased the Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 lens, on the advice of my Pentax repairer/lens guru. Just waiting for it to arrive.

I also weakened and picked up a Sigma 300mm f/2.8 for a steal on eBay. woohoo. Sent it to my lens guru for a check up, make sure it had no dust, fungus etc and he also had a play, reckons it is an awesome lensand I got a real bargain. Waiting for that to arrive too. :-D:-D

Hey Crashman---I know that you will enjoy the new lenses..I am in the market for similar lenses..Do you mind saying what you paid for them..I'll bet it is a lot less than the Pentax smcp-FA 80-200mm F2.8 ED IF that sold on E-Bay on 5-21-07 for 1,725 USD w/o shipping!!! Thanks & enjoy the new glass.. Bruce
