Wandered into the local brick-n-mortar camera store this morning and spied a mint-condition Tokina 100-300 f/5.6.  My guess (based on the colors used) is late 70's/early 80's.

They let me take it home for a test drive.  Not a bad lens.  Walked around the back yard to test it for sharpness.

I'll need to do some more testing, but if it seems sharp all around I fancy I may just buy it.


Don't mind me..... I'm just out roaming around between Zone II and Zone IX.
