SOLD: Tokina 12-24mm f/4 DX Mk II for Nikon

I purchased this motorized Tokina 12-24mm f/4 DX Mk II for Nikon mount last summer. I am now selling this lens, because I would like to purchase a professional Nikkor lens close to that focal range. This lens is in pristine condition, and the Mk II version had just come out when I purchased (the difference between the first and second versions is that the one I'm selling has an internal motor almost as fast as AF-S).

** This will work on all Nikon DX cameras and will work on FX cameras but will vignette or have to be used in DX-crop mode. This lens was more geared towards Nikon D40/D40X/D60/D3000/D5000 users but works perfectly on D70/D80/D90/D200/D300/D300S.

SOLD for $385 Shipped OBO
the lens was $600 new in June of 2009

Condition: LN (Like New)

Cosmetic: Perfect, no grip wear, never been used in bad weather, always kept in my padded camera bag or studio when not in use.

Optics: The glass has zero scratches, no sign of dust, haze or fungus. Pristine condition!

Serial #: 8305617

Includes:

- Tokina 12-24mm f/4 Lens with Built-In Motor for Nikon
- Lens Hood
- Caps
- Manuals
- Warranty Card
- Original Box

more images to come soon

^^ the red stripe shows that it's the version with the internal hypersonic motor

My feelings about this lens:

This Tokina has served me well for the wide end and will perform similar to the Nikkor 12-24mm. The internal motor is almost as fast as AF-S, and it is ultra quiet! It has a smooth and barely audible whisking sound to it during autofocus! I am only selling it, because I'm selling all my third party lenses and have my eyes set on a pro Nikkor 17-35mm. I don't really need 12mm for what I do. Only gripe I have is that the Built-In Motor can sometimes hunt for focus in low light, but that's because this is not meant to be a low light lens with the constant f/4 aperture. I'd be happy keeping this for years to come if I wasn't so interested in completely overhauling my lens lineup.

Manufacturer's description and specs:

TOKINA AT-X 124 AF Pro DX II 12-24mm f/4 with Built-In Motor for Nikon
(compatible with all Nikon DSLRs and most Nikon film SLRs but geared towards APS-C DX sensors)

The Nikon mount AT-X 124 PRO DX II has a built-in AF motor drive. The motor inside the lens was loaded onto the Nikon mount specification anew. The AF operates smoothly and quietly due to a DC motor that uses a new AF control gear assembly. With the built-in motor, the lens can be used in AF mode with the Nikon D60 and D40 and other silent wave bodies.
The Canon version of the lens already has a built-in AF motor and will benefit from the improved multi-coating.
The optical system of original AT-X 124 PRO DX won awards for its sharpness world-wide. This design was maintained in the AT-X 124 PRO DX II and improved with the introduction of new multi-coating_ system. The new multi-coating helps reduce reflections that can cause flare and ghosting even more than in the AT-X 124 PRO DX.
The AT-X 124 PRO DX II features the one-touch focus clutch mechanism. _ To use the one-touch focus clutch mechanism, move the focus ring forward, towards the front of the lens, for AF or back for MF. This allows for a fast and easy manual over-ride in difficult lighting situations.
Digital single-lens reflex DX lens_ dedicated to digital SLR cameras with APS-C sized sensors.

I know, I absolutely love this lens, but I'm preparing for advancement to full-frame at the end of this year, so I'm looking into the Nikkor 17-35mm and Nikkor 14-24mm lenses, would prefer to get the latter of the two.

This lens goes brand new for $550 (because it's the one with the motor), and I'm selling for $385 shipped, just about a year old.
