    I have a Tokina 12-24mm for sale in very good condition.

    Optically it is excellent with no marks, dings or scratches on the glass what-so-ever.

    The body shows some signs of wear with extremely minor wear and tear (the worst being a small split in the rubber on the aperture ring and rubbing of the lettering on the lens cap.

    Lens comes boxed with all bits and pieces that you would expect. 'tis a great sharp lens and the only reason I am selling is that it isn't fully compatible with my FF D700.

    Recent sample pic taken with the lens:

    Priced to sell at £230 inclusive of delivery!

    also, while I am at it... have a Tamron 17-50mm in excellent condition. It is the one with built-in motor so compatible with lower-end Nikons.

    It is an extremely sharp copy, and I should know... I went through three copies to get it!!!

    A sample image:

    If anyone wants the pair I am sure I could sort out some kind of attractive price.

    Boxed with both caps but missing the lens hood. As such am asking SOLD delivered.

    Location: Leicester

    I bought it second-hand so not sure on exact age. It is the non-VC version. Really cant stress enough just how sharp this lens is, even at f2.8!

    Narborough but travel arround a bit so could drop off or meet in most parts of Leicester

    Could do the pair for £390 delivered...

    Cash on collection before Thursday is fine but 120 is just too low I'm afraid ... Would be happy to knock a bit off for collection but I think 140 would be the absolute best I could do...

    Think you could stretch to £130? My research tells me that's similar to what you could expect on the popular auction site after three sets of fees - and you get the added appeal that your buyer can't do a charge-back on cash...

    And there was me thinking I was the only one interested.... OK, I'll go to £140 for the Tamron, assuming I can give the lens a 5 minute test on pickup.

    'fraid thats a little too low. I do, however, want a quick sale and if you are still interested and can cough up the extra £7 for insured delivery it is all yours. If not it will be off to ebay this evening.

    Cheers,
    Michael

    £200 was my best offer. I've since picked up a Nikon WA though, so will pass.
