EDIT 02/09/2013 - UPDATED PHOTOS

Retails for $650-700 USD from various NYC camera shops.

◄  Taking offers  ►

Review here: http://www.bobatkins.com/photography/reviews/tokina_12-24_f4_review.html

Condition:
Very lightly used - there are no obvious blemishes on the lens body, (none on the glass) and was not used professionally.
Comes with caps and hood. I would rate this as near perfect condition with one caveat: it has a tight spot on the focal length ring. When rotated, the focal range sticks slightly in the middle.


Warranty
Don't know about manufacturer's warranty. I do offer DOA warranty with full refund (minus return shipping). I have no reason to believe it is not fully functional. I have a friend with a Canon DSLR, if anyone asks, I will test it out. Beyond that you are on your own.

Thanks for offer. I'll wait for a better one.  Smiley

Wide angle lenses are difficult to design and build, compared to regular and telephoto lenses. They contain a lot more high quality glass and need a big and beefy frame.

Especially this lens, which reaches 12mm on DX (cropped sensor, smaller than full-frame). With traditional full frame 35mm sensor, 12mm gives a much wider field of view, this is why we need wider angle lenses on DX cameras.

This picture gives you an idea of the field of view of a 12mm lens on DX sensor:

Wasn't my intention (it didn't register that there was HDR effect), the point is to show the wide field of view. I also helpfully provided a link to a review of the lens, complete with 'brick wall' shots. Check it out.

Upon further inspection I would say only the first image has HDR correction.

HDR function is starting to appear in camera firmwares, so its really a moot point to call me out on posting an HDR image. And how can you really fault me a simple oversight when Nikon's advertising claims that 'the camera matters'?  Cheesy

Its in like new condition except for the one quirk I noted in the OP. It belonged to a relative of mine, he's an older gentleman, casual amateur shooter. I seriously doubt he took 1000 shots with it, certainly not in bad weather/terrain.

For a cheap used lens, I'd take a 50% cut. But this is not a cheap lens, its built very very well, and performs & handles as one would expect from a $600 lens.

Gonna pass this off to a friend of mine with a Canon DSLR to take some sample shots. I will also update the shots of the lens itself, as they're not good enough.

I would be all over this if I didn't have my old Nikkor 12-24 which cost me about 2x as much.  Good deal for some wide loving for DX format.

Its better than the Nikkor 12-24. Built better. Sharper. Esp. in the corners @ large aperture.
