    I have the Nikon version. However, thee AF ring gets stuck from time to time (It's a push mechanism, there's a ring around the barrel you pull it towards you to switch to MF and push it back up to switch to AF). I have no idea what causes this, as the ring is able to turn left and right but pulling it down becomes impossible, even with a sheer amount of force. I have to play with it for a while to get it back to manual focus. Anybody else have this problem?
    This is a common problem for Tokinas in general, I worked in a rental house that had a range of these. And EVERY single lens with the push pull focus clutch, developed this problem. If you pull on the ring, and spin it to the very end of the focus range the clutch will catch and will allow you to actually get to MF.

I believe some that say 2.8 on the lens could be the correct version, but I’m not sure how to find that out. If any one can help me out, I would really appreciate it.
      Sorry I was incorrect.

      Japanese market lenses were marketed as f/2.8. Exports were 2.6-2.8.

      The lens should be ATX-PRO I or II. The II had an anti dispersion element and better coatings.

      Avoid SV models of 28-70.

      • I know there has already been talk about adapters, but I wanted to continue the discussion on that. i got a Ver II recently with Nikon mount. I have other lenses with Leitax mounts and was wondering if there was a similar solution for this lens. I'm looking to permanently convert the mount to Canon EF. I really want to avoid any play in the mounts. I've had issues with that on other lenses that were simply adapted with friction mounts. Any suggestions for specific products? Thanks!

        • The evolution of Tokina 24 (28) -70 (80) /2.8 (2.6-2.8) lenses (Info was autotranslated from this review http://radojuva.com/2017/02/tokina-a...-at-x-270-pro/ ) :

          Tokina AT-X AF 28-70mm 1: 2.8 - orange rim near the front lens, filter diameter 72 mm, focusing is not internal. Window focusing distance. The name on the box is Tokina AT-X 270 AF.

          • Maybe a little off topic info, but looking at https://tokinalens.com/about/history/ i found 20-35mm f/2.8 lens from 1990s that in pair with 0.58x Speedbooster may be perfect for S16 cameras. From reviews those lenses are ok, but image may be different from Angenieux/Tokina 28-70 look https://kenrockwell.com/tokina/

            1994 Tokina AT-X 235 AF PRO 20-35mm f/2.8 (use aspherical lens elements) http://radojuva.com/2012/10/obzor-to...-pro-20-35-mm/
            1981 Tokina AT-X 35-70 f/2.8 (classic manual zoom lens, front element rotates while focusing)
            1981 Tokina AT-X 24-40mm f/2.8 (classic manual zoom lens, front element rotates while focusing) http://radojuva.com/2013/01/obzor-to...mm-f-2-8-at-x/

              • Leitax makes a Nikon F to EF mount that screws on top the F mount, to convert the lens to EF.

                        awesome!

                        Would this be the correct type to get for the Angenieux formula? https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Tokina-A...IAAOSw71Fdfmta

                        Probably wont get that one specifically since it has some issues but it's a bit tricky to get the right one and not over pay.

                        • Looks like the Japan market version, it has the 77mm filter front, screw in lens hood, all indicators of the original Angenieux version. The US market version was a f/2.6-2.8.
