Quite overlooked, probably because it's not very fast. But a good lens IMHO.
Got a pic with the lens mounted on the Nex? (to get an idea of the physical size)
For a 5x zoom, the lens is relatively slim and light, with a 55mm filter thread. Part of the reason I bought this lens.
I think you can usually find it around $50-60, even cheaper if you look on eBay.
One more thing, it has a macro setting at 50mm that goes to 1:1.4 magnification.
Beautiful colours! Do you use the lens hand-held also at 250mm and what shutter speed do you need to get sharp pics?
I have a monopod attached to the camera, it can help some shots, such as the daffodil and mushroom ones.
But more than half of the times, I use it just handheld, even at 250mm, the butterfly shot definitely was just handheld at 250mm.
The shutter speed ranges from 1/640 to 1/80s, this butterfly shot was at 1/640s. (By clicking on the image, you should be able to see EXIF and enlarged size).
Very nice results from a vintage lens. Nicely done Brian.
Well done. I have two Tokina's that I just love.
This is a hand-held shot taken quickly with my Tokina 100-300 f5.6, a similar lens to 'ENO789's.....These lenses effectively have no real monetary value but are good peformers and not bulky to carry about.
I agree, a hidden gem.

There's spec (weight, length) for this lens.
A few from my recent trip to New England.
Nice, love this time of the year.
Really like the first one Brian.
Yeah, me too!
Hi can you share dimensions and weight of the 50-250mm tokina lens?

I only did some test shots with it and I wasn't particularly impressed so I didn't put it to use. The test pictures came out a bit dull to my taste though sharpness is OK.
Thanks so is 725grams.... I am wondering if this is a bit bulky for travelling and I can try as alternative this:
