Old Ed: I've been looking for the filter size, but no luck so far. Possibly a 77? Also, it will be interesting to learn if it focuses in the "Nikon" direction or not. BTW, I still have a Tokina f4-5.6 70-200 zoom that I bought back in the 70's. It still looks and works like new. I cannot say the same for my (then top-of-the-line) Nikkor f4.5 80-200; it is now unusable because of zoom creep. And the Nikkor cost about 3,000 USD, in today's dollars. So I'm a BIG Tokina fan. I just wish they had a more extensive line, and I'm sad to see them phasing out of primes.
1° Look at the picture: the lens turns in the"Nikon's mode", both: the zoom and focusing rings ;-)2° As I remember, Tokina's lens reserves original rotation direction i.e. they make the other, in mean of roration, lens for C, other for N.
The nature of cat depicted well ;-)
The lens was Nikkor 18-55, of course.WacB
.. not only for winning but especially for the photo. Just great!
Where it is? It seems to be in Cracow (en), Krakau (de), Cracovie (fr) or in KrakÃ³w (pl). Krackow is the town in east Germany - is it there? :P Have they, in Krackow, Mickiewicz monument, depicted behind the pigeon?
Congratulations! Deservedly on top!
