Is a Tokina 12-24mm f4 for Nikon in good coniditon without box and manual for $290 a good deal? I can never tell. It isn't the DX II version. It's name is Tokina AF 12-24mm f/4 AT-X 124AF Pro DX Autofocus Lens. Thanks.

As long as there are no marks on the elements, fungus, and no mechanical problems with the lens (rattling, etc) it's a great deal. There could also be front/back focus issues, but that doesn't tend to happen a lot with this lens, (or maybe it's just less noticeable on a WA lens.)

If you can try before you buy, even better. If the seller is trustworthy, go for it.
