    I've got a Kim Camera Tokina 28-70 2.6 in PL that is a rehoused lens of the same design as the beloved Angenieux 28-70. It's a little bit too low contrast for my taste, so I'm looking to sell it to pay for some more modern glass. If you like a vintage look, that flares nicely this may be right up your alley.

    Iris, and focus is butter smooth, while the zoom ring likely could use a little service and grease.

    95mm front, and it does not extend or rotate so it works great with clip on matteboxes.

    Dropbox with pictures, and a video to show the focus/iris/zoom are located here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/rnv1wc747..._Hf2HQD7a?dl=0
    SALE PENDING.

    Adam, it's in the dropbox as well as shots to show focus breathing and that the lens is parfocal. The breathing and parfocal shots are pro res 4k so it may take a little to download.

    Did Kim Camera manage to get the lens parfocal? The base lens and the original Angenieux 28-70 f2.6 are not. The shorter, older 35-70 Angenieux is much closer to real parfocal.
