    As promised, here are some quick test grabs from my new
    Tokina AT-X-Pro 28-70mm F2.6-2.8 (Angenieux design) - did I mention that I love that lens?

    The way you can let the light leak in, is amazing

    The 28-70 f:2.6 AF was Angenieux’s last consumer oriented zoom, that was targeted towards the pro market. The lens was just as good optically as any other pro zoom lens of the time either by Nikon or Canon. Unfortunately, its price was also on par with the best of the competition, which made it a tough sale. Later on when Angenieux pulled out of the SLR market, Tokina managed to get usage rights to the Angenieux design and produce the AT-X PRO AF 28-70mm f/2.6-2.8 lens.
    The one I have is the first version of the Pro series, with the screw on hood.
    If somebody is interested, here is some moreInformation.

    Lovevly images Frank! Is that on the Ursa Mini 4.6k?

    I have the same lens, really like the rendering, though it can flare a bit, so it's more for filmmaking than corporate stuff.

    How do you think this would match the Sigma 18-35 w/ a 1/8 promist?

    This is a vintage lens and a vintage lens formula/coatings.
    You probably can get close, especially with some post work, but that certain look is almost impossible to get.

    Pretty much like the magic of the Cooke glas, wich is impossible to emulate.

    Anyone know the difference between this version of the lens and the one with the constant 2.8 aperture?
    (Tokina AT-X PRO 28-70mm f2.8)

    EDIT: Okay, the whole history and details of the 5 different versions are in Frank's second link.
    Turns out you only want versions 1 or 2 of this lens, with the version 1 being the treat.
