Hello All,

This will be the first time I have asked for any ones advice about a lens. I have always been able to make up my mind by doing my own research and reading reviews. I want to buy two new lenses in the next couple of weeks.

1. Nikkor 80-200 F/2.8D IF-ED AF-S
2. Nikkor 28-70 F/2.8D IF-ED AF-S

I have read what reviews there are on the 28-70 AFS. Nelson Tans review on this lens says that the lens does not change it's length while it is focusing. There is no mention of of how this lens zooms. My question about this is..Does it zoom internally too? I have read in another review that the lens changes its size but it was not mentioned if it changed during zoom or during focusing.

If any one has any experience with this lens I would appreciate any information you could give me on it. Good or bad.

Also Nelson talked about the Tokina 28-70 2.6 - 2.8 ATX Pro II
and gave it a very good review. Any body have any experience with this lens? It is almost 4 times less expensive than the comparable Nikkor. Just wondering!!!!
