Hello. The SD stands for Super Low Dispersion glass. It's a type of glass which is supposed to correct a lot of common light-transmission errors that naturally occur with optics used in this manner. All companies use "special" or "proprietary" methods of producing their respective high-quality lenses. The 35-200 tells you the focal length(how much zoom capability) you have. In other words, 35mm is considered a mild wide-angle lens while 200mm is approximately equal to a 10x pair of binoculars. Tokina makes lenses for a wide variety of cameras. There should also be a letter designation stamped on the rear of the lens mount. "O" for Olympus, "M" for Minolta, "N" for Nikon, "P" for Pentax, etc. Sometimes, there are 2 letters showing that the lens will fit cameras from 2 different companies.---Rick

Need adapter tokina 100-400 f/4.5 minolta to Canon Digital SLR


You need a Minolta to Canon adopter. Because the Tokina was made for the Minolta in the first place. Be aware that even with the adopter, there is a very great chance you always have to focus manually, because the lens can be fitted on the camera, but the electronics will not be compatible.
That is one of the things you almost aways lose, when using lenses from a different make.

Is there an adapter for Tokina Rmc 1 3.5-4.5 35-135mm Zoom Lens to fit to panasonic gh2 m4/3?


Perhaps. Tokina makes lenses with a variety of mounts. If the lens already has an m4/3 mount then you won't need an adapter at all. Some Tokina lenses take the "universal" T-mount. In this case remove the current mount and put on an m4/3 mount. If it has some other fixed mount, m4/3 adapters are available for some of them. It all goes back to the mount already on the lens.

Can I use TOKINA lens 28mm-210 lens with this Nikon body or can I use with other NIKON body D 700?


Tokina makes their lenses with a variety of mounts. A lens with Canon mount, for example, won't fit onto a Nikon. Assuming you get the lens with a Nikon mount, then yes, you can use it with a D70 and with a D700.

I have a tokina SD 35-200mm it fits my nikon F301 will it be compatable with a nikon D 3000 dslr


Only one way to find out for certain, try it and see!

It will certainly fit onto your D3000 without causing it any harm but it probably won't work properly either. There's also the little problem of crop factors: your D3000 has a smaller imaging surface than your 35mm film camera. As a result, it only uses the middle of the image produced by this lens; it will appear as if the camera has a 50-300mm (52.5-300mm to be really accurate) lens fitted instead of the 35-200mmm.

I just bought the Tokina SD 12-24 F4 (IF) DX wide-angle lens for my D70, and it does not autofocus. I'm being told by the company I bought it from that i am past their 2 week return policy. Does this lens...


Only the MkII version of this lens has an autofocus motor built in, the MkI relies on a motor in the body of some Nikon AF SLRs to autofocus. The D70 does not have an inbuilt AF drive motor, so if you have the MkI lens then you can only use it in manual focus mode on your camera.

What camera does this lense fit


These were made to fit many different cameras and the same lens was often branded as a Tokina in most worldwide markets.

Have a look around the mounting plate, there is normally something printed to indicate which camera it's for. e.g. C, Ca, or Can means Canon; N/Ni/Nik = Nikon, P/K = Pentax, O/OM = Olympus, CY = Contax & Yashica, L = Leica, X = Fujinon X (very rare). If there is a screw thread mounting then it's most likely an M42 mount as used on ancient Pentax models and by former Soviet Bloc makers like Praktika and Zenit.

If any of the above have AF added to the code then it's an aurtofocus version of that mounting.

If all else fails take it to a camera dealer, they should be able to tell you.

I have a tokina 500mm f8 lens with a P/K mount


This will depend on the lens you have now.

Some Tokina lenses have a universal fitting, with a separate adaptor mount for each camera body they fit. Its usually the last 5 - 10mm of the mount, and its identifiable by a second release button, which allows the specific fitting to be changed. If you have one of those, you just need the Nikon fitting.

If the P/K mount is an integral part of the lens, you have a couple of choices.
(1) You could get an engineering shop to alter the mount. This costs a lot and probably isn't worth the hassle. (It might be better to sell your lens and buy the nikon equivalent).
(2) You could use an adaptor. These are readily available on eBay.
For example:
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Pentax-PK-K-Lens-to-Nikon-AI-AF-F-camera-mount-Adapter_W0QQitemZ150400359906QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK_Photography_CameraLenses_Lens_caps_hoods_adaptors_ET?hash=item23048f5de2

Note that just because it has the right (i.e. Nikon) fitting, it doesn't mean that it will necessarily have full functionality on the body you intend to use with it.

Some Nikon bodies are "extremely fussy" about which lenses they can use, and it might be worth evaluating whether your proposed solution would work with the camera body you have in mind before committing to any sort of expenditure.
