General Notes:
1.) According to the AT-X 242 AF's product description all Tokina AT-X zoom lenses are parfocal. This is neither widely recognized nor certified.
2.) Tokina and Pentax collaborate in lens development since 2002. These lenses, released as Pentax, Schneider-Kreuznach and Tokina versions are the same optical designs, but have different barrels and features (like type of AF motor, coatings, focus clutch mechanism etc.).
3.) See the processing log. Additions are welcome.
