One of my favorite inexpensive lenses from the old days. Very underrated. ...and nice review!

Nice review! How did you adapt this lens to Nikon F? I too got my hands on an RMC Tokina 17mm 3.5 with Pentax mount and converted it using the mount of a faulty 50-250mm Tokina lens with Nikon mount. You seem to have been able to retain the aperture lever, something I haven't been able to do so far. Does the lever work?

Thanks for the link! I now understand the image of the lens with aperture lever is from before the modification. It would have been a nice to have working aperture control from the body, but it is far from essential.

Yes. Working aperture control it will be amazing. But it's very difficult to make I think.
