Thanks, that was what I might suspect. The one difference I see in choosing
between the Nikon and the Tokina is AF-S vs AF. At least for me what I had
in mind for it's use the slower focusing of the AF Tokina was more than
worth the $$ saved compared to the Nikon.

I am looking seriously at getting the 100-300mm f4 tokina for outdoor
wildlife shots, and have seen amazing shots taken with it. The manual
focus isn't a problem, and I am sure that it beats the lower-end auto
focus lenses like the Nikon 70-300 non-ED (can't afford the ED
version), but if I am wrong, and the Nikon 70-300 non-ED out-performs
the Tokina 100-300mm f4 lens, kindly let me know.
