The timing is:
Tokina 28-70mm f/2.8 - unknown
Tokina 28-70mm f/2.6-2.8 - 1994
Tokina 28-70mm f/2.8 - 2002 (Pentaxforum: before 2004)
It seems they evolved the lens, probably optically, build and production improvements.

I doubt this design is based on the Angenieux 28-70mm f/2.6 from 1990 as it has a 16 elements in 4 groups design and the Tokinas have 16 elements in 12 groups.

The 28-80/2.8 has 16 elements in 12 groups like the 28-70's but uses SD and molded aspherical elements.

I had the 2.6-2.8 on Nikon mount, back in 1994. It got stolen, along with a Nikon F100, Nikon 80-200 f2.8 and a brand new X-Pan, during a job at Cannes Film Festival in 2002 (I had nightmares about it for years).

I bought a couple of 2.8s, with the plastic petal lenshood (second or third version), and I was quite disappointed with the quality produced. I finally got the first version for the Japanese market (that's "only" f2.8) a couple years ago. The one with the round metal lenshood, on A-mount, and I like he rendering very much, it is not as soft as the previous lenses I bought (but, of course, it lacks the perfection of newer designs)

It was stolen during a job and you had nightmares for years - I guess it was not stolen out of your car at parking lot....

Thank you for the additional information!

For the 28-135, if you were prepared to take a risk and wait a while, you could try one of the KUVRD's new Universal Lens Hoods on Kickstarter.

That KUVRD hood looks like a useless product. It is a rubber hood with a different way to attach it to the lens for US$30,-. The way it attaches to the lens means you cannot use the manual focus ring on most lenses and the zoom ring on others (i.e. my Canon 24-85/3.5-4.5). It is big, floppy and ugly. B&H sells a 72mm collapsible hood for US$6,95 -.

And the worst thing: the guy on the Kickstarter video is way to happy.
