Help with buying a Tokina lens in Germany

Well,

I'm in a bit of trouble. There is a lens up for sale in a german Nikon forum (http://www.nikon-fotografie.de/vbulletin/boersen/)
The seller refuses to send the lens abroad (to Slovenia - only willing to send locally) so I'm asking here (not really sure if it's a correct forum) if anyone is willing to buy the lens on my behalf and send it to me?

I know it's asking a lot, just thought I'd take my chances
Thank you.

And this is a Pentax lens? Hopefully it is!

But regardless of that, annoying though it might be I personally would just walk away from it - it's the seller's loss. There will be another lens.

I send a lot of photographic gear overseas and, although there are risks involved, generally things work out OK. It's the best way to get the best prices.
Best regards, John

Sadly it's not It's for my Nikon system.
And I guess I will have to walk away since it was sold already. Too bad though...would have loved a DA* 50-135 on my Nikon D7100 (it was a Tokina 50-135mm which is the same in design)

Not a great lens under the Tokina brand, quite bad flare (no SMC coating), no SDM, no quickshift.

Optics are the same aren't they though? SDM absence doesn't bother me, lack of quickshift does though, but what can you do.

Might be tricky to fit on his Nikon.

Most people seem to make that mistake.
