    really impressed , very sharp, easy to use, can shoot without tripod using faster speeds. The color is excellent and the background out of focus is great. highly recomend

  • Tokina 100mm f/2.8 AT-X 100 AF PRO D

    9 out of 10 points and recommended
    very sharp
    none

    very solid construction, very sharp,not for one who uses auto focusing for macro for everything, Is there a macro
    capable of this?? really disagree with the suggestion that a zoom with an extension would give similar results, actually thats absurd in my opinion. This is a classic macro lens highly recommend. It is very simmular in sharpness to the tamron 90 macro I have used in the past.

  • Tokina 50-135mm f/2.8 AT-X 535 AF PRO DX

    9 out of 10 points and recommended
    sharp, very solid lens
    on the heavy side

    The lens is fast ,very sharp, well built solid professional feel to it. It is however a rather heavy lens and needs to be used at higher shutter speeds or tripod to get all of the sharpness its capable of. It bloke is excellent and is capable of excellent photos. It does require some work on the part of the photographer to get the best results do to the weight and distribution forward on the camera. I used it with a nikon d80, it seems to work better with the d200 as far as fit.
