  • Tokina 28-70mm f/2.8 AT-X 287 AF PRO SV

    8 out of 10 points and recommended
    Large constant aperture. Low price. Well built. Good image quality for the price.
    Heavy. More money can buy you better quality.

    I bought this lens to go with my D50 because
    a) I wanted a fast full frame zoom that could also be used with my FM2n s
    b) It was cheap enough

    The image quality has been better on the D50 than I expected. It can be a bit soft wide open, but then so if you want to be critical can an AIS 50mm f1.4. The built quality feels excellent though I've not dropped it to test.
