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

    9 out of 10 points and recommended
    sharp ,nice working range,cheap
    the focusing starts hunting at times

    i got this instead of a nikon mainly because i couldnt afford a nikon! but i havent had any regrets getting this lens. build quality is good, more favourable than other 3rd party lens. it's sharp as expected from a macro but focusing is kind of slow(as with most macros too) it's a good makeshift portrait lens too. the push button to switch from af to mf can be handy at times. overall, i'll recommend this to anyone!

  • Tokina 80-200mm f/2.8 AT-X 828 AF PRO

    9 out of 10 points and recommended
    slow af,weight

    image quality is good, build quality is excellent as expected of a tokina, sharp on most f stops, might be a lil soft wide open. its heavy(but thats because its build like a tank) but can get used to it.

    af would be the biggest con in this lens. its not slow but abit hard if u do sports. the af/mf switch is abit hard to use as well
