  • Tokina 300mm f/2.8 AT-X 300 AF PRO

    10 out of 10 points and recommended
    Sharp, Solid, quick auto focus, great bokeh

    I found a guy on the internet who bought one of these lenses second hand and he had amazing shots.

    The great thing about this lens is it's around a quarter to a third of the cost of an equivalent Nikon or Canon lens and it does an awesome job.

    Sadly Tokina don't make these any more, but have seen a number on places like ebay which is where I bought mine.

    I use this lens for sports and action photography and also birds, animals and it's a great lens to take portraits with awesome bokeh around 30 yards (25 metres) away.

    I sometimes use a 1.4 teleconverter which turns it in to a 420mm at f4 which is fantastic.

    Highly recommend to someone who can't afford the Nikon or Canon equivalent which can be thousands of $$$ more.
