| p.1 #1 · Anyone shot with the Tokina at-x 28-70 or 28-80 2.8? |
So i just moved to FX (added a D3 to my stable), i've always been a zoom shooter (weddings), although, most of my FX lenses are primes, so i'm getting used to shooting with primes more, and i love, repeat, LOVE the sharpness and CONSISTENCY i get with primes...even cheap primes....way more consistent than my 17-55 could ever dream of being....anyway, right now i have a 24 2.8, 35 1.8 (that i kinda like the look of on FX), a 50 1.8, 85 1.8, a 70-210 f4 (now that it focus FAST on the D3, it's far more useful than on a DX body), and a Tokina 11-16 that works as a sweet 16mm prime on my D3....
Anyway, i wanna get an FX normal zoom, i'd rather not spend the coin on a 24-70 or nikon 28-70.....but for about $300-400 i can pick up a tokina 28-70 2.8...i mean, i know it's a tough lens, built really well, Angenieux design, but i'm just wondering if anyone here has used, or currently uses one, that can weigh in for me....My 17-55 is SHARP, but it's just not consistent....like sometimes it'll be deadly sharp at 55 wide open, and then sometimes it'll be a touch soft....at 17 it's pretty much sharp all the time....just wondering how the tokina could stack up....
