Tokina 24-200mm AT-X 242 AF

8232atx242af
Review Date: Feb 23, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 8 

Pros: Sharp, contrasty good colors, Lightweight compact and well built
Cons:
Focus somtimes hunts. I often have to move the zoom a tiny little bit back to get focus lock.

I bought this lens after reading about it here on Fredmiranda. I wanted one compact travel lense.

This lens has really surpriced me by being sharp, contrasty on all its focal lenghts, and very well built. I have to admit that most of my pictures taken with it are on F8.0. I still have to try it more on brighter settings. But so far I really like it for what I bought it for. NO REGRETTS.

I also have 17 40, 70 200 2.8 and the 100 400IS. This lense is not as fast focusing as these lenses but as a travel lens it does excellent job.

Im thinking about subscribeng for FM gallery and then I will post some pictures.
