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

AT-XM100PRO_D
Review Date: Jun 10, 2009 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: Very sharp, good material quality (NOT build quality...see cons)
Cons:
tends to have purple fringing at f/2.8, build quality

Unfortunately I love the lens, although I had a few problems.

First sample was changed by Tokina due to aperture control problems. After that I had no problems for about two years. But now the second sample has a problem wit the focus clutch mechanism. In front of the golden ring you have some kind of cap, and when you change from AF to MF and back it loosens a little bit. It can't fall out but nevertheless it's quite annoying!
