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

Review Date: Jun 18, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 7 

 
Pros: Price Weight/Size (compared to Canons 2.8 offering)
Cons:
Soft Wide (optimal at f/16) Slow AF (comparable or even slower than the old Canon AFD lenses!)

My sample is definitely soft but improves until I get optimum sharpness around f/16. Tested on a tripod (however only tested at 200mm... other focal lengths might show improvement).

However... why buy a f/2.8 lens to use at f/16, esp. as many people shoot at the 200 end most of the time.

However it was cheap (Used) and much less bulk than the Canon equivalent.

An acceptable lens but not great. I may have dud sample...
