New Toy: Tokina ATX SD 400mm f5.6
Feb 27, 2013

Yup.  Just paid too much for a pristine 400mm lens on ebay.

Tested it on small birds in my back yard today to see if it was going to be worth keeping. The day was cold, cloudy, with snow and I shot thru by basement storm door glass as usual in this weather.  All shots (shown in next post) were at exactly 11 feet.  Shooting at f8, 1/160 with a wireless bounce flash outside the door.  There WILL be a learning curve using this lens!
