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


I own one, and although i can use it for some aplication, it is definetely a bad lens

It have a very pronouced Purple fringing on 2,8 at most situations that you have a moderate level of contrast. And in general, it have a blueish color cast on both mine K10d an K5 bodies.

Of course, i could have get a really bad copy, so if you could get it and test it, it would be better.

Other things that might annoy you is that Af is somewhat slow, and i can't get it focus pin sharp, even with af adjust +10 on K5. But if focus is right, it really is sharp, even at 2.8

Try this pics. Those are the better i could get with the lens.

One more thing: i get mine on ebay, and couldn't test or return the lens. Very sad
