Lens Test: Tokina 50-135mm f/2.8 Pro DX AF


For full-frame film shooters, one of the most popular lenses is the highspeed 70-210mm zoom, suited to most typical photo subjects. No surprise, then, that lensmakers are now offering a spate of (approximately) 50-150mm digital-only zooms, the...

Tokina 50-135mm f/2.8 Pro DX AF Review


A great range for 1.5x crop-factor sensors, the Tokina 50-135 f/2.8 fits right in where the 70-200 range used to be on 35mm SLRs. I love my Sigma 70-200 f/2.8, but sometimes I sure wish I could get that extra 20mm that this new Tokina offers. Check...

Tokina 50-135mm f/2.8 AT-X 535 AF PRO DX review by korthaj


Wanted a smaller 70-200 f2.8 type lens and this one felt like a good compromise. The range 50 to 135 suits me better for general photography and portraits, this thing doesnt scare people because it doesnt look big. The 50-135 is compact, very well made...

Tokina 50-135mm f/2.8 AT-X 535 AF PRO DX review by Mac_In_FL


I love this lens. This lens should be in everyone's bag if their camera uses an APS-C sensor. I do not believe there is a better quality lens in this zoom range and at this price point.

Sharp pleasing colors. Excellent build. Useful range

Non-removable tripod mount. Prone to some flare, CA

Tokina 50-135mm f/2.8 AT-X 535 AF PRO DX review by wingdo


Having moved from film to DX, this is a great lens as it is the equiv angle of view of a 70-200. Incredibly sharp, pleasing colors, no barrel extension. Tokina's famous build quality.

incredibly sharp, solid construction, perfect zoom for DX

non-removable tripod mount

Tokina 50-135mm f/2.8 AT-X 535 AF PRO DX review by china2k


My crosspost: Hi, got this awesome lens this week, based on SLRGear, FM, Optychne, and Photozone reviews. Many thanks to all, the recommendations are just fair!

build quality, zoom & focus fings handling, sharpness, focus range, bokeh blur

close focus too long (1m could be better for e.g. 50mm lens), focus limit bang sound, a bit softer at 135/2.8

One of the best lens on my 30D (like a 70-200/4 L IS)

Tokina 50-135mm f/2.8 AT-X 535 AF PRO DX review by climber


The lens is absoloutly astounding. Image sharpness above f3.5 is comperable to prime lenses (canon 50mm f1.4). Focusing is very precise and the build quality is comparable to Canon L series (i have a 200mm F2.8L prime).

Excellent sharpness and IQ, superb buil quality, accurate focus

Tokina 50-135mm f/2.8 AT-X 535 AF PRO DX review by ptys


Nice lens overall with great optics. Beautiful for portraits. As they say, built like a tank. Nicely damped rings, solid metal construction. It's sharp wide open until about 100mm. Towards the end starts losing contrast and sharpness at 2.8, but this...

sharp, contrasty, well built, nice flower hood

ghosting, flare, AF in canon mount, tripod collar doesn't come off

Product Specifications

The new Tokina AT-X 535 PRO DX lens is a 50-135 with a fast constant aperture of f/2.8. This lens gives digital photographers the similar to the industry standard 80-210 telephoto zoom lens in 35mm camera terms but is much more compact and lightweight. The lens features SD glass lens elements to correct for chromatic aberrations and focuses all colors accurately at the film plane, making the AT-X 535 PRO DX an APO lens. The front element has a newly formulated WP or "Water Proof" optical coating on the glass. This new coating makes marks such as spots left by water or finger-prints much easier to clean than standard multi-coating. Other features include a built-in tripod collar and One-touch focus clutch mechanism for fast switching between auto focus and manual focus modes.
