Tokina AT-X 840 AF D 80-400 mm f/4.5-5.6

 

Many different zoom lenses for amateur photographers are available on the market – you can even say we are spoiled for choice. The offer starts with cheap 55-200 mm class instruments, then features a bit more expensive 70-300 mm devices and lenses with...

Tokina AT-X 840 AF-II 80-400 mm f/4.5-5.6

 

Very well made [metal] but relatively light. High contrast results and pretty sharp overall. Good hood included.
