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


Bought to replace canon 70-200 f/4L. Wanted to try a faster lens. Overall it is great. I have found it searches a little in dark situations but I think that is me getting used to it. Built like a tank. Can anybody tell me about the metal shade cover....

Build quality. Fast.

Somewhat heavy. Shade is a pain.

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


Simply one of the best of my Canon lenses. I have been through many in the past 20+ years, and this lense has held up to the test of time. I have watched other lenses hit the market with similar specs, at many times the price, and I have yet to find a...

Fast lense and highly rugged and resiliant construction. Comes with a tripod mount on the lense. Focus ring has solid feel and makes it easy to get to the settings you want. No slop or loose feeling mechanism, as I have experienced over time with more...

People clain a soft f/2.8, but I have not experienced it with mine. I have had mine for many years, but do not see any manufacturing changes since my purchase. The only weakness is from purists who insist only "name brands" can curry their favor....

Of all lenses i have used, this is the one I trust the most. The build quality is superior to everthing I have come across, and it is allways with me on nature shoots.

Build quality and optical performens!

Like every other f 2.8 lens, it's better stoped down to f 4.

The build quality is excellent, solid and you can feel the robustness of it. Optical quality is excellent, especially at F3.5 to F8. F2.8 tend to a little soft but acceptable up to 6R print. Good contrast at all range, and when i hooked this up with a...

Optical sharp at F3.5 to F8, comparable to lens at 2x or 3x its price. Solid, Well build Price, affortable Smooth zoom ring

Some softness in F2.8 but consider the low price, it worth every penny. Manual focus ring is not as smooth Focus hunt especially at low light condition.

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


I bought this lens over 8 years ago and it has been a workhorse. I use the 80-200 more than all my other lenses combined. As a nature,sports, wildlife shooter I use the lens at f/2.8 and get great results. I was going to buy the Nikon 80-200 but 8...

Strong, durable, great optics/sharp, tripod collar, comes with lens hood & case, fast f/2.8, less expensive than Nikon but excellent optics.

Lens hood is plastic, f stop lock button a little small

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


This is a great lens. Very sharp for zoom at this range. It gives good color rendation although the contrast not as high as Sigma (I don't like Sigma contrast because it is too contrasy that it lose a lot of detail. Bokeh is nice. I test this lens with...

Build quality usable f2.8(not really sharp but sharp enough) light weight compare to Sigma Handling and manual focus feeling

Screw in hood type manual/auto focus clush system that you have to turn to the right focus distance before you can switch back to manual focus

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


This isanother review I make here. I am a seroius nature photographer, and I pay for my trips doing weddings and portrats. I use this particular lens for some portraits, and wildlife. I mostly use Bronica GS1 (medium format) for people photography, but...

Build, optics, AF speed with Pentax MZ-S. Some people think that the noisy autofocus must me slow as well. The Canon lenses I own are so quite, but I do not see a measurable difference in the AF speed when I work with my loud Pentax and whisper soft...

Hood is attached to the filters. AF to manual and vice versa swith is difficult to operate.
