Tokina AF 35mm f/2.8 AT-X Pro DX (Nikon) - Review / Test Report

 

The Tokina AT-X M35 Pro DX is a very good macro lens, that also works well as a normal prime for those who don't need very large apertures. The lens delivers very good to excellent sharpness straight from its maximum aperture.

Tokina AT-X M35 PRO DX 35 mm f/2.8

 

The turn of the year 2007/2008 brought the release of the twin lenses: Tokina AT-X M35 Pro DX 35 mm F/2.8 and Pentax smc DA 35 mm F/2.8 Macro Limited. Considering the cooperation of the two companies, we supposedly have to do with the same optical...

a solid barrel ; excellent middle-of-the-frame image quality ; very good image quality at the corners of the frame (except for F/2.8) ; well-controlled chromatic aberration ; small distortion ; very well-controlled astigmatism ; not too big vignetting...

slightly disappointing image quality at the side of the frame at maximum aperture ; audible and slow autofocus

Tokina AT-X M35 PRO DX 35 mm f/2.8

 

Perfect value for money, sharper than my Nikkor 50mm 1,8D.

Perfect build quality, outstanding brightness, sharpness and color rendition

Focus Clutch too stiff. No matter how much sense there is to shoot macro at 35mm (from 2 cm), macro works good

Tokina AT-X M35 PRO DX 35 mm f/2.8

 

Superlative lens for the price, outstanding build quality, sharp, good colour rendition, better used for general purpose photography than macro work although you can get excellent results if you work at it (focal length too short for much macro...

Build, optics, price

Ugly (but who cares), 35mm not the best for macro work

Tokina AT-X M35 PRO DX 35 mm f/2.8

 

This lens works best for near macro, as the focus distance at 1:1 is nearly touching the barrel! Because of the "normal" angle of view, I can do about 85% of my shooting with this lens.

Super Sharp. Little to no CA or distortion. High build quality. Very unique macro perspective

Infinity Focus at 5 feet. Focus Clutch takes a little getting used to. Focus can be slow if in "Full" mode--still very much acceptable

Tokina AT-X M35 PRO DX 35 mm f/2.8

 

Possibly my favourite lens.

Very sharpUnique wide macro perspectiveSolid construction (except for the screw issue)

Heavy and a little bulky for a prime.After 8 months of use a screw came loose inside. The barrel is loose and the aperture is sticky. Currently in repair. I've heard nothing but good things, so I'm chocking this one up to bad luck. If it's dead, I'm...
