    Excellent lens for the price!, April 2, 2010

    This review is from: Tokina 35mm f/2.8 AT-X PRO DX Macro Lens for Canon Digital SLR Cameras (Electronics)

    I was all set to buy Canon’s 60mm f/2.8 macro…but I was hesitant because I really wanted something in the 30-50mm range that I could double up with as a portrait lens. I didn’t even know this lens existed until I randomly stumbled upon it at POTN….and the rest, as they say, is history.

    For the price, the quality of photos is excellent on my 40D. Like most macro primes, it is excellent wide-open (f/2.8).

    It’s a true 1:1 macro….but the short focal length means you’ll have a really tough time using 1:1 in the field (without a macro flash attachment). If you are really serious about macro shots, you may want to look at a 100mm or 150mm focal length macro (giving you more space between lens and subject). But I plan to use this lens a lot as a portrait lens as well as close ups, this is not a big problem. Just understand that a 35mm macro does bring some limitations….but it’s perfect for what I wanted.

    If you’re use to Canon ring-motor auto-focus (and every other lens I own with AF have the Canon ring motors!), then the slower focus speed will take some getting use to. The range limiter helps, and the AF/MF switch is pretty easy to engage/disengage. MF using the live view works very well.

    Build is excellent. Not quite L-quality….but then what is for the price?

    All and all….well done, Tokina.

    This review is from: Tokina 35mm f/2.8 AT-X PRO DX Macro Lens for Canon Digital SLR Cameras (Electronics)

    I’ve owned this lens for close to three months now and am extremely pleased with its performance.

    I was looking for a prime in the normal range that would give me sharper pictures than my walk around zoom on my 40D. Canon’s 35 1.4L would have fit the bill nicely, but at 5 times the price of this Tokina it was a bit out of my budget. It’s hard to find reviews of this Tokina, but the ones I found were positive so I decided to take a chance.

    What I like
    – Very solid, well-built feel – It has a lot of metal in the build and just a little heft to it.
    – Tack sharp, even wide open
    – Nice bokeh
    – Fairly fast
    – Focuses accurately
    – Macro capabilities

    The tradeoffs
    – Slow focusing – if it has to hunt for focus it can take a long time to go through its full range. It does have a limiter switch you can use if you are not shooting extreme close-ups that speeds it up.
    – The auto/manual focus is handled with a push/pull clutch ring instead of a switch. It’s easy to use, but tends to go into my camera bag set on auto and come out set on manual. I have to remember to check that it’s set back to auto focus when I take it out of the bag.
    – Not as fast as some prime lenses with similar focal lengths

    It is a versatile lens. I’ve been very happy with the results when using it on landscapes, portraits of my kids, and macro shots of flowers in my yard. You do have to have the lens almost right up against the subject for macro, but the results are sharp.

    I was initially hesitant to buy a non-Canon lens, but am very happy with this Tokina. The image quality is superb, and the build quality surprised me.
