Next PZ lens test report: Tokina AF 300mm f/4 AT-X
I couldn't resist this one <img src='<#EMO_DIR#>/wink.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Wink' />

No doubt a bargain. Unfortunately, a hard to find one...

It's so crinkle-y!
Wow Markus, you're on a roll again. Great and unexpected addition to the review DB! I was under the impression that due to time constraints, you and Klaus are going to stick to mainstream stuff as there's so much to test yet; glad it's not always the case.
Wow, what is really nice is to see very unusual LoCA.... Almost always we see it in the green/magenta variety, but this lens shows very distinct blue/yellow LoCA.
some time back i had a Tokina AT-X 300 f/2.8pro for d2x (a 2.8 plump sized version of the above) - it made lovely pictures -

it was super solid, short and fat and weighted so too, and really attracted attention as a street lens for those close-ups where you particularly want the passing stranger to notice and look at the lens :-) - it was a star in its own right and the heavy-metal screw in lens hood was old school too…. but it flared like a mad thing, so no pointing it near the sun…..

it was very cheap for such a good lens and one i should have kept as a classic

Doubles as a sandpaper bar. <img src='<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Smile' />
