    Cons: soft at 2.8, which kinda defeats its main purpose

    Pros: its a lense in a tank!!!! sharpens at f4 and beyond lovely colours plus good bokeh

    Summary: overall its a keeper till one can find better in the same price range, no problems here!!!

    Cons: A little soft @ f-2.8 but Sharpens up nicely around f4. The softness is not a bad thing for portraits! Prone to flare, which ca reduce contrast.

    Pros: Built to last, great manual focus-I use it with a Nikon adapter on my Panny GH1 It's a full frame lens, so can be used on crop cameras as well as full frame.

    Summary: Are ther better lenses, yes, but the Tokina can deliver professional results if you work within it's restrictions.

    Cons: Heavy like a rock! Bad performance at 50mm 2.8

    Pros: Fast, constant f/2.8, comes with case and hood, very solid

    Summary: A great lens for studio or home photography. Too heavy to carry around mainly with a small body or a body without grip. Exceptionally sharp but bad at 50mm f/2,8. It is not as solid as previous models mas it's ok. I had the non "PRO" model, the MKI, the SV and ended with this because it sharper, lighter and faster.
