Summary: This is an outstanding lens with cropped sensor(it gives 70-200mm 24x36 equiv), who can easily be compared with the canon ef-70-200 f2.8, surely not usm, maybe smaller in focal range, but half priced, half sized, half-weighted. From f2.8 It produces realy very nice sharp images all across the focal range, except at 135mm which needs to be closed a bit. Well balanced with medium size bodies ,this lens starts from 50 mm and it can be helpfull at social shooting.

Summary: Купил для Canon 50D. Это очень достойная замена фулфрейм 70-200 объективам. По кнструктиву понравился не меньше, чем Canon'овские L'ки. При этом он зметно меньше и легче вышеупомянутых объективов. По качеству картинки рекомендую профильные сайты.
Summary: Sharp, sharp, sharp like fix. Nice bokeh. Lite. Good balanced. Not very attractive (for criminals). Contrast. Picture is better than 17-55 IS 2.8 Canon on 50mm. AF little bit slow but OK. Sounds good. Sad, that is discontinued, but if you find - real bargain for crop cameras.
Tokina 50-135mm f/2.8 AT-X 535 AF PRO DX review by kaci

Summary: Such a wonderfull lens! Great IQ, ideal focal length at APS-C. Sharpness/bokeh/colours/contrast fantastic! Built like a tank, reliably prized. The AF is accurate but slow. I donÅ¥ get the point why this lens is not more popular? Tokina makes fantastic zooms! I really miss this piece of glass now when switched to FF camera.
Summary: This is an outstanding lens and can usually be found for under $600. Great all purpose lens, and built like a tank. Fits my Nikon DSLR absolutely perfect. I think production has been discontinued, because these have gotten hard to find. Glad I got mine when I did.
