REVIEW: Tokina AT-X 840 AF D 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6

9 June 2009
  • Excerpt: This super-telephoto offering from Tokina costs £572, which makes it amongst the cheapest 400mm lenses available, as well as the smallest and lightest. Sigma offer a 120-400mm zoom, which costs around £607 and benefits from silent focusing and Optical Stabilisation.

  • Cons: Resolution at 400mm, Chromatic Aberrations at 400mm, Slow auto-focus, Non-removable tripod collar can get in the way when zooming

  • Conclusion: My impressions concerning the work with the Tokina are very positive. In the 80-300 mm range it performs really well and this range allows many practical applications.

  • Cons: weak image quality at 400 mm,, huge chromatic aberration in the 300-400 mm range,, minimum focus from as far as 2.5 meters,, distinct astigmatism at longer focal lengths.
