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

  • 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.
  • Pros: Compact size, Light weight for a 400mm, Excellent lens hood design
  • Cons: Resolution at 400mm, Chromatic Aberrations at 400mm, Slow auto-focus, Non-removable tripod collar can get in the way when zooming

Lens Test: Tokina AT-X 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6 AF D

  • Excerpt: HANDS ON : With all-metal construction and a heavy, rugged feel, it has a nonremovable tripod collar and a zoom lock that holds it at its most compact size for transport. Its new felt-lined lenshood incorporates a spring-loaded "PL Assist" wheel that allows you to reorient lensmounted filters without removing the hood. The zoom action is stiff; the manual focusing action seems underdamped.

  • 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. On stopping down the lens to f/8-f/11 we are able to work at 400 mm and get effects which are quite presentable e.g. in internet photo galleries.
  • 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.

  • Excerpt: Klasyczna lornetka porropryzmatyczna produkowana przez Polskie Zakłady Optyczne w latach 60, 70 i 80tych. Była wytwarzana głównie na potrzeby wojska i w sumie wyprodukowano kilkadziesiąt tysięcy egzemplarzy, wytwarzając średnio około 1500 sztuk rocznie.
  • Pros: bardzo solidne wykonanie, mała koma i astygmatyzm, dobra sprawność optyczna, duży zakres rozstawu okularów, pryzmaty dobrej jakości
  • Cons: bardzo żółty obraz, duża dystorsja i nieostrość na brzegu pola, brak wyjścia statywowego
