Great Lens and service

Ben Teeples, Amazon

  • Summary: I choose one star less than a perfect 5 because there was no manual included with the lens. Not being familiar with this type of lens and its capabilities would have made one very useful.

Disappointed

Richard Chapman, Amazon
16 January 2013
  • Summary: This lens had a good write-up but I have been very disappointed with it. It produces blurred pictures, it's movement feels "gritty" and negative and it does not focus well. I guess you get what you pay for in the end of the day!

Good lens, but think about what you're looking for

Christopher, Amazon
9 December 2011
  • Summary: Recently got this lens, and started playing with it. It's a good-looking lens, but I would think hard about what you need before you buy it. Granted, that's true for any lens, but: In terms of the initial appearance, this is a very solid lens; heavier than a Nikon consumer lens of the same size.

80mm-400m Tokina zoom f/4.5-5.6

Chris, Amazon
10 February 2010
  • Summary: I am a devoted Tokina customer! I have had negative experiences with Tameron and stay away from them. I am a sports photographer and having a lens that is well built and has quick performance is utmost for my profession. Tokina are excellent lens and most of the lens I own are Tokina.

Eh, don't expect too much.

somedude74, Amazon
29 January 2010
  • Summary: I had this lens for about two weeks and tried very hard to like it but just didn't. I have the Tokina 11-16, which I really like, so I decided to give this a try. Admittedly, cost was a big factor since the Canon 100-400 was a long way off in terms of finances.

One compact beauty with strong IQ.

Paul Johnson, Amazon
20 November 2009
  • Summary: I've owned this lens for about 6 months now and continue to be amazed at the image quality from this super compact beauty. In fact I owned the Canon 100-400L at the same time so have a great basis of comparison. AF speed is the same for both.

This is better than the price

Sunshine Joe, Amazon

  • Summary: This is not a technical review. Just my personal observations. I've been taking pictures since I was 21 -- Pentax Spotmatic and then Canon F-1. I'm not a professional but I think I know what a good image looks like. I purchased this lens with some trepidation.
