Great Lens and service

Ben Teeples, Amazon
29 December 2013
  • 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. Pictures taken using it have been crisp and clear and we really love its ability to bring in long distance objects for close up inspection. Delivery was on time and the lens arrived in very good and expected condition.

"Great value for the money spent"

R. Wiggins "Just the oldies, please", Amazon

  • Summary: This Tokina 80-400/4.5-5.6 AT-X 840D Telephoto Zoom Lens for Nikon is more than worthy of four (4) stars. I actually "own" this lens as opposed to some of the more casually reviewers who just like to review equipment. I have taken over 500 wildlife photos with this lens and the results are amazing.

Great lens for the price

MetalMariachi, Amazon
5 June 2013
  • Summary: I was looking a walk around lens in the 70-300mm range and came across this one in Andorama's used list at a price I couldn't pass up. This is a solid well-built lens. The only plastic is the lens cap and hood. Short and compact, very light for a lens of this range. The zoom is tight but smooth with no binding anywhere. My copy has absolutely no zoom creep it stays at whatever focal length it's set at pointed up or down.

Tremendous value for a telephoto (80-400mm) with good sharpness and clarity

dankyu, Ebay
6 March 2013
  • Summary: The Tokina 80-400mm telephoto is of tremendous value, giving you range, clarity, and a well designed lens. The focus ring is silky smooth, with a well made grip for the zoom. What really stands out is the heavy, well-built body. For the price, you're getting great range, fairly good sharpness and clarity, and an excellent addition to any photographer's collection. This is a keeper.

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. Fully retracted (80mm focused at infinity) it's a lenscap and half a filter shorter than the Nikon 70-300.
