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.

"Great value for the money spent"

  • 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

  • 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.

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

  • 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.

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

  • 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.

good lens, slow for action

  • Summary: Realizing that a purchase of a used lens is always risky, I purchased this lens. I have used it for landscape and sports. It is an excellent lens for non-moving objects, sharp in focus with excellent reproduction from the viewfinder.

Practical!

  • Summary: I bought this lens last year and I have been using it since then. I use it virtually indoors and outdoors preferably "sunny". I must admit, I am using my SB800 flash when I am indoor. This lens is a perfect match with the Nikon D300 you can play with the setting you like.

Tokina Af 80-400 on Canon 600D

  • Summary: Fantastic lens for the price,but a bit heavy!. Make sure to lock the zoom while moving. Image quality good, but does tend to seek for focus, especially when the light is fading.

Very Good Lens.

  • Summary: I bought the Tokina 80-400mm f4.5-5.6 AT-X-840D lens from Amazon just after Christmas. I already had a Canon (not L series!) 75-300mm f4-5.6 III Ultrasonic zoom lens (purchased second hand rom Amazon in October last year).
