  • Excerpt: Expert lens reviewer, Gary Wolstenholme tests the Tokina AT-X M100 Pro Macro lens. Will it cope with the demanding lifestyle of a photographer? This 100mm Macro from Tokina cost £348, which is around half of what some manufacturers charge for their telephoto macro lenses. Independent lens manufacturers Sigma and Tamron also produce similar lenses, with the Sigma 105mm costing £379 and the Tamron 90mm costing around £345, the Tokina is competitively priced.
  • Pros: Good resolution performance, Excellent build quality, Good value for money
  • Cons: Reduced contrast when shooting against strong sources of light, Slow autofocus

  • Excerpt: Kot vsako podjetje ima tudi Tokina svojo zanimivo zgodovino. Pod lastnim imenom Tokina jih poznamo šele od leta 1970. A že prej je prišlo do zanimivih dejanj in zaèetek je moèno povezan z Nikonom. Od leta 1959, ko je Nikon s kamero F moèno spremenil mišljenje kakšna naj bo foto kamera in naèin fotografiranja, so že tudi zaèeli razvijati prve zoom objektive.

  • Excerpt: It doesn't have an in-built motor which means it will not autofocus with Nikon D-SLRs that don't have their own in-built AF motor, such as the D40, D60, D3000, D3100, D5000 or D5100. With our Nikon-fit test lens attached to the D7000, it had a strong, solid feel in the hand, weighing 540g. It employs a push/pull focusing system to switch from AF to MF.

Tokina AF 100mm f/2.8 AT-X Pro D macro (Canon) - Review / Test Report

photozone.de
17 April 2008
  • Conclusion: The Tokina AF 100mm f/2.8 AT-X Pro D macro is a very good alternative to the high priced 100mm macro lenses offered by the genuine manufacturers as well as the other members of the third-party gang. It offers a very high quality optical performance with a great resolution, a smooth and buttery bokeh (out-of-focus blur), non-existent distortions and very well controlled vignetting. Minor flaws are higher-than-average CAs and a quite slow AF speed.

Tokina AF 100mm f/2.8 AT-X Pro D macro - Review / Test Report

photozone.de
16 April 2008
  • Conclusion: The Tokina AF 100mm f/2.8 AT-X Pro D macro is a real alternative to the high priced 100mm macro lenses offered by the genuine manufacturers (and the other members of the third-party gang). At around 350-400 EUR/US$ the Tokina costs significantly less but it still offers a comparable optical performance in a solid and durable package. Minor flaws are higher-than-average CAs and a quite slow AF speed.

AT-X M100 PRO AF D 100 mm f/2.8

  • Conclusion: Conclusion may be very short. So praised by us Tamron 2.8/90 achieved a sound competitor. Both lenses give great quality of image and we will be satisfied with both of them. Tokina has a slight advantage when it comes to the quality of image with maximum aperture and when working against bright light. Tamron, on the other hand, is characteristic of better autofocus work. The choice is very difficult, especially that the price of both instruments is similar.
  • Cons: average work of autofocus and accuracy

Recensione: Tokina AF 100mm f/2.8 AT-X PRO D macro su Nikon D3 e D7000

saggiamente.com
28 April 2011
  • Conclusion: Tokina ha realizzato un obiettivo macro dalle prestazioni eccellenti, in un corpo robusto e con un prezzo veramente allettante. Migliore in costruzione e materiali rispetto il Tamron AF 90mm SP Di macro f/2.8 e praticamente paragonabile al Sigma AF 105mm EX DG macro. A livello qualitativo la resa di tutte queste lenti è molto simile, si tratta di scegliere in relazione ad alcune caratteristiche peculiari del corpo o del prezzo di mercato (che comunque è allineato).

  • Summary: Podsumowanie może być bardzo krótkie. Tak chwalony przez nas uprzednio Tamron 2.8/90 zyskał bardzo solidnego konkurenta. Oba obiektywy dają świetnej jakości obrazy i z każdego z nich będziemy zadowoleni. Tokina ma lekką przewagę jeśli chodzi o jakość obrazu przy maksymalnym otworze względnym oraz przy pracy pod ostre światło, Tamron zaś charakteryzuje się lepszą pracą autofokusa. Wybór więc bardzo trudny tym bardziej, że cena obu instrumentów jest bardzo podobna.
  • Pros: świetna jakość obrazu zarówno w centrum jak i na brzegu kadru,, dobra korekcja aberracji chromatycznej,, zerowa dystorsja,, znikomy astygmatyzm,, mała koma,, niewielkie winietowanie,, dobra praca pod ostre światło,, wysokiej jakości obudowa i wykonanie.
  • Cons: przeciętna praca i celność autofokusa.
