Excerpt: So far I am very happy with this lens. I had researched it before purchasing, and the reviews of it being slow/noisy in autofocus are true, but it isn't a big deal. I like the clutch being the focus ring, but it is a little too easy to change position.
Excerpt: This macro lens is great for taking pictures of my plants, I like the ease of switching to manual focus. You don't have to move the camera or take your hand off the lens to look for the little switch to change between auto and manual.
Excerpt: I first purchased this lens for my beginner camera (the Nikon D90) and used it for six years to shoot everything from small insects to landscapes. I like the lens so much that I recently bought it again for my new Canon 6D.
Excerpt: The Tokina 100mm Macro is well worth the modest expenditure. It is sharp edge to edge with little distortion. The auto focus is quick and accurate and the mechanism to switch to manual focus allows the photographer to keep his eye on the subject. Photos have rich, clean color.
Excerpt: The only con to me so far is that when I focus on a different part of the frame, the composition changes so slightly, but that already is a problem for in PS. I am very happy with the product otherwise.
