Good macro for the price

  • Summary: This was my starter macro lens and for the price I don't think you can beat it. Has its limitations, but for somebody below pro level its great.

Razor sharp and versatile

NCHammer, Amazon
22 May 2013
  • Summary: This lens is extremely sharp wide open, AF is precise and fast (faster than the Nikon 35mm f1.8) macro feature is icing on the cake. Build quality is very high. The only draw back (not really a design flaw more as a result of the 35mm designation). This means lens is literally almost touching the subject at 1:1 macro. This also means the angle of view on a DX body is close to 50mm. I wish it is wider.

Surprisingly effective and sharp APS-C (DX) lens

simkiott, Ebay
3 May 2013
  • Summary: I bought this lens to fall between my 50mm and my 11-16mm lenses (35mm is right in the middle). I use it now as my walk-around lens (it has the field of view of a 56mm lens on a 35mm film camera). I am profoundly surprised by the quality of this lens! The image quality is second to none. The macro abilities are shocking! I always thought you'd need a 180mm Macro to do anything "interesting". But this lens has proven to be a fantastic macro lens!

  • Summary: One of the best prime lenses I have ever owned. Not just because of its sharpness and clarity but because its macro features are incredible. Best walking around lens I have ever used.

Superb, Superb Lens!!!

MrVag, Amazon
13 December 2012
  • Summary: I selected this lens over Nikon 1.8G after reading so many positive reviews about its performance. It turns out, it did not disappoint; this lens is the sharpest lens in my collections besides may Nikon 55mm 1.8G. Construction is very solid and the bokeh is pleasing to the eyes. At F2.8, the baby is sharper than the Nikon 35mm 1.8G at F4. The Nikon is no contest for this Tokina but the Nikon does have slightly higher clarity in the coloring.

Great Deal from Warehouse Deal, Nice metal lens.

Alex L Chen, Amazon
25 July 2012
  • Summary: Warehouse deal @ $202 (warehouse inspected, returned item perhaps) is same price as Nikon 35mm 1.8G. Chosen this over Nikon just because I like Tokina quality. NO AF Motor = I do not mind screw drive for long term reliability than electronics. Macro lens that Aperture dropped when near focus. Sharp, no focus lock issue, identical AF speed as my 85mm 1.8AFD. metal lens mount from this warehouse deal showed no difference than new lens, looks un-used.

Lens Design Origin

Amazon Customer, Amazon
15 April 2012
  • Summary: This lens has the same optical design as the $700 "Pentax 35mm Limited". I've shot both, and they're exactly the same. Do not hesitate to buy this lens - excellent across the frame even at f2.8.

Tokina 35mm f2.8 ATX PRO - Nikon

Roy M., Amazon
23 February 2012
  • Summary: I've only had this lens for 2 days and am already wow'd by its capability. The lens is super sharp even at wide open. The macro feature is great although very difficult to get 1:1 because you need to be around 6cm from the subject. Excellent for a portrait lens and decent for macro and close up shots. Very good all around lens in my opinion. Cons: I don't like the way you have to set "auto focus" or "manual focus" on the lens.
