Tokina 28-70mm f/2.8 AT-X 287 AF PRO SV review by dugong5pm
Review Date: 10/13/2012 Would you recommend the product? Yes | Total Spent: $350.00| Rating: 8 

 
Pros: feels like a pro lens, sharp
Cons: none for the price

I found it for $350 used. I think it was quite a bargain. This lens doesn't feel cheap at all. In fact, it's mostly made out of metal parts. IQ is good, very acceptable images wide open. I've got mine for the Sony alpha version, AF is ok, though might seems a lil bit noisy. I bought this lens to replace my 18-70 lenskit, and it's totally worth it.

Tokina 28-70mm f/2.8 AT-X 287 AF PRO SV review by cycle_tourist
Review Date: 11/17/2006 Would you recommend the product? Yes | Total Spent: $340.00| Rating: 8 

 
Pros: Large constant aperture. Low price. Well built. Good image quality for the price.
Cons: Heavy. More money can buy you better quality.

I bought this lens to go with my D50 because
a) I wanted a fast full frame zoom that could also be used with my FM2n s
b) It was cheap enough


The image quality has been better on the D50 than I expected. It can be a bit soft wide open, but then so if you want to be critical can an AIS 50mm f1.4. The built quality feels excellent though I've not dropped it to test.
