Tokina 300mm f/2.8 AT-X 300 AF PRO review by wmvaux
Review Date: 3/11/2014 Would you recommend the product? Yes | Total Spent: $960.00| Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Sharp, Solid, quick auto focus, great bokeh
Cons: Heavy

I found a guy on the internet who bought one of these lenses second hand and he had amazing shots.


The great thing about this lens is it's around a quarter to a third of the cost of an equivalent Nikon or Canon lens and it does an awesome job.


Sadly Tokina don't make these any more, but have seen a number on places like ebay which is where I bought mine.


I use this lens for sports and action photography and also birds, animals and it's a great lens to take portraits with awesome bokeh around 30 yards (25 metres) away.


I sometimes use a 1.4 teleconverter which turns it in to a 420mm at f4 which is fantastic.


Highly recommend to someone who can't afford the Nikon or Canon equivalent which can be thousands of $$$ more.
