Tokina AT-X 100mm f/2.8 PRO D Macro Lens for Nikon AF Digital and Film Cameras

Tokina AT-X 100 PRO D lens for digital and film SLR cameras. The AT-X M100 PRO D is a new macro lens capable of life-sized (1:1) reproduction at 11.8 in. (30 cm). The lens' multi-coating have been re-engineered to match the highly reflective silicon based CCD and CMOS sensors in today's digital SLR cameras, while the optics still give full coverage and excellent sharpness on 35mm film. The AT-X M100 PRO D also has a very convenient focus limiter switch that can lock the focus out of the closes focus making it focus faster when used as a moderate telephoto or portrait lens. Other features of the AT-X M100 PRO D are: Tokina One Touch Focus Clutch Mechanism for fast easy switching between manual and Auto focus. 55mm non-rotating filter thread for use with macro ring flashes and special effects filters.

Customer feedback:

1. Got this lens about a month ago and I am thrilled with it. Razor sharp and 1st rate build quality. Tokina really hit a homerun with this one. Focus ring (you'll always be using that in macro shots) action is smooth and nicely damped. Just for kicks, I tested the Tokina lens against my $650+ Nikkor 18-200mm VR (@100mm), in a "real world" picture and the Tokina proved why primes are best. As a macro lens or just a short telephoto, you can't beat it! So much so I bought another Tokina :)

2. I read all the reviews on this and those other to compare to it & it seemed all advice said this was the better lense! I am happy with the purchase & know as soon as spring hits it will be used all the time! The lense is sturdy & well made & I think the performance will match!
