Tokina 100mm PRO Lens Silver City NM

Regardless of the great optical performance of this macro lens, technical proficiency is a prerequisite for sharp images at high magnification. I made over 250 images with the Tokina AT-X 100mm f/2.8 PRO D and feel it is suitable for both serious nature photography and as a conventional short telephoto.

Tokina AT-X 100mm f/2.8 PRO D Macro Lens Review

Reader Score: 8.09 (out of 10)
"Although many zoom lenses are labeled as "macro" that designation generally refers only to moderately close focusing ability. With a few exceptions, such zooms are not adequate for a dramatic frame-filling image unless the subject is quite large. (A few tele macro zoom lenses are capable of much higher magnification, however.) On the other hand, true macro lenses can focus extremely close, for very high magnification. And, because they're optimized for great sharpness in extreme close focusing, they can provide superior image quality.

Regardless of the great optical performance of this macro lens, technical proficiency is a prerequisite for sharp images at high magnification. I made over 250 images with the Tokina AT-X 100mm f/2.8 PRO D and feel it is suitable for both serious nature photography and as a conventional short telephoto. This multi-platform lens is a very fine performer. Quite affordable for a 100mm macro with the latest multilayered coating technology, it offers exceptional value. Aside from the high image quality, it's mechanically solid and likely to provide long-term reliability even during extensive field use." ...
