Item details

This large aperture telephoto zoom lens provides the high quality normally associated with a prime lens. It is the only 100-300 lens in in this price range with a fast, constant aperture of f4 throughout its entire zoom range. The use of Tokina's IF (internal focus) system for the forward lens group allows a minimum focus down to two meters. It also gives one of the fastest autofocus speeds in wide diameter zoom lenses.

The rather old optical design is made of 15 elements in 11 groups including one SD element in the middle group. The lens features 9 aperture blades. Due to the relatively large aperture and the corresponding need for big glass the Tokina is an impressive piece of equipment with a size of 230x83mm and a weight of 1540g. The minimal focus distance is 2m resulting in a max. object magnification of 1:5.6. The lens comes with a dedicated hard case.

Upon first contact you immediately appreciate the exceptionally high build quality of this lens which is typical for many Tokina AT-X lenses. It puts many other manufacturers to shame here. The outer barrel is made of sturdy metal with a crinkle finish. The broad and rubberized zoom and focus rings operate very smooth - the zoom ring is also nicely damped, less so the focus ring. The size of the lens remains constant regardless of the chosen focal length and the front element does not rotate so using a polarizer is no problem. In AF mode the focus ring is coupled to the AF gears so it rotates accordingly - due to the length of the lens this is normally not annoying though. The Tokina features an IF (internal focusing) system but the AF speed is rather slow. It feels as if the motor is a little under-dimensioned for the heavy focusing group. Typical for classic micro-motor drives the AF is a little on the noisy side.
