>> REVIEWS (last updated: 27.10.06)

PopPhotoMag has reviewed the Tokina AT-X 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6 AF D and write;
“With the right focal length range for distance (think wildlife and sports), this lens is unusual for being about the only 80-400mm zoom that isn’t image-stabilized.That makes it much less expensive. If you’re on a limited budget and want a sharp, well-built, tele zoom, give this lens a look, especially if you’re a big filter fan.”

Photozone has reviewed the Tokina AT-X 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6 AF D and writes;
“As for affordable tele zooms there is not much to choose other than Tokina ATX AF 80-400mm f4,5-5,6, it is overall the cheapest, lightest and smallest, but not the sharpest at 400mm. I also strongly believe that this lens is better than most magazine tests state. For non-publishing application this zoom is more than sufficient! It is well-manufactured lens and easy to operate. A great lens for everybody who is looking for a tele-zoom (travel) lens in this focal range. It can not replace the quality of “primes” though. It might be extended in focal length with a 1.4x 3rd party tele-converter and still produce reasonable results (a Minolta 1.4x TC does not physically fit!).”
