Tokina RMC 300 5.6

Last week I took a box full of old lenses out of the cupboard and used the Tokinas for the first time (see for the 24mm and for the 500 mirror).

The Tokina RMC 300 5.6 is of course not fast, but very nicely build, light weight and smoothly focused. Focusing on the standard K10d is easy. I am quite impressed by the optical quality, although it is clearly no apo lens and probably behind the pentax 300 versions, I still like it. The only con is the 4.5 meter / 15 feet minimum distance. Very nice bokeh.

Here some pictures from the garden and the bushes next to our house; everything shot with the K10d, 2sec. self timer @ 100 ISO:


#1 @at 100%


# 3 strange autumn fruit in the tree...



#5 corner at 100% - bad behaviour when shot against the light



#7 at 100%
at 100%

#8 same spot with the Tokina RMC 24mm

Some more 24mm
