2 shots in a Lens Test (OLD Tokina 70-200)
Posted By: little laker, 07-11-2007, 06:31 PM

I should mention that I got this lens about 5-6 months ago, but never really tried it.
To be perfectly honest I was disapointed because it looks and feels Cheap
However there are 2 features that I really like about it.
1. It's light weight. It's got to be my lightest lens.
2. It's small. It's just a hair longer than the kit lens, and a lot narrower. And did I mention that it's a 70-200mm

Well I finally decided to try it, and what can I say. I'm impressed, and should have been using this lens all along

I've got several more quality pictures, but I like these 2 the best.

The only editing done was a mild crop on both pictures

I paid $50.00 for it from KEH, and I'm glad that I did

The event that I'm photographing un-officially starts tomorrow, so I'm looking forward to using this lens while photographing waist deep in the river (it'll cool me down a little)

Great Bird picture

Are you still really liking the lens? That picture of the bird is really super.

Perhaps it is compression of his files when he posts as attachment. They are indeed soft and look like scanned slides.
