Tokina 80 - 400 ATX - D f4.5 -5.6

Sold my Tamron 70-200 f2.8 (for the Nikon) and replaced it with the Tokina seeking more focal length.

My gamble was that I was losing the f2.8 capbility (to be fair my uses have changed so probably dont need it anymore) and had read a few reviews stating that the Tokina at 400mm was soft....but some reviews also noted that around f8 it was pretty good. I am relying on the high ISO performance of the D800 to make up for any aperture shortcomings so far as speed is concerned.

You can be the judge. All shots at f7.1 or f8. So far, I am impressed.

ISO 1000. 400mm.

The next four shots range from 400mm through to 80mm ISO 640
