Tokina AT-X 28-85mm f/3.5-f/4.5 Tests - A hidden gem for video!

In a nutshell: Sharp, constant aperture, neutral color zoom from 28-70mm, soft, warm 85mm 2/3 stops darker.

Love this lens and the way it renders skin.

Enjoy!

if you love this lens, you would love the SMC Pentax-M 35-70mm F2.8-3.5

Thanks! I have that one. The far focus distance and tighter range gets it used a lot less though. Might consider selling it. Excellent micro contrast for photos though.

Edit: I also don’t have any use for a push-pull lens. All my zooms are two-touch except for that one and the 45-125.

The Push-Pulls do have one advantage in my experience - all the ones I've tried are Parfocal, making it possible to zoom in without loosing focus during a shot,.. assuming you zoomed in, focused, zoomed out, before hitting record.
