Latest Review Posted Tokina 90mm f2.5 AT-X Macro
I owned this lens (and still do actually) on my film Olympus. It never left the camera. On full frame, it was a really wonderful portrait lens as well as a macro lens. On aps-c Pentax, the macro is still wonderful but the portrait less so. Nonetheless it is one of my favorite lenses and certainly the best manual focus lens I own. On macro and minimum focus distance there is a razor thin area in focus and the rest is the dreamy bokeh the lens is famous for. Here are a two examples of that: https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4302/35826574300_2993f0965a_h.jpgIMGP5388.jpg by David Miley, on Flickr https://farm9.staticflickr.com/8869/29167970640_63a815f6a6_h.jpgWoodland sunflower early bloom by David Miley, on Flickr Stopping down a bit and backing up shows off the sharpness and normal rendering.. https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1757/40906881640_80c887488b_h.jpgIMGP7053-Edit.jpg by David Miley, on Flickr https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4314/35499155324_1a2aa38758_h.jpgIMGP5505.jpg by David Miley, on Flickr This lens will not fit everyone's style, but it fits mine. I'd love to try it on a K1, but that may take awhile.
