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: by David Miley, on Flickr sunflower early bloom by David Miley, on Flickr Stopping down a bit and backing up shows off the sharpness and normal rendering.. by David Miley, on Flickr 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.
