Product Description

Tokina AT-X 100 PRO D lens for digital and film SLR cameras. The AT-X M100 PRO D is a new macro lens capable of life-sized (1:1) reproduction at 11.8 in. (30 cm). The lens' multi-coating have been re-engineered to match the highly reflective silicon based CCD and CMOS sensors in today's digital SLR cameras, while the optics still give full coverage and excellent sharpness on 35mm film. The AT-X M100 PRO D also has a very convenient focus limiter switch that can lock the focus out of the closes focus making it focus faster when used as a moderate telephoto or portrait lens. Other features of the AT-X M100 PRO D are: Tokina One Touch Focus Clutch Mechanism for fast easy switching between manual and Auto focus. 55mm non-rotating filter thread for use with macro ring flashes and special effects filters.

It has great clarity and color.
Thinliner
It's a solid, reliable product from a company with a long track record of producing high-quality lenses, and in value-for-money terms it's the best deal in its class.

My second test was shooting eyes...once again, great detail.

I have used Tokina lenses for several years and they have always been more than satisfactory. Tokinas are built like tanks, with solid metal alloy bodies that make Canon's top of the line L-series lenses look cheap in comparison. This makes them rather heavy, but I don't find them uncomfortable.

This 100mm f/2.8 macro lens is a great value. The differences between it and the more expensive Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM Lens (non-IS version) are minor at best; most significantly, the Tokina extends when focusing, whereas the Canon does not. At the short distances often involved in macrophotography (focusing on objects only a few inches away), extending the lens can be a minor annoyance, requiring you to pull the camera back a bit to keep the framing consistent, but you get used to it. (Competing lenses from Sigma and Tamron also extend while focusing.)

I have the Tokina mounted on a Canon 5D Mark II at the moment and it's doing a great job. Auto-focus is accurate, if somewhat slow compared to Canon's macro lens, but with the AF limit enabled this disadvantage is mitigated. The images it produces are razor-sharp, with good color and contrast, whether the subject is a bug a few inches away or distant buildings.

All in all, I'm happy with this lens. It's a solid, reliable product from a company with a long track record of producing high-quality lenses, and in value-for-money terms it's the best deal in its class.

Fabulous lens! It's sharp as a tack, crystal clear and easy to use. I put on my camera right out of the box and now hardly use my other lenses. The AF limiter switch is a nice feature and the easability of going from AF to MF mode is also nice.

I would recommend this lens to anyone who wants an affordable macro. If you want check out some pictures I took with it:

Just purchased this lens and was very impressed with it. Shot a few macros and the quality is great. I looked very hard at the Canon 100 F2.8 Macro but didn't like the price.It wasn't a hole lot more than this lens but I'm in it to save money and still get some good quality. These days it seems like you have to pay an arm and a leg to get anything good. So I'm really glad I found this glass. I love to shoot macro and this lens can give me great images. It has great clarity and color. It's very impressive to me. I've spent almost $5000.00 on Canon glass in the last two years and I'm just photo hobbiest. I know you are saying why spend that much for a hobby but this may someday be a full time hobby for me. Get this lens, you won't be sorry for what you get. I will post some images soon I took with this glass.

I'm a professional photographer using Nikon gear and have some serious Nikon glass. I shoot a lot of headshots for a company and use a D700 with the Tokina 100mm and D3 with the Nikon 135mm DC. Typically, I shoot several with each camera/lens setup to get a variety of looks.

In practice, the Tokina lens is the perfect lens for this use. It is sharp as anything I use. After I load all the shots into Lightroom to process them, you have to look at the shot details to know which lens you used, assuming that the image is framed the same.

This lens gets a lot of play in my bag along with my usual Nikon 14-24, 24-70 and even the new 70-200 VRII.

The focal length is perfect for what I need it for while using the full-frame D700 and D3.

Highly recommended.

I have been wanting a Macro lens, particularly a 100mm f/2.8 lens for quite some time now. And when my mind was made up to purchase the Canon 100 mm lens, I ended up going for the Tokina.

I have never heard of the company before but I was told by a Japanese associate about a company in his city that made quality lenses and the company was Tokina. Did my research online for those who were able to use the lens and the reviews were stellar. I then look online, especially on flickr and surprised to see there was quite a fanbase for the lens and the pictures were absolutely gorgeous. Not just Macro shots but also portrait shots. Reading that this it focuses 1:1.

I was impressed! But I was not sold just yet...I'm a guy who does a lot of research and I always figured that there is Canon, then Sigma and then Tamron lenses... but Tokina? And then after months of research and reading user reviews diligently in English and in Japanese, I was convinced. This is a company that cares about quality and its fanbase are just as supportive.

I was sold!

My first test was shooting skippers and butterflies and what a great feeling to not just see the little hairs of the insects but then to see the detail.

My second test was shooting eyes...once again, great detail.

Then I started shooting my usual contributions to a watch forum where I shoot close ups of my manual and digital watches and the detail was magnificent.

And then today, I put it through other tests...more eyes, ants, action figure dioramas and the colors were great, the bokeh was also great! This lens literally left me speechless.

And from this day forward, I am now sold on Tokina products and will definitely look into buying more lens from them.
