    No lens is a good lens if the photographer is crap.

    Good lenses complement a good photographer to produce good results.
    Good lenses do not turn a crap photographer to produce good results.

    What's the point of taking brand, technology and comparing lenses like u're buying some digital stuff?

    Buy what u need and require and use it.

    WELL I GUESS all your comments are right.

    but they are people who only beleives that tokina lens are beter thna others....
    maybe they have compared certain tokina lens with other brand and tokina turns out better in the test.

    thanks.

    Say...if I were to tell you that Tokina was started by a group of engineers who were working for Nikon producing those famous monster sharp lens, would that change your perspective? heheh

    And that is true too hor..not making that up

    i used to own a set of tokia lenses... the af 193 19-35 3.5-4.5, the atx pro 828 80-200 f2.8 and the atx pro 2 28-70 f2.6-2.8

    my end assessment...the built of the tokinas are great.... i'm truely happy with that...

    but only the pro2 seems to give good quality images... nice and sharp lens...with pretty ok af-speed..... and yet it seems that this lens is built more for film than for digital...i get much better photos from this on film...till now i keep it as my general film lens.... for its excellent built and image quality

    the 80-200 loses out to the rest in its range in terms of image sharpness and focusing speed...and the 19-35 really lacking in image quality....

    these are my general assessments for nikon mount only..

    cheerios

    Carl Zeiss is about to introduce ZF, a new range of interchangeable lenses for Nikon SLR cameras, both analog and digital. ZF lenses bring the Carl Zeiss image quality to the Nikon SLR camera system.........

    http://www.dcviews.com/press/Zeiss-ZF-Nikon-F.htm

    So should the ZF lense be the best 3rd party lense?
    Even better than Nikon prime lense.
