Test: Einzeltest: Tokina AT-X 17-35mm f/4 Pro FX Lens
Zitat: Pros: + Very sharp when stopped down
+ Good build
+ Some moisture sealing
+ Low CA and distortion
Cons: - Performance at maximum aperture could be better
- Not much difference in price between this and the Canon alternative (Nikon users may see more appeal in this lens)
For a lens costing around £600, I would normally expect better performance at maximum aperture. Saying that, the sharpness that is possible with the lens stopped down comes close to redeeming this lens.
If you intend to use this lens stopped down much of the time, require a filter thread and don´t want to spend more than £600, then this could be the lens for you. If, however, you can see yourself using apertures brighter than f/5.6, then this lens is probably best avoided.
