REVIEW: Tokina Image Quality Test
I’ve had the Tokina for about a week now, but I haven’t had a chance to really go out and shoot with it due to crappy weather and busy schedule. But while I’m stuck home I put together a quick and dirty centre image sharpness comparison. For first impressions, click here.
Wide open the Tokina performed quite well, at certain focal length, the tokina performed better than my Nikkor 17-55 f/2.8. Once stopped down the Tokina is pretty sharp, but it seems I did have a few particular cases of blurriness (namely at 13mm f/2.8, 16mm f/3.5 and 14 f/5.6). I will re-take these to make sure it wasn’t an error on my part.
All the shots were taken on a tripod in manual with sb800 as the main light. Below are the links to the centre crop comparison images.
More tests to come in the next couple weeks. Going up to NYC soon, so more real life tests.
