Tokina AT-X 280AF PRO

In short

The Tokina AT-X 280 AF PRO is a professional versatile zoom lens for full frame cameras. Possesses super quality case.

The image quality is controversial, has extraordinary artistic characteristics, but suffers from poor sharpness at open apertures.

Unlike other fast universal lenses of the 24 (28) -70 / 2.8 class, the Tokina AT-X 280 AF PRO attracts with an additional 5-10 mm at the long end. But do not forget that the longest is still Tamron SP AF Aspherical LD ​​[IF] 28-105mm 1: 2.8 276D.

History

There are a fairly large number of such lenses from Tokina. The difficulty in identifying a particular instance is due to the fact that some of them are very similar in appearance, and lenses were marked differently for different countries. For some lenses (depending on the target country), the maximum aperture F / 2.6 for 28 mm focal length.

The evolution of Tokina Class 24 (28) -70 (80) /2.8 (2.6-2.8) lenses:

  1. Tokina AT-X AF 28-70mm 1: 2.8 - orange border near the front lens, filter diameter 72 mm, focusing is not internal. Window focusing distances. The name on the box is Tokina AT-X 270 AF.
  2. Tokina AT-X PRO AF 28-70mm 1: 2.6-2.8 (1: 2.8) - marking '1: 2.8' for Japan, marking '1: 2.6-2.8' for other countries, filter diameter 77 mm, internal focusing. The hood is threaded. Without a window of focusing distances, a gold border near the front lens. The name on the box is Tokina AT-X 270 AF PRO. You can distinguish on these signs of.
  3. Tokina AT-X PRO 28-70mm 1: 2.6-2.8 (1: 2.8) - marking '1: 2.8' for Japan, marking '1: 2.6-2.8' for other countries, filter diameter 77 mm. Externally similar to the previous version, but there is no 'Tokina' lettering near the front lens, and the hood is bayonet type. The version is commonly referred to as 'AT-X PRO II'. Name on the box Tokina AT-X 270 AF PRO II. You can distinguish on these signs of.
  4. Tokina AT-X PRO 28-80 1: 2.8 Aspherical - a window of a focus scale, a gold border near the front lens. The name on the box is Tokina AT-X 280 AF PRO. There is a subversion with a gold nameplate with the name of the lens and other enlightenment.
  5. Tokina AT-X PRO SV 28-70mm 1: 2.8 (also called Tokina AT-X 287 PRO SV) - easily recognized by the 'PRO SV' prefix. Name on the box Tokina AT-X 287 AF PRO SV.
  6. Tokina SD 24-70 F2.8 (IF) FX AT-X PRO Aspherical - easy to find by focal lengths. Has a built-in focus motor. Name on the box Tokina AT-X 24 ~ 70mm F2.8 PRO FX

As indicated above, the versions of Tokina AT-X 270 AF PRO and Tokina AT-X 270 AF PRO II exist in two versions: '1: 2.8' and '1: 2.6-2.8' and are quite similar to each other. The easiest way to distinguish between 'PRO' and 'PRO II' is by the inscription 'TOKINA' near the front lens and the presence of fasteners for the bayonet hood:

Most likely, the optical design of this lens is a recycling of the design of the previous lens. There is reliable information that the creator of the scheme is the legendary Angenieux (Angenjo).

Assembly

The assembly is super high quality, without any comments. The mount is made of chrome-plated brass. The inner frame is made of duralumin. The rest of the parts are made of durable composite materials. This is exactly the lens that I do not want to let go.

True, I could not find reliable information on all-weather protection, and most likely the lens does not have any additional protection against bad weather conditions or dust / dirt.

The body coating is very similar to Nikon's old professional lenses (e.g. Nikon 80-200 / 2.8 MKII) The rubber bands of the focus ring and zoom are pleasant to the touch.

When the focal length is changed, the front lens moves in a wave-like manner, but does not extend beyond the hood mounting ring, and therefore does not increase the overall dimensions of the lens. The maximum depth of the lens is available at 50mm focal length and focusing at infinity. The front lens is moved as close as possible to the edge of the body frame at a 28 mm focal length and focusing on the MDF. We can say that the lens has internal focusing and internal zoom and does not change its dimensions. The rear lens moves during focal length changes.

Unlike the Tokina AT-X 280 AF PRO, the original Nikon / Canon lenses of class 24 (28) -70 / 2.8 have a movable front part of the body frame (trunk), which does not look as stylish as the internal zoom of the Tokina AT-X 280 AF PRO.

Focusing

The lens focuses quickly enough. In manual focus mode, the focus ring rotates 90 degrees. During automatic focusing, the focus ring remains stationary, it is convenient to support the lens behind it, while the ring can rotate smoothly by hand without restrictions in any direction.

If there are reviews on the Internet about slow focusing, then we are talking about a lens option for the Canon system.

There is a special Tokyo-based AF / MF One-touch focus clutch switch (one-touch focus mode switch). The switch is quite convenient. To switch between focus modes, just pull the focus ring toward the bayonet mount or front lens.

A copy from the review on the camera Nikon D700 sometimes focuses behind the subject (back focus). But, in general, I did not observe any special problems with focusing.

It's important: auto focus with this lens is available only when using him on cameras with built-in motor focusing.

Only auto focus and sound confirmation of focus will not work with these cameras, all other important functions, such as automatic exposure metering and automatic iris control, will work well.

Image quality

The lens is very weak at 80mm and f / 2.8, the so-called 'Tokin software' comes into play here. In the 35-80 mm range, software is also present. When you close the diaphragm, some of the software remains. From an aperture of f / 4, the lens becomes pleasantly sharp. With F / 5.6, I have practically no complaints about sharpness.

I would not use this lens as a lens for a wide range of tasks, but would only take it for some 'atmospheric' situations. At first, I even thought that the Tokina AT-X 280 AF PRO from the review was completely broken, so strong and unusual was the software, which resembled pictures with monocle. But, as it turned out, this is such a feature of similar Tokin lenses. As for the zoom lens, Tokina AT-X 280 AF PRO can create a very nice picture, though unusual soft effect and a special Tokyo bokeh with luminous contours must be able to use.

In vignetting and distortion, the lens does not stand out in anything special - everything is within the normal range for this kind of optics. In the backlight and side light, the contrast drops sharply, you can catch a lot of glare and parasitic flares.

There is a lot of information on the network about Tokina AT-X 280 AF PRO instances with very poor and very good image quality. Most likely the lens has a wide variation in quality, and also, perhaps, it was constantly being developed optically without official releases about new models.

For those looking for an inexpensive omnivorous station wagon for a wide range of tasks, I would recommend finding a successful instance Tamron SP AF Aspherical XR Di LD [IF] 28-75mm 1: 2.8 Macro A09. Many times I met photographers who were unhappy with the Tokina AT-X 280 AF PRO and Tokina AT-X 270 AF PRO. Some argued that there was some kind of disease in the optics of these models, which over time manifests itself in the alignment of lenses and the deterioration of image quality. You can write your thoughts on this in the comments on this review.

Results

The Tokina AT-X 280 AF PRO is a well-built lens. It does not shine with optical indicators, the picture suffers from strong software at open apertures. There is probably a wide variation in the quality of individual specimens.

  • Sergei

    I am the first…

  • Sergei

    Ark thanks for the review, thanks for the fotika for the opportunity to Arkady to make reviews of interesting lenses ... Good pictures and good mood for everyone ... Hello everyone from Brovary ...

  • Sergei

    By the way, my tamron 28-75 2.8 is also soft on the open aperture, but it is worth covering to 4 and the sharpness is excellent ...

  • Denis

    Thanks for the review!

  • Lynx

    Nice glass.
    Once it was almost impossible for myself to buy this.

  • Rodion

    An interesting lens. Probably not very suitable for cameras with a small pixel, since the software is noticeable on the d700 sensor.
    By the way, I think that the “deterioration of quality over time” may be associated with a hybrid aspheric - there, as far as I remember, the lens has a plastic component that is fused. It probably degrades over time.
    And also plastic lens frames can “walk” - dry out. Now you can even add details on scotch tape in canon elk.

  • Alexander Malyaev

    Thanks! A very nice picture, the software does not spoil the impression but creates an atmosphere. I liked the lens, and work too.

  • Vladislav

    Good quality photos! I like )

  • Vladimir

    once worked with such a lens for video, as a result I sold it nafig and bought three fixes. if you don’t want to process the material for hours, select sharp doubles and play with the frequency at the post, buy something better. it also seemed to me that this lens is completely devoid of COLOR, i.e. the material shot on it was obviously unsaturated, dirty and a simple rise in saturation in the installation did not improve the situation, the dirt remained dirt. It may be somehow different in the photo, but for the video the lens is disgusting and at the hole 2.8 it is not working.

    • Simon

      If you are so specific, name which fixes you bought that calmed you ... I'd like to see their choice from experienced people ... THANKS ...

      • Vladimir

    • Igor_K

      This question also worries me a little. Just judging by my Tokin devices, this manufacturer does not have an excess of color, I have to add it in the camera settings, although my lenses are simply released by Tokina under other brands. Studying the photos from the review, I assumed that either the legendary "Engene" halo added saturation, or the prosaic "+" in the camera settings. Whatever it was, but personally I liked the color balance of the photos from the review - there is no departure to a yellow-green hue, with good saturation, but judging by your comment, it is not so simple to see, which is not surprising, reviews about this lens are often are diametrically opposite. In other words, the old truth is true - try each specific glass yourself, it is on your own camera, you have been convinced of this many times both on “third-party” lenses and on “native” Nikkors.

  • Igor_K

    Thanks to the Author and Fotika for a very timely (at least for me) review! My “always on duty” Nikkor 28-80 \ 3,3-5,6 just broke down, and I, looking for a more durable replacement for him, thought about a similar Tokin. Now, having studied the review, I clearly understood - as an inexpensive station wagon, this glass is not very suitable, the picture is too specific and the bokeh is “creative”, obviously draws attention to itself. In addition, the device weighs a lot. But a very small depth of field and “proprietary” software, as I see it, for a portrait is just that. I think that if the background is chosen darker and more uniform, then it can turn out quite interesting. I have repeatedly come across assertions that Tokin's picture leaves no one indifferent - either I like it very much, or I do not like it at all. I also met a review, from which it clearly followed that in the 1st version (28-70 \ 2,8) the bokeh is clearly calmer and the picture is more balanced. In short, the glass is certainly interesting, but, as Arkady very rightly said, not for every day, and not for a wide range of tasks.

    • Simon

      Lenses as wives ... not everyone likes the same ones :))))

  • Vladimir

    I have such a glass. All that is written above is absolutely true. Sometimes I like this glass, and sometimes I want to not just sell it, but just throw it away. I use it in conjunction with the D90, many write that the picture is more interesting on the FF, and judging by the review, yes.

  • lesa

    It was like that on the Sony A77. Very cool heavy thing! High quality assembled, pleasant tactile.
    Optically at first pleased. Then something happened, constantly smearing focus .. sold.
    I don’t know what happened, but the buyer then wrote that everything is fine with him and the A850.

    • Sergey

      Dear lesa, tell me, please, I want the same glass on my A77. While the work was, how was the quality of the photographs?

  • Bugije

    I have version 28-70 f2.8 pro (without SV). Autofocus worked very poorly in room lighting, focused well on the street. I washed it on 2.8, from 4.0 the picture was sharp in the center, I washed the edges. Heavy bandura, replaced by the old Nikkor 28-105

  • Linkoff

    I liked the colors very much, colorful, cleaned, create a festive atmosphere. But the bokeh, as for me, is not at all what, the daub and porridge are continuous. And the sharpness on the open could be better.

  • Yar

    but who did not come across an older brother - manual Tokina AT-X 28-85 1: 3.5-4.5?

    In my copy, the edges of the frame were always out of focus.

  • d.martyn

    I have this miracle in the arsenal, I’m very pleased, a cool spare lens (I naturally prefer fixes), autofocus is fast, although it’s a screwdriver, it rarely misses, use only with a hood.
    +: assembled for centuries, smooth bokeh, quite sharp (5,6 already like a razor).
    -: really does not like backlight (up to 8 when the backlight loses contrast), catches hares.

  • d.martyn

    I’m going to go for a walk with the small ones, I’ll shoot them (I’ll come out), it's just cloudy.

    • d.martyn

      Low contrast F4, the sun is not in the frame.

      • al260

        And if so ? ..I’m thinking of taking a Pentax lens for the first time ...

  • Anatoly

    I had such a lens. Sold. I could not get used to Tokin's “software”, in some moments I brought my own charm to the frame, but in most cases it was unsuitable for me. After him took Tamron 17-50, so he suited me better

  • Dmitriy

    I had one. Fromatit in the sun is crazy at all focal points right up to F5,6. That's why he sold it.

  • Arkady Shapoval

    Maybe a bug with firmware.

    • Kirill Yankovsky

      What is a lens firmware glitch? he's a screwdriver.

      Although the lens is stupid - and true for connoisseurs of artists

      • Arkady Shapoval

        Lens firmware, there is a whole bunch of electronics in the middle.

  • Inga

    Friends are comrades, such a problem. I bought today a Tokina 28-70 2.8 AT-X PRO lens from another city, for the Nikon d7000 carcass. Autofocus works only in the U1 and U2 modes, ignores the rest completely. What could be the problem and how is it treated? Or can you put it on a shelf to collect dust?

    • Arkady Shapoval

      Most likely problems in programming and compatibility of a third-party old lens with some cameras.

    Colleagues, tell me!
    Available on hand Canon 40D + 24-105 F4L + 430EX, offer this set to exchange for Nikon D300 + Tokina 28-80 2.8 from this review. What is your opinion? In principle, the boot seems to suit everyone, but I always wanted a nikon and it was the D300.
    Shooting mainly for a family album.
