GET A GREAT DEAL ON THE TOKINA 100mm f/2.8 MACRO FROM B&H HERE:
GREAT DEALS FROM B&H – UPDATED WEEKLY
CONCLUSION: So to wrap up this review, we gave the Tokina 100mm f/2.8 macro lens a 46.5/50 and our Highly recommended rating! So to answer the original question, did the Angry Photographer make a decent recommendation? Yup, he did. Thanks angry, as I would have most likely picked up the much more expensive Nikon 105mm f/2.8 micro – which granted has VR, but it’s also more than double the price.
THE FINAL WORD: If you’re anything like me and you’ve recently changed systems to Nikon and you need a high quality, good value macro lens, then look no further than the Tokina 100mm f/2.8 macro with it’s excellent combination of fantastic build and great optics both for macro and portraiture and all for a very reasonable price, then it’s really hard not to highly recommend a lens like this. Tokina has historically done a great job offering 3rd party glass with superior build and great optics and all for very reasonable prices, the 100 f/2.8 is exactly that, I just wish the focus motor were a bit faster, and a bit quieter.
