3rd Party Zooms: Tokina

Toki no makes a relatively small collection of lenses and I find it very interesting that they've kind of really tried to corner the market in one particular area, so they have gone along with it ni cons naming protocol, which is fx and d x for their full frame and their crop frame sensors, so they really seem to be specializing in wide angle zoom lenses and a lens that I have been recommending for years for the crop frame use or de three thousand five thousand users is this eleven sixteen? It doesn't have much range but that's perfectly ok for this type of wide angle it's got that nice fast aperture and it's a really well built lens and so this was really better than anything that nikon was offering. The closest is the ten to twenty four and it was doing it for much lower of her price. And this at least right now is a particularly good bye because it's just been discontinued and they have a replacement outfor this lens. And so if you want an affordable white angle, lands will built fa...

st aperture highly recommended been very, very popular. The reason they replaced it is they wanted to have a little bit more range and so they increase the range from eleven to twenty and so you're going to pay a little bit of a premium to get that extra range up there, which is not super significant but convenient to have, and so that two point eight is really rare. Nikon does not make a two point eight lens for those crop frame users in this wide angle category, and so I would be perfectly happy using either one of these toki nas over the icons. They also make kind of a junior version that is an f four aperture rather than two point eight, so if you don't need the two point eight, eight aperture, you can save some money, save some size, and this is going to compete more straight on par with the nikon. But look at that price difference, it's coming in at less than half the price of the nikon, and so if you're looking at saving a buck or two or three or several hundred, actually, this would be a great choice. I think I don't think optically it's going to be far behind the nikon it all might be, might be ahead of it. Actually, they did want to make one in the ultra white category for full frame cameras that go very fast aperture down to two point eight once again, on these really fast, wide ones, they're not going to take filters because of the big front element on it. At sixteen, you can get a nikon lands that does take filters at sixteen, but this simplifies the design on it and look at the price they're able to offer this at a much lower price than the equivalent nikon seventeen thirty five, which has the same aperture, not quite as much range and you can't filter it is easy and so there's some things that you give up savings for that for the full frame user, somebody who wants a wide angle lens but just needs an f four, which should be travel, photography, landscape photography in my mind, a good little lens that will do that price savings over the nikon, the eighteen to thirty five would be the competitor on this that little nikon eighteen to thirty five, I think it's just a really good quality lands and might get my attention over this particular toki anna, although that f four aperture is always enticing to have something that over something that's changing, they don't do much in the way of telephoto. But they do have one standard zoom twenty four to seventy two point eight like tamarind in this range, it's mainly here to offer you something similar to nikon at something that is far cheaper in price. And so competing with the older twenty four to seventy without the vibration control it's going to come in at a noticeable price savings almost half the price

Outstanding class! This is a must own. You will refer back to this class many times during your photog career. John has put a ton of work into this class and it shows. Being able to download the slides and other Nikon glass info is wonderful. Even if you're not a Nikon shooter you will still gleam tons of information from this class, John covers in great detail the strength and weaknesses of each lens and when you might consider using it. I was expecting a good class, but this turned into an epic class. I watched multiple videos several times. The only bad thing I can say is I "had" to order a few more lenses! Thank you John Greengo for making a truly amazing class.

Wow! What a course! Very in depth, lots of valuable information. John instructs with great knowledge and integrity. I have taken other online courses, NOT from Creative Live (my bad!) and was left feeling like a monkey who had learned tricks without understanding or knowledge. Now I feel I have the confidence to move forward on my photographic journey securely knowing how lenses function, what to look for and what price range I can expect. Bravo John! I'd love to see a 2020 update video as an addendum.

Finally I have some sense of what lens do, know what I have, what I would like to have, what lens to use, and how I can get images that I see. Best part of this session is it was made so clear, simple, logical, and practical. I am glad that I purchased this product. Now, I am going to look for more from John Greengo so I can take better understanding and take better images. Thank You.
