Lens Review
Introduction | Tokina AT-X M100 AF Pro D 100mm f2.8 lens performance: Solid performer | Tokina AT-X M100 AF Pro D 100mm f2.8 versus competition | Conclusion

Although Tokina hasn’t updated this lens since it was introduced in 2006, it still has very competitive performance, and when stopped down is even sharper than the $899 Micro Nikkor. While the Sigma 105mm f2.8 has comparable sharpness at any given aperture setting and boast ultrasonic focusing and stabilization, like the Micro Nikkor, it’s still $220 more expensive than the Tokina and neither have the aperture collar that’s coveted by serious macro photographers.
