comment:nice sharpness even at wide open, stop down aliitle..super sharp. Nice color..similiar to minolta glasses, Tokina Hads More superior beercan body than BBC. Bokeh is smooth. At F4.0, I did not notice any CA, even at Sun bright. you will get nice potrait with this lens..

its true it very heavy, but is not abig deal.. it's hard to find the original hood.. my lens came with 3rd party hood

Recommended Value Tele Lens..
