|comment:||Nice lense, more versatile and funny to use than all my possesed Tokina 28-70/2.8.|
MFD is 50cm , more useful than 28-70 at 70cm
Comparing to 28-70/2.8 , I like this lens more than 28-70 even it is more expensive (but not 28-70 price up due to Anginieux fever, price is very close , sometimes , 28-70 is more expensive) and less sharpness.
Bokeh is very weird, but in the same way as AT-X 235 Pro (20-35/2.8)
You can see all my test result comparing to Tokina 28-70 AT-X 270 Pro I at this site
it is the head to head comparison.
ps. I used to own almost the bright normal zoom of Tokina (all model , except Pro SV) This AT-X 280 may not be the best but it is I like the most.
