Tokina AF 35-70mm f/3.5-4.6 Macro

(2 customer reviews)

This camera glass has a good build quality and it is made with 10 photographic lens elements. The lens coating helps to minimize lens flare and ghosting. This lens can be used in both autofocus and manual focus modes. The bokeh effect is nice and smooth, which is especially useful for portrait photography. The resolution of the lens is good, producing sharp and clear images. The lens aperture ranges from f/3.5 to f/4.6, which is good for low light situations. This lens was manufactured in the past and may not be available new, but there are alternative options available on the market.

Optical design

Thanks to the macro capabilities this lens can make tiny things look big. Has 6 aperture blades, this number of blades are commonly used. Having rounded blades provides out of focus circle shape closer to a circle.
