    How about Tokina , Tamron & Sigma lenses ?

    Well there are no posts dedicated to TOKINA or TAMRON lenses , strange because
    lots of people would like to know how they compare to the big makes
    So i posted this here in another good third party make


    I`m dedicating a part of my personal webalbum site to showing a few pictures taken with different lenses.

    Here you will find pictures taken with a Sigma 30mm f/1.4 & a Tokina 100mm f/2.8 macro , these 2 lenses are not that popular , most people favor Nikon 35mm f/2 or 50mm f/1.4 over the Sigma and the Tamron 90mm f/2.8 macro , Sigma 100mm f/2.8 macro , Nikon 60mm f/2.8 macro , Nikon 105mm f/2.8 VR macro over the Tokina.

    So have a look at how these perform and do come back later because i`ll be posting some more pictures taken with other lenses like the Tokina 12-24mm f/4 & Tamron f/2.8 macro and many more in the futur

    The funny thing is, I suspect they had an order for the lens, and then the customer couldn't pay. Or, they may have a buyer who gets a big discount for letting them use it for the show. I suspect that a lens of that size is only made on special order. It's not like you're going to stroll into Ritz camera and pick one up on a whim.

    I took the photo at the Sigma booth at PMA--thinking "marketing" and "law enforcement".
