Tokina AT-X Pro 12-24/4.0 DX II for Canon

Now I certainly Tokina AT-X 12-24mm F4 PRO DX (not II) but as I understand it, is it just that this has built in AF motor in the lens, something only Nikon owners get pleasure from and that the lens has a new coating on the front lens to prevent lens artifacts. There should also be a red line on the version II. Well, since my camera bag gaped up at wide-angle lens so I decided to turn to the Tokina 12-24mm which I had read about before. Can say that I am satisfied with my purchase and it fits very comfortably on my Canon 50d. The first thing you notice is how heavy and solid it feels. It may thus seem a little forward heavy on a Canon xxxd / xxxxd camera. Autofocus is good and in my opinion quiet. To switch between auto / manual moves front and back focus ring. Think it works fine, but avoid making it too often as it rips on it. F4 can feel a little faint (often use the lens in confined indoor environments) but it's great to have F4 along the entire range at least. The lens feels sharp along the entire range but a little soft at 24mm, but I use it almost never. The only major problem I have with this lens is the amount of CA (chromatic aberration) as it forms, especially at 12mm @ F4. I get it off without much worry on the computer, but I've never seen so much CA from a lens before. Summary: PLUS + Solid build quality + Crisp + Quiet / Fast AF + F4 + Lens hood supplied with MINUS -CA -Wear on the Auto / Manual switch. -Soft at 24mm RECOMMENDED!

Prints photo-quality images and regular documents without concern for me. If you look really closely at the photo prints you may see an occasional line with small dots. Do not know if that's common among printers in general. If you're looking for a fast printer you will probably look further for rapid, it is not. The black glossy surface looks very nice, but the printer itself is quite plasticky. The cartridges are easy to replace and also opposite light that glows red to confirm that they are secure. I am satisfied with my purchase.

Really lovely to use, has run with it ever since 2006 and it still holds true today. Rarely use the buttons that change the mouse pointer speed, although it can be good sometimes at certain game elements. Front and bakknappen is situated spaced thumb access. No looks great mouse but for the price it's worth the money.

Can not find any cons with the stand when it costs so little here. It feels solid, it is stylish and it is easy to carry around. It includes certainly no quick hitch, though on the other hand, it takes Surely not more than 4 seconds to screw the camera?

My first telephoto lens that I'm satisfied owner. The autofocus is fast, accurate, quiet and internal. Picture quality is very high in its class, a real L lens simply. Brightness is perhaps not so great but then you have to choose the 2.8 version instead. The balance between 70-200 nd, and my 50d is almost perfect for me, the fact is that the lens does not weigh as much as it may look to do. It should also be safe to have on the lens when using a tripod without bayonet mount gives way. Very neat and eye-catching lens even if it is not as white as the product image, but more ash. The drawback with the startling appearance is that it becomes difficult to keep a low profile in public, for you will no doubt emerge as a very experienced photographer with this on camera. Plus: + Solid + Silent Accuracy + Secure autofocus + Sharp (even at 4.0) + Affordable Minus: -No tripod mount included RECOMMENDED!

The first time that I pay such an extent for a pair of headphones, but but ... Mainly use headphones for music and movies on your computer and can only say that I am impressed with all the new parts highlighted compared to what my old kids could handle. Very cool, especially "steel rings" on the side is a nice detail. It can get a bit sweaty in ear cushions for long sessions, but it is not a major problem for me. Felt also as headband pressed in the beginning, however, got used to it so it does not feel anymore. Unfortunately, it is something that is taken and it does not depend on the headphones, but rather that I run with a standard sound card on your computer that does not make you look really fair. May perhaps acquire a headphone amp in the future. RECOMMENDED!

The first lens that I bought for my 50d for 1 year ago and I can only recommend it. The lens does however best in full format then burn willows becomes 80mm on 1.6x crop sensors, the focal length, which unfortunately is not as versatile. In many situations, it will therefore feel very 'crowded' through the viewfinder. Plus: + Sharp from 2.0 to 11 + Bright + Fin bokeh + Lightweight + Manual Override + Quiet AF + Affordable Minus: -Soft at 1.4 yet approved -A little plasticky -The minimum focusing distance At this writing, costing the lens that cheapest 3300kr, a good buy if you ask me. I also think it is a better choice than the affordable 50mm 1.8 that has worse AF, lower brightness, is loud, has edgier bokeh and has a solid of a toy in comparison.
