- Good points:
- Even this is a small sensor lens, it works wery good with slightly bigger EOS 1D APS-H sensor. About -1ev vignetting with F/2.8, in F/4 flawless. Very usefull angle of view with 1:1 ratio macro. One of best "walk around" lens and good build quality.
- Bad points:
- If you are familiar with USM/HSM, focus in this item feels slow. But... "its not a bug, its a feature". Focus is "macro like", slow, but reliable.

When used on digital SLR cameras the AT-X M35 PRO DX lens gives the same angle of view as a 52mm lens. The close focusing distance of the M35 is an amazingly close 5.5 in. (14cm) yielding a macro ratio of 1:1 or life-sized reproduction with excellent sharpness. Its compact size makes it easy to carry almost everywhere and the wide f/2.8 aperture allows for easier viewing in low light situations.
The front element of the AT-X M35 PRO DX has a newly formulated WR or “Water Repellent" optical coating on the glass. This new coating makes marks such as spots left by water or finger-prints much easier to clean than standard multi-coating.**
Tokina’s exclusive One-touch Focus Clutch Mechanism allows the photographer to switch between AF and MF simply by snapping the focus ring forward for AF and back toward the camera to focus manually. There is no need to change the AF-MF switch on Nikon cameras*** and there is no second AF/MF switch on the lens for Canon, everything is accomplished by the focus ring.
