tokina_12-24Tokina AT-X Pro 12-24mm f/4 DX

Pros: Focal range, price, construction, performance, sharpness from 12 to 18mm

Cons: Flare, sharpness after 18mm, mf/af pump

Opinion: In 2021 he still has a lot to say in my opinion, paid 120 euros equal to the new and used on D500. Sharp closing it a few stops, really interesting focal range, fast SLR af, Granite construction of Tokina. If I had to give a vote I would give 8.5 out of 10 taking into account the fact that it is a dated lens and that it will never return images equal to a Sigma art or similar, but it refers to the really affordable price for those like me who use it only on the go. It suffers from Flare quite heavily, has the af mf system of tokina a little uncomfortable, and after 18mm it becomes less sharp, but wide-angle side is great.

sigma_150-600cSigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM C

Pros: Lightweight, good overall performance, stabilizer, construction (plastic but solid), price

Cons: Sharpness of my specimen, Short tripod bracket, aesthetically delicate plastics, zoom rubber that tends to whiten, not tropicalized, dark, dust infiltration in the front lens

Opinion: I had this lens for 2 years, used on different camera bodies, first on D610 and then on D300 and D500.. I think it is a compromise in everything, sharpness that in my specimen left a bit to be desired in different situations especially on apsc but this I think depends a lot on Sigma's controls on production (there is the possibility of calibrating it with the dock), the stabilizer is good but not exceptional in both modes, the focus is quite fast but not always precise despite the limiter, constructively speaking it is well done but it lines with ease and the tires tend to turn white, it is a 6.3 that improves to f8 so a little dark, for those who use it on a tripod the bracket is short and easy vibrations are created. If I had to give a rating it would be a 7.5 out of 10. In conclusion I can say that in my opinion it is a "lukewarm" lens has never exalted me particularly for sharpness and bokeh, but it has always done its own and has never given me problems, you can make excellent shots and for what it costs (I paid it 750 € 2 years ago in conditions equal to the new) it is an excellent compromise. After 2 years I noticed dust infiltration between the lenses, dust that does not create problems for the photos but that lowers their value in case of sale. I hope I have been of help to those who plan to buy it.
