The Tokina AT-X M100 AF PRO D excels at shooting portraits. Due to the large the aperture and optical properties the lens creates magnificently soft bokeh in both the background and foreground while easily keeping a comfortable distance from the model. The focal length is short enough to allow easy and natural communication with the model, creating a feeling of comfort and creativity. This combined wit the fast f/2.8 aperture allows the lens to be used in the widest variety of shooting settings both indoor and outdoor.
Incorporated 9 bladed diaphragm creates beautiful, almost circular-shaped background highlights up to f/5.6 with effectively surpassed longitudinal chromatic aberration.

Light-weight and compact, the M100 is capability of life-sized (1:1) reproduction at 30 cm. The lens has high resolution, fast aperture, low distortion and low falloff. Beautiful soft bokeh makes this lens extremely attractive tool for macro, portraits, landscapes, art reproduction, commercial and general purpose shooting.
The Tokina AT-X M100 AF PRO D incorporates all the necessary features and provides all the main advantages for dedicated macro shooters. The Tokina AT-X M100 AF PRO D is capable of life-sized (1:1) reproduction at 30 cm. This allows photographers to have a little working distance from the subject and still obtain impressive magnification. Having some working distance is important when shooting easily startled subjects such as insects. Designed for full frame sensors, the focal length equivalent on a DSLR with an APS-C sensor turns to 150mm on Nikon camera and 160mm on Canon. This gives an advantage of shooting macro with 1.5x~1.6x larger magnification than a full frame camera. The focus range limiter switch on the lens body makes focusing faster saving time.
The Tokina AT-X M100 AF PRO D optical design suppresses curvature of field while maintaining high resolution across the entire image along with extremely low distortion, low falloff and perfectly controlled chromatic aberration. Multi-coating applied to optical elements effectively control flare and ghosting.
Thanks to its optical design concepts the Tokina AT-X M100 AF PRO D has a convenient compact lens design. A careful balance of high-impact plastic on the exterior coupled with metal load bearing interior parts makes this lens mechanically solid for long-term reliability even during extensive field use.
A focus range limiter switch on the side of the lens locks the lens focus into or out of the macro focusing range to avoid excessive AF hunting.
The directions of the manual focusing ring matches the proprietary direction of Nikon and Canon lenses. A rubber grip ring near the rear of the lens is there for easy mounting and dismounting the lens. Black flocking inside the inner barrel prevents glare and unwanted reflections.
The front of the lens has a 55mm filter threads which extends during the focusing but does not rotate. This allows different filters including polarizers to be used for landscape or product photography.
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 lens mount for manual focusing. You can immediately convert the focusing mode to MF and then focus without rushing. When doing so, you will have all the time to carefully observe the model while focusing and to further adjust the composition the way you want.
