  • Poor man's Angenieux - Tokina AT-X-Pro 28-70mm F2.6-2.8

    As promised, here are some quick test grabs from my new
    Tokina AT-X-Pro 28-70mm F2.6-2.8 (Angenieux design) - did I mention that I love that lens?

    The way you can let the light leak in, is amazing

    The 28-70 f:2.6 AF was Angenieux’s last consumer oriented zoom, that was targeted towards the pro market. The lens was just as good optically as any other pro zoom lens of the time either by Nikon or Canon. Unfortunately, its price was also on par with the best of the competition, which made it a tough sale. Later on when Angenieux pulled out of the SLR market, Tokina managed to get usage rights to the Angenieux design and produce the AT-X PRO AF 28-70mm f/2.6-2.8 lens.
    The one I have is the first version of the Pro series, with the screw on hood.
    If somebody is interested, here is some moreInformation.

      Lovevly images Frank! Is that on the Ursa Mini 4.6k?

      I have the same lens, really like the rendering, though it can flare a bit, so it's more for filmmaking than corporate stuff.

              How do you think this would match the Sigma 18-35 w/ a 1/8 promist?

                This is a vintage lens and a vintage lens formula/coatings.
                You probably can get close, especially with some post work, but that certain look is almost impossible to get.

                Pretty much like the magic of the Cooke glas, wich is impossible to emulate.

                    Anyone know the difference between this version of the lens and the one with the constant 2.8 aperture?

                    EDIT: Okay, the whole history and details of the 5 different versions are in Frank's second link.
                    Turns out you only want versions 1 or 2 of this lens, with the version 1 being the treat.

                        To add some fuel into the flames Vic, I just received my Sigma F2.8 / 70-210 mm APO Zoom to compliment the long end :-)
                        Not exactly the Angenieux mojo, but still a similar very nice and vintage look

                        So now I'm covered from 28 to 210 mm @ f2.8.

                          Nice rocket launcher there Frank.
                          So, what's the difference between Sigma's APO lenses and their ART lenses?
                          I understand the whole APO thing for reducing chromatic aberrations, but how does this line up with the ART lenses? Are ART lenses also APO or what?

                            Just looked over the ArtLens specs, but couldn't find APO mentioned anywhere - maybe they control CA in a different way

                              Thanks mate.

                              Well, at any rate, this Sigma lens looks like a really great alternative to the more expensive Canons and Nikons.
