Right or wrong.

Need your advice guys would i be right in choosing Tokina ATX100 for the macro lens as am happy with the W/A ive got or would it the sigma be a safer bet?

Re: Right or wrong.

Have a look at What Digital Camera last month.They have tested Canon.Nikon,Sigma,Tamron and Tokina.Macro 100mm prime lens.
In the past I have had some excellent results with Tokina lens.
I hope this helps.

I think I commented on this topic a few weeks ago Simpbow.

Simpbow

I use the Tokina 100mm Macro lens & yes it's every bit as good as the Sigma's & Tamron's plus it it's built like a tank, The crackle finish is hard wearing & looks good, The clutch mechanism is great enabling you to switch between auto/manual focus just by sliding the grip forward or back, Highly recommended

Regards Toonie
