Tokina created the first 80-400mm AF lens in 1996 and when it did, it created a whole new class of telephoto lenses. The latest version is still the smallest lens to zoom to 400mm with a bright f/5.6 aperture and make this lens an excellent traveling companion for a Canon or Nikon SLR camera.
Conns Cameras is a family-run business established by Phil Conn in 1968. Bob and Mike Conn together with an excellent team of knowledgeable and helpful staff can guide you through the maze of new technology.

The AT-X 840 AF D has a smooth and quick internal focusing system and the revised design means the all-metal inner barrel which houses the heaviest glass elements does not have to rotate when the lens focuses, making it much faster than the previous models. Optically, the AT-X840 AF D has new multi-coatings applied to the elements that are formulated to compensate for the highly reflective CCD and CMOS sensors in today's Digital SLR cameras. This new multi-coating greatly reduces the chance of internal flare or ghost reflections.
A built-in low-profile tripod collar makes for a well-balanced camera/lens combination when using a tripod or monopod (For best results, Tokina always recommends using a tripod or monopod with such strong telephoto lenses). Another feature that makes the AT-X 840 AF D an excellent traveling companion is the zoom lock switch. The zoom can be locked at 80mm to so there is not chance of "zoom creep" when the camera and lens are being carried over the shoulder.
Tokina kept ease of use in mind with the new AT-X 840 AF D and the new BH-725 lens hood with the a PL Assist spring loaded thumb wheel allows a circular polarizer or special effects filter to be rotated while the lens hood is in place. This means removing the hood is no longer required to change the position of the filter.
