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 lens the AT-X 840 is still the smallest lens to zoom to 400mm with a bright f/5.6 aperture. Perfect for traveling the New AT-X 840 has an internal focusing system which increases AF speed and responsiveness. Further updates make this lens an excellent traveling companion for a Canon or Nikon DIGITAL or FILM SLR camera.------The optics incorporate SD (APO) glass to give clear sharp images and an internal flare cutting design removes unnecessary light (flare). To further eliminate unwanted stray light and flare Tokina always recommends using the included lens hood for best results.

Image quality good, but does tend to seek for focus, especially when the light is fading.

The big issue for me was softness and CA's. No matter how hard I tried, I could not get very sharp photos. I have a Canon 70-200 f/4L non-is, and I could consistently get better cropped photos at 200mm that were better than any from the Tokina. I did a lot of testing at different apertures and just could not find a real sweet spot. Even at f/4, the Canon 70-200 was better than the Tokina at f/8 and at any focal length.
One other issue I found with the lens was that it is a front focusing lens. This would cause the image to loose more sharpness because the end of the lens would droop causing part of the image to go out of focus.
It is very possible that I got a bad copy. My biggest gripes:
-CA's and purple fringing pretty bad, if you are shooting water fowl, look elsewhere;
-Heavy for size;
-Images not very sharp
-I don't recall the term, but if you are shooting towards the sun, the flaring is HORRIBLE!
Tokina makes a solid feeling lens and the lens is very compact and could make a good travel telephoto.
My suggestion is to look at other telephotos.
