Product description from Tokina

At launch 2006 Tokina wrote this regarding Tokina AT-X M 100mm f/2,8 AF PRO D Macro:

"The AT-X 100 PRO D is a new macro lens capable of life-sized (1:1) reproduction at 11.8 in. (30 cm). The lens´ multi-coating have been re-engineered to match the highly reflective silicon based CCD and CMOS sensors in today´s digital SLR cameras. This lens gives the best of both worlds because optics still give full coverage and excellent sharpness on 35mm film. A macro lens that can handle both the digital and film worlds with ease.

The AT-X 100 PRO D also has a very convenient focus limiter switch that can lock the focus out of the closes focus making it focus faster when used as a moderate telephoto lens that is excellent portraits as well.

Other features of the AT-X 100 PRO D are:

Tokina One Touch Focus Clutch Mechanism for fast easy switching between manual and Auto focus.

55mm non-rotating filter thread for use with macro ring flashes and special effects filters.

The AT-X 100 PRO D also comes with a deep bayonet mounted lens hood."
