    At what aperture do most of you find yourselves using this lens?

    It looks very similar to the Angenieux from F4 (or more stopped down), but wide open it is noticeably worse, both in terms of sharpness and contrast. Because I'm mostly on 4/3 sensors these days, I find being limited to F4 a bit of a drag. I may end up selling mine.

    Yeah, the image at 2.8 is strangely muddled (and obviously) soft to my eye. I try not to go more open than 3.5 if I can help it. It is an unfortunate limitation, but I still think the lens has a place in my package. I just got off a music video shoot and used it a few times. The DP has an UMP 4.6k as well and when he was reviewing the footage I shot on the Tokina, he asked about the lens because he loved the image quality.

    That's definitely not good.
    I thought you are just talking about that "clunk" sound it makes when turning it over, that's the pullback ring, but a wobbling front
    element? Not a keeper.
