    I have a new Tokina on a D300...seems to be running 1 to 1 +1/3 stops over...any thoughts as to why in matrix mode??? Seemed strange until I read some fella had the same problem with a different length Tokina...went thru 2 samples and give up! ...all thoughts welcome....B
  2. the D300 seems a bit off on third party lenses sometimes
    My 24mm f1.8 is about -1/2 to -1 EV, on my D300, but flawless on my D50 and D200

    Also my AI lenses are all over the map (were never that accurate on my D200, but on the D300 its about 2x worse!)

    i think you can send the camera and lens to tokina and they rechip it or something right?
