TheTokina AT-X 535 PRO DX AF 50-135 mm f/ 2.8 (IF)  is equipped with the so called One-touch Focus Clutch Mechanism, i. e. the choice between manual focusing and auto-focusing modes is realized with one touch.  In order to switch  autofocus mode you should slightly shift the focus ring  forward.  To engage manual focusing the focus ring should be shifted back to the camera.  Switching requires some effort and is followed with a click sound.  While switching, it is possible to defocus.
