    Excellent quality lens

    I bought this lens to "complete" my lens collection. I have a fair number of good to high-quality lenses, but the widest lens I owned was a 24-70mm. It just seems that fairly often I find myself needing just a bit wider than that. I read a bit about this lens before the purchase and it seems a lot of people are very happy with this lens. Now that I own it, it is obvious why. Right out of the box you can tell that this is a solid piece of equipment. It is definitely not a "fantastic plastic". It's got some heft to it, though it is not so heavy that it is uncomfortable on the camera. (I have a Canon 40d.) In playing around I found it to be a very sharp lens. It also has tremendous depth of field making it great for getting group shots and including background. I've read some complaints that 11-16mm isn't much of a zoom. It's not. However, when it's that wide I look at the zoom just to give me a little play around the edges and keep my group more towards the center of the... 5/5 William E.

    Excellent compared to the Canon 16 - 35 2.8 L lens

    0 5/5 RL - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Tokina AT-X Pro FX 16-28mm f/2.8 For Canon (Accessory) There are a lot of positive reviews on this lens so I won't elaborate here other than state I purchased the Canon 16 - 35 2.8 L lens initially but was disappointed with the distortion and edge resolution. At the price, the Canon should be much better than what it is. I took a chance with this Tokina based on the many positive reviews and validated that all those great reviews are true! Yes, the lens is heavy but so much better than the Canon optically. Mechanically the lens feels well made although I understand it isn't weather sealed as with the Canon. Factoring-in the price, this is a great value. My sample has excellent resolution wide-open with hardly any distortion. The lens cap has been improved and is now a pinch-type thick plastic cover that encloses the len's integrated lens hood. I use this with my Canon 5d MKII and also have a 24-105 L Lens. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , April 26, 2012

To put it plainly, I haven't seen great results from any Canon wide-zoom, even the 16-35 L II, a lens I came to hate due to softness issues.

    Fast Sharp and Excellent Build

    What more could you want. I've used Canon's great 10-22mm and it is a nice lens but as a comparison here is what I found.-Sharpness goes to the Tokina hands down. While wide open @ 2.8 it might be about equal by the time the Tokina is stopped down to the 3.5 that the Canon is wide open there is no comparison.-Zoom Range obviously goes to Canon. Much more usable here than the limited almost fixed focal length Tokina. Actually you might even say that the Tokina is close to a prime. Also I liked that extra 1mm on the wide end (it is very noticeable). Myself I don't mind the limited zoom as I'm always on the wide side and don't even use the 16mm.-Build Quality again this belongs to the Tokina as it is built like a tank as are most of the pro grade Tokinas. Canon's build quality good for this consumer designed lens but is not up to their L (pro) standards.-CAs Chromatic Aberrations or purple fringing If you are shooting into high contrast... 5/5 Casch "Chris" (Northern California) - See all my reviews This review is from: Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 AT-X116 Pro DX Digital Zoom Lens (for Canon EOS Cameras) (Accessory) What more could you want.

    This is a great lens.

    From the moment I pulled the Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 out of the box from the rental store, I wanted to keep it.The build quality of the Tokina is far and away better than the popular Canon EF-S 10-20mm f/3.5-4.5 lens. More metal less plastic, so it just feels like a better product out of the box. It's built more like my Canon L lenses.The Tokina comes with the lens hood (the Canon 10-22mm does not but ironically costs more).This lens works very well for indoor or other low light photography (sunrise/sunset). It has great contrast. I used this lens on a Canon 400D/XTi and got I felt were excellent results (I'm talking not about my skill as a photographer rather the ability of the lens to deliver consistent crystal clear and richly colored images :).Images taken with this lens are sharp as a tack (I uploaded one however the Amazon image processing degraded it significantly).Some possible downsides:The zoom range is... 5/5 Jeff Beard - See all my reviews, November 30, 2008

    Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 ATX Pro DX

    On returning from Italy and evaluating my images (1200), I find this lens to be a real keeper. Photozone.de was my deciding source to purchase this lens where their review and tests indicate this is the sharpest lens in its class. CA's as mentioned there were an issue in a couple of high contrast images and easily corrected in Photoshop. Field curvature is noticable especially in the St Peters interior image above and can be minimized with camera position and focal length settings. Unfortunately I did not have a tripod and a point and shoot technique ruled. The 16mm longest fl will take some getting used to and does not provide much range. I carried a Canon 28-135mm IS for the longer shots. The f/2.8 at all fl was nice for the darker interiors of buildings on my Canon 30D. Lens construction seems solid without any focusing issues.New to wide lenses, flare caught me a couple of times, I'll remember to watch for it more often, I know it's common with these wide... 4/5 L.

    TOKINA 12-24MM WIDE ANGLE

    Please let me be brief in my conclusions concerning the TOKINA 12-24MM F/4...This is the first TOKINA piece of glass that I have owned. My first impression was that in appearance it looks very much like a Nikon. It's handsome in appearance and build quality appears to be superb. I immediately got the feeling of holding a precision instrument and I like that. While some plastic is used, it can't be much judging by the weight of this lens, but it is not overly heavy. Fit-up when mounted to the camera (40D) is as good as anything I have from Canon. I found the zoom and manual focus rings to operate smoothly.As far as operation goes...this lens has no switch to change from manual to auto focus, you simply pull the focus ring back and manual focus engages without having to hunt for any precise spot. Return to Auto by pushing forward. It snaps smartly in and out. I like this arrangement on a wide angle because when using auto-focus on a lens with a wide field... 4/5 Danny (California) - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Tokina 10-17 mm Fisheye

    I purchased this lens exclusively for underwater photography use. It is recommended by many UW photography sites and UW photographers as a must have lens for wide angle photography. Although I also have a Canon 10-22 mm lens, I thought I'd give this a try and see what all the excitement was about. Well, they weren't kidding. This is a phenomenal tool for UW photography. I shot this through an 8" Ikelite dome using a Canon 7D. Sharpness was very good, even into the corners. You can get very close to your subject and minimize the water column (and particles) to a greater degree than even the Canon 10-22 mm. The distortion you see with this lens above water is not evident below. I was always a bit nervous about using a fisheye, because of the curvature they yield. I was pleasantly surprised how much this is a non-issue underwater. Depth of field is fantastic, allowing wide angle close ups of a small foreground subject, with an expansive scene behind.

    0 5/5 N.K. (Los Angeles, CA USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Tokina AF 10-17mm f/3.5-4.5 AT-X 107 DX Lens - Canon Mount (Camera) I will keep it quick and simple. This lens is amazing! I use it as my UWA lens for my 40d/7d and it does a VERY nice job. At its widest angle is when it has the most "fisheye" effect so when you use it at 17 mm, it is less noticeable. I use it in conjunction with the Canon 17-55, and it really helps me get in shots of rooms or landscapes. Also, the fisheye effect is a really fun, albeit limited, bonus. Additionally, the minimum focusing distance of this lens is superb. You have to be careful, however, because you can get to close to a subject and ding the front element as it is hard to tell distance from viewfinder due to fisheye effect. Wouldn't recommend this lens if you have no need for UWA because I don't think the fisheye effect alone justifies the purchase. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , October 20, 2010

    I love this lens

    I bought this lens on a whim after wanting an extreme wide angle lens. It was either this lens or the Sigma 10-20mm. In the end, I bought the Tokina 10-17 due to my enjoyment with fisheye photos and the fact that it looked much easier to convert fisheye photos into good looking rectilinear images than vice versa.Though, I'll start with the bad. Chromatic aberration is rather bad. You can see it frequently, especially if you shoot photos outdoors. I'm also not a fan of the friction based lens cap.With that out of the way, on to the good. The lens is solid. It feels as though it can survive a drop (which I always enjoy in a lens).Because it's a wide angle lens, the focusing elements don't travel very far, making focus fairly quick (albeit noisy).The lens is WIDE. At 10mm, I can easily take a picture of a room and have all 4 walls in the photo. At 17mm, you have a good wide angle with minimal barrel distortion.

    A superb macro lens

    I have used Tokina lenses for several years and they have always been more than satisfactory. Tokinas are built like tanks, with solid metal alloy bodies that make Canon's top of the line L-series lenses look cheap in comparison. This makes them rather heavy, but I don't find them uncomfortable.This 100mm f/2.8 macro lens is a great value. The differences between it and the more expensive are minor at best; most significantly, the Tokina extends when focusing, whereas the Canon does not. At the short distances often involved in macrophotography (focusing on objects only a few inches away), extending the lens can be a minor annoyance, requiring you to pull the camera back a bit to keep the framing consistent, but you get used to it. (Competing lenses from Sigma and Tamron also... 4/5 Craig Dickson (San Mateo, CA USA) - See all my reviews, March 2, 2009

It has great clarity and color. It's very impressive to me. I've spent almost $5000.00 on Canon glass in the last two years and I'm just photo hobbiest. I know you are saying why spend that much for a hobby but this may someday be a full time hobby for me. Get this lens, you won't be sorry for what you get.

I have had several Tokina lenses, so that was a surprise.Minor niggle: Zoom ring could be wider.Overall, this represents a great value in its class, and from what I see, others have better AF performance than I did. So, I might have given 5 stars had my copy been good with AF. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 22, 2013

    SAME AS CANON 17-40mm PICTURE QUALITY

    0 4/5 art4life - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Tokina 17-35mm F4.0 AT-X Pro FX Lens for Canon EOS Digital SLR Cameras (Accessory) I both this lens thinking it wil be like tokina 16-28 in terms of picture quality . Well it's NOT like tokina 16-28 . The 16-28 was much better quality then 17-35 again picture quality (sharpness and color and contrast) . The build quality is very good on both of this lenses . Except slower auto focus then L lenses . But it's always correct . The problem I had with 16-28 is no filter . So this one actually take 82mm. But Quality is not better than canon 17-40. So why buy this lens if canon over all better lens , unless you really can't have any distortion in your picture then go with tokina 17-35.

This review is from: Tokina 17-35mm F4.0 AT-X Pro FX Lens for Canon EOS Digital SLR Cameras (Accessory) it captures light very good. I used it to shoot image at night and it gave a very nice color. The only problem is its auto focus it a little bit weird. I got some pics in blur. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 29, 2013

    Bargain FX Ultra Wide

    Pros:Center performance wide openCorner performance stopped downBuild QualityCons:Corner Performance Wide OpenFocus/Clutch Mechanism is ClunkyDesign Prohibits the use of FiltersEarly model lens cap (contact your local Tokina distributor for the new cap, THK Photo in the US)Bottom Line:Superb ultra wide angle for full frame, especially strong in the 16-24mm range, gets weaker by 28mm. Stepped down it can deliver crisp sharpness even in the most extreme corners. I give it 5 stars due to the price/performance ratio. I shoot test charts and real world images to confirm chart results. My recommendation for this lens is for FX/Full Frame cameras. For crop sensors get something lighter and cheaper.Review:AF performance is good, the lenses uses a new DC focusing motor. It isn't silent, but much quieter than screw drive. It works fast and accurately. I find the AF/MF clutch clunky to use... 5/5 E.

    Tokina 16 28 fx

    0 5/5 Nikonpro - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Tokina AT-X 16-28mm f/2.8 Pro FX Lens for Nikon (Accessory) I am usually one to stick with only Nikon products. I have everything that I need to shoot professionally expect a great wide angle. I have been renting or borrowing as i needed. I have used the Nikon 17-35 2.8 and the Nikon 16-35 4. I was not satisfied with either lens. I just bought the Tokina 16-28 2.8. This lens is SHARP! I have noticed some flare and reflection of light, but that is situational. The build quality is great. In my opinion this lens is sharper than the Nikon 17 35. 2.8, and has far less distortion than the Nikon 16 35 f4. I would suggest this lens to anyone that can not afford the Nikon 12 24. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , October 25, 2012

    Excellent, but beware of lens flare.

    This was the first SLR lens I purchased, originally for use with a D5100 but knowing I would eventually buy a full frame camera (now using a D600). Optically this lens is pretty fantastic. I've had no issues getting razor sharp images from either camera (much easier with the 600 as the 5100 has a pretty strong anti-aliasing filter). If you're worried about lens resolution, fear not as this thing is positively fierce in that department, though it does come with a few downsides.I have exactly three gripes with this lens. One is major, the other two not so much. First and foremost is lens flare. If you have a light source, any light source, within or just outside the frame, your image will have flare. Honestly I knew when purchasing a lens of this variety that this was going to be an issue, but I underestimated it by a fair margin. Any lens of this particular design is going to exhibit quite a bit of flare, however when compared to the Nikkor 14-24mm f/2.8 this one has an... 4/5 kendalltristan - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
