5.0 out of 5 stars Fast Sharp and Excellent Build March 10, 2009
By Casch
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 scenes (a bridge against a sky background) this is a real problem for both lenses but the Canon is MUCH better here. This is becoming less important as PhotoShop is able to remove it effectively.

-Lack of barrel distortion goes again to the Tokina which is very slight, especially for a ultra wide zoom. It is much better corrected than the Canon.

-Focus Speed Canon with their USM is fastest but not by much. However, the Canon is quieter too. I do like the clutch system of the Tokina once I got used to it. For manual focus (and I use that a lot) the Tokina is well damped, smooth and usable something that can't be said for the Canon.

-Flare Bad in both lenses but here Canon is better as well. Contra light is a demon in both lenses and care should be taken to always use the hood.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a great lens. November 30, 2008
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 smaller that the 10-22mm lenses but I don't feel that it was a problem. I value the 2.8 f-stop over the zoom range.

The lens is a heavier than the Canon 10-22mm. I personally do not have an issue with this even when packing it into the back country but it's something to be aware of.

Also, this lens is designed specifically for 1.6 crop factor cameras (XTi/400D/40D/etc) so if you end up buying a full frame body you'll need to replace this lens.

Bottom line: I recommend this lens.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 ATX Pro DX October 18, 2008
Verified Purchase
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 lenses.

I have posted four customer images above of Florence, a bath house in Pompeii, St Peters in Rome and a narrow street in Sorrento.

Update May 2009
Our photography group traveled to Antelope Canyon Arizona and this lens still impresses. Using a monopod for the visit there was counter to most others along using tripods. The guided tours at Upper Antelope permitted us only 3 minutes to get the shot before moving on. Although I had to use an ISO of 800 on the Canon 30D for most of the visit, the images were sharp corner to corner. DOF with this wide lens is huge so I used manual focus set on infinity and didn't worry about AF in the dim environment. I set aperture priority to f2.8 for the dark shots as most of them were. An outstanding lens.

4.0 out of 5 stars My first Tokina December 6, 2008
This is first lens I have ever used made by Tokina, and I have not been disappointed. For those who don't know Tokina is a company started by former Nikon engineers that design lenses made with Hoya glass. So this is basically a Nikon-like lens build with a canon mount. This is the only non-Canon lens I have.

First of all this lens is solid. It just feels like a well built lens. If you pick up the canon 10-22mm after holding this lens you will be left with the impression that the canon brand lens is cheap plastic. It does have a small range but almost works like a prime. I find myself using 11mm almost exclusively. Lens quality is excellent and it works great on a 1.6x (rebel xt). An interesting quirk is the focus ring. To change to manual focus you pull the focus ring towards you (this takes a few times to get used to, but is a much easier and faster way to change). I see they have drastically reduced the price of the canon 10-22mm since this lens came out, but this is still a fair amount cheaper for a much better built lens. The only reason I could see getting the 10-22mm at this point is that it has a larger range. The whole point of a wide angle lens is to take wider pictures. So you really are comparing a 10mm to a 11mm lens. Factor in price and build quality and this will not disappoint you.

Pros-
build quality
focus ring
lower f-stop than 10-22mm
comes with hood (add $30 to canon for this)
price compared to 10-22mm
lens quality is fantastic

Cons-
not designed to work with full frame cameras (made for 1.6 factor cameras)
less range than 10-22mm
little heavy
can't use built in flash on rebel xt because it causes a shadow

Bottom line - This is a better quality lens for less money than its Canon counterpart.
