The edges are a little soft at 17mm but very fixable.

I've been shooting for almost 10 years now and have never been afraid of 3rd party lenses.

First off, mechanics: The build quality is typical of Tokina; that is to say: very good.

Before purchasing this lens, I'd been searching for a reasonable ultra-wide-angle lens for my D800. This was among 4 or 5 options in consideration. I love my Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 Pro DX Digital Zoom Lens - Nikon for DX, and had wanted an equivalent lens for full frame.

This is my third Tokina lens, behind the 11-16mm f/2.8 and 100mm macro. I'd been satisfied with those two, and so decided to give this lens a try.

First off, mechanics:

The build quality is typical of Tokina; that is to say: very good. It feels perfectly solid in the hands, and I doubt anyone would complain about the quality of the construction. One thing that I'd noticed, however, is that the zoom and focus rings are a bit more loose than the 11-16mm. This perhaps makes the lens a bit more usable, but at the same time gives it a different feel than I'm used to.

The focus and zoom rings are spaced well, and allow for easy manual focus. One thing to note: when changing the clutch from AF to MF, or vice versa, the focus setting can change slightly. This can sometimes be obnoxious, though it will not matter for most use.

Despite, on paper, only being slightly larger than the 11-16mm, make no mistake, this is a larger lens. It is just generally bigger in all regards. Despite being fairly large, it 'looks' like an appropriate size on the D800. The 82mm filter thread is annoying, but it is better than none at all. Anything other than a UV filter at this size can be a bit pricey.

Second, optics:

I've not had as much chance as I'd like to to 'real world' testing, so most of these findings are based off of test-type environments.

This review is based on practical application and it's ability to fit a specific need. Look elsewhere if you want a technical review of sharpness, light transmission, aberration, vignetting, blah blah blah.

If you're looking at this lens, you're probably in the same position I was in not long ago and wrestling with the same tough decision. You have a full frame camera. You probably bought it not long ago. You've already bought solid f/4 or f/2.8 tele zoom and normal zoom lenses. Now you're looking to round out the package with a wide-angle zoom but you don't have an unlimited budget.

The options I considered were several. Below is a list of reasons why I did not choose these lenses. They all have their strengths and, to the right person, warrant the purchase over this Tokina 17-35. I knew my intended use, how much I'd use it, and minimum requirements. This definitely helped in making my final decision. Your needs (and budget) may be different and this is only my opinion. That said:

Nikon 14-24 f/2.8 - Too expensive, limited zoom
Nikon 16-35 f/4 - Too expensive (very close 2nd)
Nikon 17-35 f/2.8 - Still a little pricey, used market only, quite heavy
Nikon 18-35 f/3.5-4.5 - Still expensive for what you get, lower build quality, not constant aperture, 18mm isn't wide enough
Tokina 16-28 f/2.8 - Does not allow use of filters, 28mm is a little too short

Those are the lenses I juggled with in my head. There are other wide zooms out there but experience has taught me to stick with Nikon or Tokina glass. However, I've read a few reports that Tamron and Sigma quality control is on the rise.

The Nikon 16-35 f/4 was the closest contender for me.

I have had this lens long enough to put through the paces now. Mounted on a D800 and tripoded up with a remote trigger i shot it through all the stops and focal ranges with a constant focal point. It is soft wide open and sharpens up around f5.6 and is best from f8 to f10 where diffraction settles in. This is no problem for someone like me who shoots at f8 to f10 almost always. The sweet spot for this lens is around 20mm at f9. The edges are a little soft at 17mm but very fixable. Distortion is almost none and that's quite a statement as this lens cost far less than the Nikon 17-35 which has considerable distortion at 17mm. This lens accepts 82mm filters where the 16-35 or 14-24 will not (yes, they are expensive).The build quality is top notched as one would expect from a Pro Tokina lens. Focus is fast and accurate. Aside from the soft focus on large apertures i would give this lens a 5 star rating. On a full frame it's very nice. Don't consider this for a crop sensor as it makes no sense. Last thing is to remember this is an ultra wide and expect what comes with that.You can't shoot at 17mm (effective) and expect perfection across the frame. Aside from maybe a high end Zeiss with manual focus (and you have more money than i do) this is as good as it gets for landscape.

I purchased this as there were mostly 5 star ratings and I was looking for a UWA lens for my D700. Since I had the fantastic Tokina 11-16 (original non-motor) for my D90, I thought this lens would be an excellent buy too. I was wrong. I got a few usable pictures from it but the CA was horrible and the corners, and not extreme corners, were mushy. they were horrible at F4, and stopped down to 5.6 or F8 was an improvement but still had some "mushiness" and blur. May have been a bad copy? I don't know. I love my 11-16 Tokina, but I decided to return this model.

After finding the Nikon 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5G ED AF-S NIKKOR Lens for Nikon Digital SLRs, it looked like a best buy for my needs. It is actually (18mm) equal to 12mm on my old Tokina, in DX format. It may be $150 more, and variable aperture, but it is 3.5 at 18mm which 18-20mm is where I'll be using this wide angle at mostly. It takes 77mm filters which are a common great size for pro lenses. I didn't buy the Tokina 16-28 because it doesn't take filters and it had some problems too at wide open. The Nikon lens should retain more value, as I mentioned takes common filters, is reviewed as being sharp by most accounts, and should be fantastic for landscapes, architecture, weddings, and car shows.

Sorry to break up this party with a three star rating. Was this lens usable? Yes, for me I could have adapted for $600. Is there better out there for a little more cost? IMO absolutely! YMMV

* UPDATE 5-14-2013 *

I ordered and today received the Nikon AF-S 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5G lens as mentioned above.
