I bought this lens for a trip to Zion National Park for some nice landscapes. Paired up with my D7000 I must say that this lens produces very sharp photos. The stock 18-105mm lens just doesn't compare. With all these great features, it came with some flaws as well.
First thing is the AF. This lens has some crazy back-focusing issues. Even with the AF fine tune, it just doesn't focus on the subject properly. This really only happens when shooting wide open at f2.8-3.5. Sure this is a landscape lens so you wouldn't be shooting at such a high aperture anyways, but I still don't like the idea.
Another flaw was the lens flares. If you shoot landscapes at noon, you're bound to have harsh rays. And with that light, you get these ugly blotches of light in your pictures. It gets really annoying.
Also with every wide angle lens you get distortion on the corners of your pictures and this lens is no exception. Of course you can always adjust that in post so it's no big deal.
Overall this is a pretty good lens that produces sharp images and is really good deal for what you get. As long as you avoid midday sun and don't shoot too much at 2.8 then this lens is an excellent choice for the average photographer!
So last summer when I was shopping for a DX WA of my own, the Nikon 10-24 3.5-4.5 seemed like a no brainer. I figured I would use it mostly wide open at 10mm, so the slightly larger aperture and wider end seemed like a step up. However, after using it for a while I was never really happy with the sharpness of the images my copy delivered. It was good but not great (I use WA's to feature a subject prominently in the frame, not for landscapes, so I like to shoot close to wide open if possible.)
I didn't have access to the Nikon 12-24 f/4 anymore to compare to, but after discovering the Tokina 11-16 f/2.8, I decided to look into the Tokina 11-16 as a possible replacement.
After almost a year and a lot of research, I decided to go for a Tokina 11-16. Since I still had the 10-24, I did tripod comparisons with a remote shutter, comparing the lenses at 11mm f/3.5, 11mm f/5.6, 11mm f/8, 16mm f/4, 16mm f/5.6, 16mm f/8 from exactly the same position, without moving the tripod.
In every shot comparison the Tokina images at 100% were obviously sharper than the Nikon images - just as I suspected, and as my research suggested. Wonderful! Now, I may have received a great copy of the Tokina, and had a not-so-great copy of the Nikon. But in my real-world tests using the Nikon previously, I never thought the sharpness was "bad" - just not amazing. And I always wondered if starting at f/2.8 meant a sharper f/8 when I got there. The answer for me is: it does. This Tokina's sharpness is great! As a bonus, I get f/2.8 throughout the limited range if I need it.
So, in summary...
TOKINA 11-16 PROS:
- Sharp. Sharper than the Nikon 10-24 between 11-16mm and f/4-8.
- Fast. Option of using f/2.8 throughout the range.
- Solid. This lens feels pro grade and the Nikon feels plasticky.
- Price! Remarkably, this lens is currently $200 less expensive brand new then the Nikon 10-24 is, brand new.
TOKINA 11-16 CONS:
- Range. Less range than the 10-24. Sometimes being able to go to 24mm was handy and meant I wouldn't need to swap lenses.
TOKINA 11-16 NEUTRAL:
- Color/Contrast. Color overall seems better delivered on the Nikon. Although to be fair, I didn't test for this (i.e. used AWB in all shots.) Contrast seems to be about the same as the Nikon.
As a final note, I was concerned that the Auto Distortion Control menu option on my Nikon DSLR would be greyed out with the Tokina 11-16 as it is with my old discontinued Tokina 50-135. But the answer is, it is not! The camera recognizes the lens for Auto Distortion Control. Meaning I can get straight lines SOOC just like I did with the Nikon lens. Very convenient if you're like me and try to get as much right as possible in the camera to avoid post processing.
