It was delivered the same-day - thanks to my Prime membership (Yay!). I have never ever done Night Sky Photography before. This lens basically was the motivation to do that. I picked a dark sky spot (check cleardarksky.com for a location near you) and mounted this lens on the Nikon D7100 setup on a tripod. Settings: ISO 3200-6400, Exposure lengths: 15"-25", WB: Auto-Daylight, Picture Setting: Vivid-Neutral, f/2.8, 11mm-12mm, Color temperature - Choose a cooler one, tending more towards the blues and blacks. First shot - see attachment! I cannot describe the joy of what I saw on the camera screen. Yes, there were more shots that followed. But this one was the first. A lot more shall follow.
I see this camera as a multi-purpose lens for night sky photos, wide open panoramic shots, near-fisheye shots @ 11mm, low light photography @ 15-16mm etc. This one is a keeper!
1) Super sharp anywhere from 12mm to 16mm. Slight vignetting at 11mm, but tolerable.
2) Love the manual/auto slip ring - takes a little learning, but super effective
3) No lens creep and feels very well built
4) Price point - can't be beat!
1) Short focal range compared to other options
2) Sigma has a 8-16 that may appeal to some - more fisheye than the Tokina / eliminates need for a separate fisheye lens

BAD NEWS if you think if anything goes wrong with this lens you’ll get coverage - YOU WILL NOT. THIS IS A GRAY MARKET lens and yet you wouldn’t know because the description leads you to believe otherwise.
So far, I’ve had no issues with it, but am VERY disappointed that if anything arises I’m not covered in the U.S.A. where I reside. Super disappointed to discover this in this way - wishing Amazon would nip this in the bud or force the dealers to be crystal clear. (UTM, inc. is listed as the dealer on my Amazon invoice even when I click on it today...)

Del servicio de Amazon poco nuevo que decir: como siempre un 10 en rapidez y seriedad.
La foto que adjunto está en Jpg sin retocar, tal y como se hizo. Era ya de noche y tiene una luz y una nitidez asombrosa
Getting the proper focal length or focal length range is crucial when selecting a lens. The first attraction to any ultra-wide zoom lens is just that ' the ultra-wide focal length range. Being a Tokina "DX" (Digital Format) lens, the Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 AT-X Pro DX II Lens has a smaller-than-full-frame image circle designed to work only on APS-C/1.6x/1.5x FOVCF DSLRs. The Tokina's 11-16mm provides an angle of view similar to a 17.6-25.6mm lens mounted on a full frame DSLR.
The Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 AT-X Pro DX II Lens makes up for any focal length range shortcomings with its wide maximum f/2.8 aperture available over the entire range of focal lengths. This lens can stop action in low light better than the rest of the available-at-review-time lenses in this class (aside from the version I model of this lens). The nearest competitor is the 2/3 stop darker Sigma 10-20mm f/3.5 EX DC HSM Lens. Thus, low light action is a use this lens is well suited for (though AF may be a limiting factor in shooting very fast-approaching subjects at short distances).
Keep in mind that built-in flash coverage on most DSLRs will not cover even the 16mm end of this lens' angle of view, so plan on an alternative method of flash lighting/diffusion if planning to use flash with this lens. An accessory flash, potentially with a diffuser, will handle this task nicely.
The Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 AT-X Pro DX II Lens delivers very good center sharpness wide open and shows slight improvement when stopped down. Corners at f/2.8 are obviously softer than the center, but not expected was that the version II lens is not looking as good as the version I lens in the f/2.8 corners at 15-16mm. It is not unusual for corners to be softer than the center at wide open apertures and this lens' corners image quality is not terrible at wider-than-15mm settings. By f/4, corners are looking better. By f/5.6, corners are looking very good and by f/8, they are great. The 16mm focal length remains this lens' weakest setting. I have been especially pleased with the real world image sharpness this lens delivers for landscape photography at f/8 or so.
The Tokina 11-16 has less distortion on not-too-close subjects than most competing lenses containing this focal length range (perhaps part of the benefit of a short focal length range), but it is not distortion-free. Some barrel distortion is present at 11mm. The barrel distortion transitions to nearly no distortion at 14-16mm.
The price of the Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 AT-X Pro DX II Lens is on the moderate side. This lens has the widest-available aperture in its class, and that fact is often responsible for higher prices. Thus, that the 11-16 II is not the highest-priced ultra-wide angle zoom lens is a very positive feature. Many of the competing lenses are more expensive, though some remain less expensive that the 11-16 II (including the Tokina 12-28mm f/4 sibling).
The Tokina 11-16 is a lens of bests and worsts, but its price tag falls in the middle of those of this group. For the money, the Tokina 11-16 is a very strong performer optically and a very good deal.
