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 of view, sometimes your auto-focus will lock in on an area other than your intended subject and when this happens you can quickly and smoothly make the transition to manual and adjust without fumbling for switches or removing your eye from the viewfinder. I might add that this lens seems very easy to focus accurately in manual and I have found it a pleasure to use and on occasions I just left it in manual for the entire shoot. I really have no issues with the auto-focus. It is spot on at least 95% of the time and gets there quickly and smoothly. Low light performance may be a bit more sluggish but I think focus performance on anyone's lens in low light is dependent upon a lot of variables. Speaking of low light, I have not found the F/4.Read more ›
After mulling the options for a month or so, I chose to give up the 1mm wide & gain the 24mm range on the long end. There's no doubt that the Tokina 11-16 is a very fine lens, but this lens is amazingly sharp, solidly built and produces exquisite images on my Canon 60D. I'm certainly glad I opted for this lens & so far haven't missed the 1 extra stop. Under most circumstances this works well as a walkaround lens, but I wouldn't feel that way if not for the 12-24mm range. As terrific as this lens is, I can't imagine how the even more highly rated 11-16 could outperform this beauty. Fast accurate AF, beautiful saturation & very nice contrast...this truly is a great lens.
for Real Estate and landscape photos. This lens has far exceeded my expectations it is fast and the images are very crisp and clear
I see the price went up $50 for the Tokina right after I bought it - assume this was due to the natural disasters that occurred in Japan at about the same time(?).

Fantastic lens. Got this when someone was selling it for $250, and I feel like I should owe Tokina more money. Read morePublished 9 months ago by Sicut
Sure, there are wider, more exotic and faster super wides for DX. However, Tokina takes the cake with best value for money and excellent optical and construction values. Read morePublished 9 months ago by Rudy

this lens is great for a short time, after approximately 100-200 photos it failed and fixing it is way over priced for the amount of pics on it!!! Read morePublished 12 months ago by Ed
very well made and super sharp. Well corrected and sharp all over at f8.Flare not a problem.Published on July 13, 2014 by Greg P.
Was teetering between 3 and 4 stars. This is a very good lens. I love the extreme wide angle (very hard to get on a crop sensor camera), and the build quality is very good. Read morePublished on June 21, 2014 by Thomas Wagener
