Tokina AF 11-16mm f/2.8 AT-X Pro DX (Canon) - Review / Lab Test Report
1 May 2010
Conclusion: The Tokina AF 11-16mm f/2.8 AT-X Pro DX is an impressive ultra-wide zoom lens especially with respect to its resolution characteristic. It is extremely sharp at all zoom and aperture settings with the only exception of some corner softness at 16mm @ f/2.8. You can spot some light falloff at max. aperture specifically at the wide-end of the zoom range but the issue is already well controlled from f/4 onwards. The level of distortions is comparatively low for such a lens.
Tokina AF 11-16mm f/2.8 AT-X Pro DX (Canon) - Review / Lens Test Report
31 October 2008
Conclusion: The Tokina AF 11-16mm f/2.8 AT-X Pro DX is currently the best ultra-wide angle zoom lens for Canon EOS APS-C DSLRs. The resolution is impressively high throughout the zoom range (albeit a short one) and across the image field. Vignetting is really only a problem at 11mm @ f/2.8 but otherwise the issue is very well controlled. The level of distortions is comparatively low. Typical for most Tokina lenses it has one weakness: lateral CAs which are very high at all settings.
