  • Summary: the lens works well as advertised but the clarity is not very good. another thing is if you are getting this for sony i should warn you that it is not all that fast when it comes to focusing, but still it can capture a great picture as long as u understand how the lens works

Get This. Ignor The Rest

James S. Leseke "lesekejames", Amazon
20 November 2014
  • Summary: For the money this is the best super wide out there. Do not waste your money on Sony's effort, this is better, faster, less costly, better made. I got retired my Tamron 10-25 for this lens and could not be happier.

I am really happy with this lens and I recommend it.

  • Summary: This lens quality is amazing ; the border aberration is better that any order lens that I have tested. It works perfect in my Nikon D7100. This is my first Tokina lens but for sure it'll not been the last one.

I am disappointed in focus ring

James D. Ronan, Jr., Amazon
29 August 2014
  • Summary: I am disappointed in focus ring, unable to get mine to lock in manual focus which is a must for astrophotography. I am using a Sony A77. Other than that critical fault, lens seems okay, sharp, easy to use, good color rendition.

Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 AT-X 116 PRO DX SD review by pberdeaux

pberdeaux, slrgear.com
5 August 2014
  • Summary: This is one of the best ultra wide angle DT lens out here for your money. I've had this lens for about a year now with a Sony A77. It's a little soft around the edges at f2.8 but it does very well between f4-5.6, and is very sharp at f8-16.
  • Pros: Fast aperture/focus, great build quality, and smooth MF
  • Cons: Minor CA and Flare

Mixed feelings and possible alternative

Will Bueche, Amazon
30 July 2014
  • Summary: Extra-wide and extra-fast (for this price), this lens fills an undeniable need. But I have mixed feelings about this lens. My comments are based on use with a Sony a55. This lens confuses the camera's autofocus like no other.

Excellent lens

Marc Knarr, Amazon
30 June 2014
  • Summary: I bought this for use at aircraft museums where space is tight and the light is not ideal. This lens has been perfect for that use. The combination of fast and wide has resulted in all of shots being keepers. Auto focus is quick, but not really needed as everything is typically at infinity.

Soft wide open, nearly useles in low light, good in bright light

hardinplin, Ebay
8 June 2014
  • Summary: I found this lens to be a little soft. Even though it is f2.8 it is nearly useless in low light. I shoot lots of accident scenes for our fire co and wide open is not the best. In better light it does ok. I do not use it as much as I thought I would.
