Excerpt: Clean, sharp, and looks great on my 7D. Solid feel and build. Aesthetically it has a solid picture. Purchased specifically to ride my gimbal and so far it is amazing. I have yet to find something I do not like.
Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Excerpt: Bought this lens primarily for landscape photography after much research. It was between this and Nikon's 10-24mm. I went with Tokina because of the fixed aperture. I wasn't fully sure of what type of landscapes I would ultimately be shooting, but wanted the fixed, wide aperture for low light situations. Haven't tried it out in the field too much, but my test shots have been sharp and the color is bright.
Excerpt: Some background first: I purchased my first dslr (Nikon D7000) a couple months ago. I've spent a lot of time going over the settings and experimenting with the exposure triangle in manual mode. I've been borrowing my girlfriend's Nikkor 18-200mm which has been my main lens so far. The lens: The Tokina 11-16mm was my first big lens purchase. I am extremely pleased so far.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus
Excerpt: needed a wide angle for my GH4/speedbooster combo. First tried the rokinon 26mm T2.2 but returned it due to distortion in the center of the image at high Tstops. Exchanged for the tokina and like it so far. With the speedbooster, the fstop can go as low as 2.0 and is sharp all around (no distortion). i'd recommend for abyone needing a decently priced wide angle for their cameras.
Excerpt: Just started taking pics in the desert. Produces images that put you right in the subject matter. It seems very sturdy. I'm not sure if the automatic functions work as dependably as my Nikon lenses on my Nikon camera but this could be user error.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I bought this for my D7100. I haven't used it much, but so far I'm pleased with it, especially the wide angle and larger aperture (compared to my zoom lenses). It feels well-built and focuses well. Great lens for landscape pictures!
