Excerpt: Most of my work has been with Nikkor telephoto and macro lenses. But I wanted to try shooting the Perseid Meteor Shower and my 16-200mm is a bit slow for that at f3.5. Repeatedly in my research Tokina's 11-16mm f2.8 is mentioned. Then I looked and found it mentioned in Landscape related articles.
Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Focal length range, Widest F Stop
Excerpt: I've been using this lens for about two weeks and so far I love it. It has sharp focus and looks great wide up and at high ISOs. I bought it so I could open the aperture a bit wider than my Nikon 10-24 when shooting night photography.
Excerpt: I was looking for a wide-angle for my Sony A65, something a little wider than my standard 16-50mm zoom. This was a great bargain. I actually rented the lens before I bought it to check out the build quality and the image quality. Very happy with both.
Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: This is an awesome fast ultra-wide for any of Nikon's APS-C cameras. Takes great whole sky astrophotography images allowing a large amount of light in and giving you a longer exposure time before you start seeing star trails. Does beautifully at landscape images as well.
Excerpt: I've used this lens for a wide array shots and overall it performs excellent. Build quality is nice, weight not bad, and has reasonable focus speeds. Price range reasonable. The only thing is it takes a little getting used to switching from auto focus to manual focus with the focus ring.
Excerpt: I have been using this for almost 4 months now and I absolutely love this one. This lens very good in low light situations and captures sunsets very aptly. For landscape photography on apsc sensor cameras, this is a perfect fit. It adds up a new dimension to your photographs.
