Sad that it failed with so few photos taken!!!

Ed, Amazon
27 July 2015
  • Summary: 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!!! I cannot in confidence recommend anyone purchase from Tokina if you want a long lasting product!!!!

DOES NOT SHOOT WELL AT 12mm

special edition, Amazon
29 March 2013
  • Summary: I found that this lens brings in the dreaded vignetting (dark edges of the picture) when used at 12mm. For the average shooter who wants to concentrate on landscape it could work because a little vignetting in landscapes can look good. However, for architectural shots, this lens falls short.

An instant failure

Amazon Customer, Amazon
12 July 2011
  • Summary: I bought this lens at Amazon.com in May 2011 and brought it back to Germany. Here I hooked it up to my canon 7d. I was instantly rewarded with an "Error01" massage and nothing else happened. As is the lens works well as a paper weight.

HUGE Disappointment

iriskw1, Amazon
24 March 2011
  • Summary: Because of the overwhelming positive reviews for this particular lens, I did not hestitate to buy it. The reviews indicated "great sharpness" and "superior construction". Unfortunately, the copy I received was a disaster. It was very soft - all over - even at the sharpest aperture of f8.

Lens Did Not Work

Katherine E. Smits, Amazon
23 January 2010
  • Summary: The lens did not work at all. I returned it and the company sent a new one but ignored my written request to send the new one to a different address, so I have not been able to get it and try it on the camera. I would not recommend using this company.

Gefährlicher Kauf

  • Summary: Ich habe leider dieses Objektiv bei WeserEms Foto Oldenburg vor Weihnachten gekauft. Die Bilder davon waren unscharf. Vieleicht Problem mit Optik oder angeblich einfach nicht elektronisch kompatibel mit Canon 40D. Bekommen am 17.12. und am 6.1.

Tokina 12-24mm Pro DX II für Nikon D80

Leipzig44, Amazon
25 December 2012
  • Summary: Der Autofokus funktionierte nach etwas mehr als 2 Jahren nicht mehr. Ich hatte das Objektiv bei einem kleineren Nikon-Händler vor Ort erworben. Er schickte das Objektiv an die Service-Stelle nach München, diese leitete es nur durch in die Niederlande.
