Very good lens

Thomas Wagener "Tom", Amazon
21 June 2014
  • Summary: Was teetering between 3 and 4 stars. This is a very good lens. I love the extreme wide angle (very hard to get on a crop sensor camera), and the build quality is very good. The zoom action and autofocus aren't Canon quality, but then, neither is the price. They are on par with some of the cheaper Canons, I suppose. The image quality is middle of the road.

Good optics - poor AF

  • Summary: I bought this lens for my EOS camera four years ago. I have been using it mostly for landscapes, often stopped down at the widest setting. The results have been mostly nice and sharp and I like them. Ultra wide angle gives such exciting perspective and is so useful in tight places. The lens has a lot of CA (chromatic aberration) - purple or green fringing on high contrast borders, particularly in the corners of the picture.

  • Summary: - very quite and speedy AF motor - good building quality , feel firm in hand - sharp results - excellent price - need to make sure that the len hood is fully in place, otherwise you get some shade on the picture border... - hope it will not break down after some use as reported by other....

  • Summary: PROS: -Prosumer build quality (much better than the average Nikon consumer stuff) -Very affordable, especially for a UWA zoom -SHARP! very sharp -Excellent zoom and focus ring feel -Internal zooming and focusing (this is surprisingly nice, especially if you have never had an internal zooming lens) CONS: -Extremely high chromatic aberration/color fringing in the edges (not extreme edges, just outside of the center.

Excellent lens at fantastic price

  • Summary: As a full-time photojournalist I depend on wide angle shots to really "tell the story." This Tokina lens does everything I need it to do. The pictures are crisp, very contrasty, and sharp, even wide open. And like most Tokinas, it's built like a tank! The price is unbelievable, too. For half the cost of a similarly built Nikon you get the Nikon quality (you really do ... I should know, I've shot the Nikon pro glass too).

Great 3rd Party lens

dexter, Amazon
20 March 2013
  • Summary: The only reason I only gave 4 stars,its because of the RED stripe designed on the lens.If they just stick on the appearance from the first version which really look alike NIKON 12-24 i would make it 5 STARS.Overall the performance & the built of the lens is 5 stars.

Amazing lens, one of my favorites

jalagl, Amazon

  • Summary: I've had this lens for about 4 years, and have always been surprised by the image and build quality of this lens. I chose between this and the Canon 10-22, and at the end don't regret my decision one bit. This lens is built like a tank, and has been with me in rough environments taking great pictures all over the world. It is definitely a great value. The f/4 aperture works great for outdoor pictures, which is the main use I've given to this lens.

great lens

David M, Amazon
23 February 2013
  • Summary: the really wide angle takes some adjustment on my part, but the images are sharp and clean at all apertures and focal lengths....I am not sorry I purchased the lens but I don't see me using it a ton....I tend to take photos of things farther away and want to make them big......this thing gives a great panoramic view which so far is not my bag.....so my workhorse is the old 80-200mm Nikon I have.
