  • Excerpt: As a wildlife photographer looking to do more landscape work I was lusting after the Nikon 14-24 when I discovered this Tokina. The reviews sounded good, DxO review was impressive so I ordered one. That first unit didn't enthuse me at all.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged

Flare that would make Pink Floyd proud...

  • Excerpt: The Tokina 16-28 is a sharp lens, but is betrayed by poor focus accuracy (both on my D800e and D700 bodies) as well as massive weight. At 2.2 pounds this is a heavy lens. Although it sports a rubber gasket around the lensmount, it is too thin to make contact with the mount on the body (at least on...

Is it really that sharp?

  • Excerpt: You it's that sharp. Compared it to my 24-70 L f4 and this tokina lens at 2.8 is sharper. ( maybe I'm wrong but I don't think so). Distortion is a bit of an issue. I wish I had less distortion but a man can only wish.

  • Excerpt: As an advanced amateur I like 2.8 speed lenses. This lens does not disappoint. Sharp, sturdy and seems well made. I have two complaints, which I knew going in.....No filters can be used and it has a somewhat limited zoom range. (1.8X) I bought it for the price.
  • Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy, Limited zoom range, No Filters

Once you've tried black you'll never go back

  • Excerpt: With this lens' I've now completed my 5D Mark III outfit. The others in my Pelican are Tammies; the 24-70 VC, 70-200 VC, and 150-600 VC. All have superb performance and excellent IQ that rival or exceed the WHITE ones, but at 1/3 the cost.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Filters Don't Need Them

Now I've shot black I'll never go back. Great IQ at 1/3 cost

Charlie Coyote, B&H Photo
27 December 2015
  • Excerpt: Superb IQ and excellent build quality with a 3 year warranty. Tokina gives more value in this zoom range, but they back it up three times what the big C does. Having had and used several Canon lenses and then comparing them to the Tamron 24-70 VC, 70-20 VC, 150-600 VC and Tokina 16-28 that I own, I...

Heavy yet capable alternative to the Nikon's F/4

  • Excerpt: So far, so good with nice sharp images with good contrast and reliable focusing. The focusing could be faster but it's worth the $$ savings and not that bad. There is noticeable vignetting but it doesn't really bother me. Also, it seems they have successfully resolve the QC issues with this lens.
