Don't buy lenses from this vendor

Corrinne Horton, Amazon
21 September 2014
  • Summary: I'm pretty disappointed in the product I received from this vendor. It was obviously an open box item that had been returned several times because the lens was defective. It was not sharp at any aperture. I ended up returning it and buying another lens from Adorama which was very new and very sharp.

Not sharp to me

2 August 2014
  • Summary: I had to return this lens, it was simply not that sharp at f8 to f16 on my D800 or D4. I was going to use this for commercial landscape and real estate photography but it is not a sharp lens.

Overexposure Problems

Sharey, Amazon
1 June 2014
  • Summary: This lens was wildly erratic. I often got greatly overexposed photos no matter how I changed the settings. I had to shoot without a wide lens on many of my vacation pics because this lens was so unpredictable. When it worked it did fine, but I couldn't depend on it.

sample variation

ppires85, Amazon
14 May 2014
  • Summary: It's the second copy that I get. The lens really looks sharp, but the item just arrived and showed problems in the connectors. My previous copy that I returned had problems with focus. I'm not sure anymore if I'm going to try any other version.

Just go to B&H

MissE, Amazon
26 April 2014
  • Summary: This is a perfectly nice lens, just don't order it here. The tracking # said it had been signed for, but I never signed for it. Instead, it was dumped on my neighbor's porch. I live in an urban area, and this is a $700 item.

Sharper than 16-35; Won't honor warranty

Jesse L Summers, Adorama
21 June 2013
  • Excerpt: I loved this lens and used it lightly for two months; I bought it new from Adorama with warranty. I kept it in a dedicated sleeve in my backpack, only taking it out when shooting. I shot with it on five occasions. The AF mechanism quit working in the middle of a shoot after 2 months of ownership.
  • Pros: Consistent Output
  • Cons: Af Mechanism Frailty, Tokina Customer Support, Warranty
