Good value for landscape work

MHarris, Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased this as a more affordable alternative to Canon's 16-35L, which I rent often. After using it for a week, I decided to return it. I really wanted to love this lens, but it's just not anywhere close to the 16-35L in terms of image quality. For my needs, this lens isn't sharp enough, despite the reviews I read, and creates too much distortion.

Sharp, but the flare was unacceptable.

Ed Matthews "Ed", Amazon

  • Summary: I did find the lens to be sharp, but the flare made it unusable for me. I did one real estate shoot with it and found some of the shots to be unusable due to the flare from window light, it was sunny outside, but the window was not facing the sun so the amount of flare really surprised me.. I'm returning it.

First look review

Sean, Amazon

  • Summary: Okay this lens came in the mail today and the first thing I noticed was 'damn, this lens is heavy!' Its the weight of my D3. I took a couple of shots and it looks to be good. Build quality is not as good as Nikon but its supposed to compare to the 14-24. I will update this review once I do some more testing. Also, the rate went up seventy two dollars after my purchase. Ha!

Round 1 - Going back!

KRob78, Amazon
28 June 2013
  • Summary: I was hoping for a lot out of this lens, given the reviews. I think I got a bad copy. f/2.8 is useless and totally un-sharp, even at center... The other issue is the AF motor. I was expecting loud but my copy often will make a grinding noise that you can even feel in your hands when you change focus. It's easy to do going from infinity to something close or visa versa... I can't help but think that little metal or plastic filings are filling up the inside of the lens...

Good, not great

  • Summary: I needed a wide angle lens for indoor architectural shots. There are a million reviews of this lens out there, I won't rehash them. Bottom line, there are few wide angle lens' out there at this price point. This lens, for the price, is worth it.

Auto Focus Stopped Working

Ty, Amazon
29 April 2012
  • Summary: I was using the lens to take test shots around my house and the autofocus stopped working. It would hunt a bit and not reach a focus point. The images it took before that were excellent. I'm sending it back and hoping I just got a bad one.

  • Excerpt: Владельцем объектива не являюсь. Устроил ему тестирование в магазине. Цена была очень заманчива (19 000 со всеми скидками, т.к. одна очень известная сеть магазинов распродавала всю Токину, уходя от продажи этого бренда), почитал положительные отзывы и решил купить. Но давно убеждён, что оптику ВСЕГДА нужно внимательно тестировать и осматривать на своём фотоаппарате (у меня D700) и, если это возможно, на более новом и продвинутом (на сегодняшний день для меня это D800).
  • Pros: Хороший конструктив.
  • Cons: Резкость на f2.8 по сравнению с золотыми кольцами неудовлетворительна, нет возможности использовать светофильтры, Никону 14-24 это ещё можно простить, но в Токине не 14 мм, а лишь 16мм...

  • Excerpt: Купил для пейзажей. Все устраивало, качество съемки, конструктив- отлично...НО !!! Пока не произошла неприятность- упала камера со штативом и объектив ударился о камень. Выщербина на выпуклом стекле- 800 баксов улетели на помойку за 2 секунды. Если бы стоял защитный фильтр- вероятность разбития самой линзы была бы намного меньше. Больше подобных объективов у меня категорически не будет. Думайте сами- кто-то локтем толкнет, камешек от машины прилетит- и тю-тю...
  • Pros: Хорошее качество картинки
  • Cons: Выпуклая линза, невозможность одеть защитный фильтр- в итоге стекло улетело в помойку.
