Excerpt: Love the lens for all around wide angle needs. Only Reason I gave it 4 out of 5 is because the lens flare throws off a rainbow effect. Also the adapters to put a UV Filter or any filter in genral costs hundreds of dollars. Beides that I would recomend it!
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I need a wide zoom for my full frame camera. Look at three different lens. I read all the reviews for the lens. The final was the price. Took it out this weekend to try it out. This is a awesome lens. I was able to shoot everything I needed and was very happy with the results.
Pretty good lens but be aware of the possible "error" issue with Canon

Summary: You pretty much have 2 choices - going with very expensive original Canon glass or with this Tokina product. If you are a professional and you use wide angle a lot I say go with Canon. I didn't plan on using this lens a lot so I decided to save some money and bought Tokina.
Excerpt: I run real estate photography business, so wide angle lens is the most used one. We previously used Nikon 16-35 F4. I spent lot of time pixel peeking comparing the two on D800. Wide open Tokina a bit softer than Nikon. At F4 the sharpness is very close.
Excerpt: Not perfect, but it's a zoom, so I'm not expecting perfect. Slight distortion, but it's correctable in PS. Reasonably sharp, maybe besting the Canon by a small bit. Great lens at any price, great bargain.
Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction
Excerpt: Right out of the box I loved this lens. I don't know why everyone thinks its so heavy maybe they are use to prime lenses. To me is is about the same as my Nikon 24-70mm 2.8 lens. After taking about 20 shots inside and outside all parts of the image where sharp.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Summary: Since I haven't been able to spend a lot of time with this lens, I'll be doing a first impressions review and hopefully will be able to update this review in a few weeks time. When compared to my other "high-end" Canon lens, the 70-300mm EF USM, this lens compliments it very well.
Excerpt: I found a very good lens sincerely , although I had not before a wide angle lens , the results are very good and left me more than satisfied. Undoubtedly recommend this lens. In quality-money is a great choice.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: Short version of this review: In terms of sharpness and overall image quality, this lens blows away Nikon's 16-35 and Tamron's 15-30. And that's despite the Tokina costing a fraction of the other two. Absolutely remarkable.
