Goes dead after 35 days!

  • Excerpt: I was a fan of Tokina 11-16DX lens and had it in my bag for years. So I did not hesitate to buy this one after FX upgrade. I was pleased with build and image quality for all 35 days I used it. Only to find it broken last Friday. Aperture lever no longer controls aperture and there is a rattling sound when I shake it. I am stunned. Adorama obviously refers me to Tokina. Now my investment is tied for unforseable future.
  • Pros: Image quality, Profile In Lightroom4, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Unreliable

This lens sucks!

  • Summary: I can't believe that a lens can be this horrifically soft. I used to rock the Tokina 11-16 EF-S on my Canon 7D and it was pretty good. Not the sharpest, but definitely passable for the price and ultra wide angle with minimal distortion. When I bought my 5D mark iii, I sold the Tokina 11-16 and bought this 17-35 to replace it (since the 5D is full format and not compatible with EF-S lenses).
