  • Summary: Do not buy this. This lens failed on me the day I started using it. Sent it back to Tokina and it was returned with the same problem. Now I'm sending it back again.

DANGEROUS to your camera. Do not buy.

  • Summary: When zoomed out to 17mm, the rear element of this lens can block the return path of your camera's mirror! I did this a couple times on my D750 before I realized what was happening. What I observed was that aft er taking a shot, the mirror would get stuck in the up position.

Monumental design failure, or did I get a dud lens?

  • Summary: On my Nikon D600, when I open the lens up to it's widest (17mm), the inner lens actually touches the camera mirror and stops it from closing again after taking the shot. If I want to see through the viewfinder again (for example to take another picture!

Nokina for me

  • Excerpt: I have been wanting a wide angle zoom for a couple years but have never really wanted to dump the money on a Canon L lens. I thought that this lens would be the ticket, it's not. This lens has been nothing but problems.
  • Pros: Nice Bokeh, Sharp Focus Sometimes, Very sharp images
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Feels fragile, Slow Focus, Weak Casing

  • Pros: Image quality, Profile In Lightroom4, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Unreliable

Not as good as 11mm - 16mm

  • Excerpt: I have a 11mm-16mm Pro II from Tokina and have loved it. Upgraded from DX to FX and had to have similar lens for full frame. Having loved my DX Tokina I did not hesitate to try an FX version. Tried for about 30 pictures on a hike and could tell it was fuzzy or soft just from view finder.
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Poor in Low Light, Slow Focus

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.
