Worth every penny!

  • Summary: I bought this specifically to do real-estate and events (I hate events so I refused to buy a 24-70). It is very sharp for those purposes and vary much rivals the nikon and canon equivalents for 1/3rd the price. Distortion is hardly a problem, which is not true for my other Nikon option. I will say it has some pretty obvious chromatic aberration but that's easily fixed on lightroom, photoshop, aperture, etc.

Good Bang for the Buck

  • Summary: I bought this lens to use with my Canon 6D as a replacement of my Canon 10-22mm on a 7D. I'm pleasantly surprised at the quality and build of the lens for the price. Results are comparable to the Canon 10-22mm. Better build with good sharpness and low distortion. AF can be a little noisy but nothing to complain about. Seeing some CA but not as bad as in the Canon 10-22mm.

A practical review - this fills a much needed void in the wide-angle game.

  • Summary: This review is based on practical application and it's ability to fit a specific need. Look elsewhere if you want a technical review of sharpness, light transmission, aberration, vignetting, blah blah blah. If you're looking at this lens, you're probably in the same position I was in not long ago and wrestling with the same tough decision. You have a full frame camera. You probably bought it not long ago.

Awesome bang for the buck!

  • Excerpt: I was a happy user of Tokina 11-16 DX lens for years. So picking a wide angle lens for my D600 was pretty easy. A promo discount helped. I heavily rely on a Lightroom profile for this lens.
  • Pros: Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy

Great Landscape Lens

  • Summary: I have had this lens long enough to put through the paces now. Mounted on a D800 and tripoded up with a remote trigger i shot it through all the stops and focal ranges with a constant focal point. It is soft wide open and sharpens up around f5.6 and is best from f8 to f10 where diffraction settles in. This is no problem for someone like me who shoots at f8 to f10 almost always. The sweet spot for this lens is around 20mm at f9.

Great Landscape Lens

  • Excerpt: Got this lens mounted on my D800 now and have had time to put it through the paces. Tested it on a tripod with a remote trigger with a contant focal point and ran it through the stops. This lens is soft up to f5.6 and then it sharpens up and is best at f8 to f10 where diffraction settles in. THis is true through all the focal ranges but a little worse at 17mm and 35mm.
  • Pros: Low distortion, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Soft under f5 6

SAME AS CANON 17-40mm PICTURE QUALITY

  • Summary: I both this lens thinking it wil be like tokina 16-28 in terms of picture quality . Well it's NOT like tokina 16-28 . The 16-28 was much better quality then 17-35 again picture quality (sharpness and color and contrast) . The build quality is very good on both of this lenses . Except slower auto focus then L lenses . But it's always correct . The problem I had with 16-28 is no filter . So this one actually take 82mm. But Quality is not better than canon 17-40.

Sharp and contrasty when it hits.

  • Summary: I purchased this as my new WA lens. However, it was not what I hoped for. PROS: Great range Constant aperture Great build quality Smooth operation Sharp as a tack (when in focus, see below). CONS: Somewhat softer at the long end, but not bad. AF operation what hit and miss on this copy (Front focus errors sometimes). I have had several Tokina lenses, so that was a surprise. Minor niggle: Zoom ring could be wider.

Better than a 17-40L for me.

  • Excerpt: I shoot mostly weddings and portraits and have been through several wide angle lenses for both crop and FF cameras. My workhorse body is a FF so I generally stick to FF compatible lenses and I needed a wide angle lens that I was happy with both the performance and price. So far this lens is it for me after owning the Canon 17-40L, 16-35L v1, Sigma 12-24, and selling each one because I wasn't happy using them.
  • Pros: Accepts filters, Strong Construction, Very little distortion, Weather sealed
