Tokina 11-16mm f:2.8 AT-X 116 Pro DX Lens

Product Summary

Overview

This ultrawide DX format (APS-C) lens offers a wide angle coverage of 11-16mm. mounted on a DX camera the lens has the same field of view as that of a 17-24mm lens mounted on a FX (full frame DSLR). The constant fast aperture of f/2.8 provides a lot of opportunities to shoot in low light or literally freeze action if that’s what you’re looking for. This lens is ideally suitable for the purpose of landscape photography and also for architectural shots. This lens is also suitable for taking group photos from a tight angle.

The lens features the one-touch focus clutch mechanism that enables a photographer to move from auto to manual focus and vice versa is present in this lens. If you’re a big fan of full-time manual focusing this may take a while to get used to. There is no MF-AF switch and everything is accomplished by snapping the focus ring. The lens has internal focusing elements which mean it will not extend when focusing. The angle of view on a DX format is 104 – 84°.

Overall image quality is very sharp. It is arguably the sharpest wide angle lens for an APS-C format DSLR; never mind comparable Nikon and or Canon lenses for APS-C DSLRs. The lens construction consists of 13 elements arranged in a total of 11 groups. 9 aperture blades form the lens diaphragm and giving it a maximum wide aperture of f/2.8 while also stopping down to f/22. Overall weight of the lens is 560 grams and it takes a filter of 77mm. Available at Amazon | Adorama | B&H
