    Great shots, Bob, and I love that out of the box technique. Very sharp and well composed.

    I read a great review by Ken Rockwell that sold me on buying the lens. Ken was right so I continue to repect his opinion. More photos with the Tokina Feb 16, 2012.

    Anyone have some new updates on the Tokina? I am seriously thinking about getting one.

    I bought the Tokina a couple of months ago and I'm really pleased with it. It's very, very sharp and I love the 2.8 when I use it indoors such as museums and churches.

    These lenses are very wide compared to 18mm so you need to choose your shots so to speak as stuff gets small quick. Ideally try one before you buy.

    The build quality is very solid which is nice.

    One thing I notice is vignetting from the polarizer or cokin filter holder at 11mm. Not really a fault of the lens, it's just very wide.

    Oh did I mention it's sharp!! I looked at reviews on sigma, tokina and Nikon for a month before buying this, and I didn't let price influence my decision. To support that point, when nikon comes out top such as my 70-200 2.8 vrii I will spend the extra cash, but in this case I don't think the iq could be better.

    Slightly off topic, my wife got the 10.5 fisheye at the same time and this actually works far better than I thought. Combined with dxo software to straighten the images it's actually very useful and has a 180 deg field of view. That said it is not as good as the tokina for most things.
    Kind regards

    I bought a Rodenstock ultra-slim polarizer for my Sigma 10-20 and vignetting is not an issue but it cost me over 110.

    I also had the same problem with the Cokin filter holder but i "chopped" the last slot but i still had that problem within 10-11 mm.
    However, since i have my 105mm Lee filter system i can shoot my sigma from 10mm straight.

    The Tokina 11-16 is simply superb in every aspect bar one ! The Tokina only has one weaknes ( as do most Tokinas )
    Very very high CAs. 2.1 - 2.6 px at the image borders. Since this is a rather easy fix in PS, I would pick this lens without hesitation.

    Ok. Good advice. Just bought one (Tokina 11-16)

    I read through this whole thread and finally decided this is the lens and today was the day. Now, credit card has been charged, expedited shipping arranged - how do I hurry it's arrival even more?! I am SO impatient!

    You'd best post up a shot of a building with both this and an 18mm so that my pocketbook can hate me even more
    D7000: 50mm 1.4, 16-85mm VRii

    Can we just refer every new topic pertaining to the 35mm 1.8G to a sticky, please?
