 Post subject: Tokina - Wide Angle lens
PostPosted: Mon Mar 12, 2012 9:23 pm 

Views welcomed please !

I'm doing an amount of pic's where a wide angle would be good.

I have a canon 50D, I have looked at the reviews and thought about the Tokina 11-18mm pro lens>

I went to the local Camera shop and he refussed to even buy one in for me? despite the reviews he says thay are no good?

Any comments and your thoughts are welcome?

Got to say I haven't used mine as often as I should, but think it's a really good lens.
A few examples in the gallery; viewtopic.php?f=38&t=10017&start=15

Try another store. :wink:

I know it's an old thread... But anyways, here's a very good comparison between the tokina 12-24mm, tokina 11-16mm, nikon 10-24mm, tamron 10-24mm and sigma 10-20mm lenses.
I know you're a Canon user, so just skip the Nikon 10-24 ;)

While I do not yet have a large, calibrated monitor for viewing and evaluating, I am happy thus far with images I have shot with Nikon-fit Tokina 17mm 3.5 lenses. (One AF and one MF, now discontinued.) The current Tokina ultra-wide zooms have been well-reviewed at several sites. I elected to purchase the Canon 10-22mm EF-S, for my Canon DSLRs, but seriously considered the Tokina 11-16mm, and as I enjoy this type of lens so much, may well try the Tokina eventually.

While it is not ultra-wide, our Tokina 100mm 2.8 macro lens is very sharp and clear, with less apparent distortion than my Canon 100mm 2.8L Macro! The out-of-focus areas are beautifully rendered. Tokina does make some really good lenses; one must, of course, look for reviews to see which are the good ones.

Canon 5Ds R/7D2/7D/5D/40D/1D2N/M3; Nikon F6/D3s/D700/FM3A/1Dx/Coolpix A. Lens selection undergoing changes; some favorites: Zeiss 2/135 APO Sonnar, Canon 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS and 135L, Nikkor 14-24/2.8G and 24-70/2.8G.
