  1. Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 DX II Wide-Angle Zoom Lens


    Ours go to 11.  Millimeters, that is.  This Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 zoom lens will fit EF and EF-S mounts, although it vignettes on full frame cameras at wider than 16mm. This is a great lens to capture action and events up close.  It has modest barrel distortion but it’s definitely not a fisheye.  Autofocus performance is excellent, and you can pull the focus ring for manual focus with a hard infinity stop, great for video shooters.

    We love this lens paired with a jib or slider dolly for sweeping wide shots.  A great option for landscape shooters, its sweet spot seems to be around f/11. For shooters who would rather have a manual lens, the Rokinon 14mm should be considered.

    If you are shooting on a smaller sensor like the BMCC, BMPCC, or MFT cameras, this lens is a must-have for its focal length, speed, and great optics. Don’t forget you may need an EF lens adapter.

    The Tokina has 77mm front threads. This lens pairs really well with the Sigma 24-60mm f/2.8, with the same maximum aperture, filter size, and weight.

    If you’re considering this lens for fullframe, you might also want to consider the Sigma 20mm f/1.8.  It’s a bit sharper, 1 1/3 stops faster, with less distortion, and just a touch less wide.

  2. Tokina 16-28mm f/2.8 Zoom Lens


    The Tokina 16-28mm f/2.8  zoom lens for Canon is a full frame wide zoom. That means it works on any Canon EF or EF-S mount camera. Most shooters with crop cameras will probably prefer Tokina’s more portable 11-16mm f/2.8 II lens, though. This lens is very popular with photographers, but docu-style video shooters will appreciate the full-time manual focus option and useful zoom range.

    This lens performs exceptionally well, outperforming most wide zooms from Canon, even wide open. Autofocus is fast and not too loud. Distortion is minimal, making this a great lens for architecture and interiors. The lens hood is built in, and does not accept filters. It close focuses to about ten inches, giving you some creative options for extreme perspective.
