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.
