Product Highlights
  • For Sony Alpha APS-C Format DSLRs
  • f/2.8 Aperture throughout Zoom Range
  • Ultra Wide-Angle Zoom
  • One-Touch Focus Clutch Mechanism
  • 9-Blade Aperture Diaphragm

The Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 AT-X 116 Pro DX Lens is an ultra wide angle zoom/lens specifically designed with a mount for use with Sony Alpha digital SLR cameras with an APS-C size sensor. The slightly shorter zoom range of this lens over the popular and award winning 12-24mm lens makes it possible to maintain optical quality even at wide-open apertures. This lens features a fast constant aperture of f/2.8, and provides a focal length equivalent to 17-25mm in 35mm format.

As part of the AT-X line, this lens is designed to provide excellent optical quality, and offers advanced features like the WR (Water Resistant) front element (only) a One-touch Focus Clutch Mechanism, that allows the photographer to switch between AF and MF simply by snapping the focus ring forward for AF and back toward the camera to focus manually, and a 9-bladed aperture. This is an excellent lens for short closeup photography.

Note: This lens is NOT waterproof. The 'WR Coating' adds water-resistant protection to the front element only.

Note! The lens is designed for digital cameras with APS-C sized CMOS and CCD sensors, not designed for cameras with Full Frame sensors.

WR Coating
WR (Water Repellent) coating made of a special compound has been applied to the front surface of the lens through the use of a unique evaporation process. As a result, the lens offers excellent water- and oil-repellent performance and makes for easier cleaning should the lens be accidentally smeared with fingerprints or cosmetics.

Note: This lens is NOT waterproof. The 'WR Coating' adds water-resistant protection to the front element only.

One Touch Focus Clutch Mechanism
The One Touch Focus Clutch Mechanism allows for fast and easy switching between manual and auto focus from any position. This improvement means that it is not necessary to change the AF/MF switch (on the body with Nikon or the lens with Canon) every time the lens is changed from auto focus to manual focus mode.
9-Blade Aperture
The rounded diaphragm opening (9 blades) makes out-of-focus elements appear more natural.

    I use this lens primarily for nature landscapes. It's also good for indoors or cityscapes, but I don't use it that way as much.

    This is a very sharp lens for an ultrawide. It's a sharp lens, period, acually. I'd say it's sharper than my old Sony 18-200, about as sharp as my Sony 16-105, and sharper than the Sony 18-250 (which is supposed to be about identical to the Tamrom 18-250, to finally link this to a non-Sony lens). It's not as sharp as my Tamron 17-50, but it's still very good. It's also very well made; it has the heft and handling of a quality lens. I've read some folks complaining about the size of the hood. Well, this is an F2.8 ultrawide. The hood isn't going to be a doll's sleeve. It's the widest hood I own, true, but I can still reverse it and fit the lens in my backpack or Lowepro 102AW, so the size of the hood doesn't bother me at all.

    I really don't use the widest aperature much; I do most of my shooting at F8 with this lens, and it performs very well at that setting. I've used F2.8 a few times indoors or in late twilight.

    I like the fact that the front element doesn't extend past the end of the lens body; I can press the lens right up to a window pane and shoot with no worries.

    The Tokina method of switching from manual focus to auto focus is interesting. You pull the focus ring back for manual focusing, and slide it forward for auto focus. But my Sony A700 focuses very well with this lens, so I almost always use it in auto focus mode.

    Hmm, what's not so good... Well, when buying this lens I was tempted to go with the Tamron 10-24 because of the greater zoom range. Some folks said this lens was pretty much a prime. Having used it for several months now, I disagree; if you think this is a prime, buy a zoom that starts at 16 or 17mm and be done with it. The difference between 11mm and 16mm is useful, and I've used both ends of this lenses range at times. I wouldn't mind if it went to 24mm of course, but I wouldn't trade any of this lenses image quality to get that extra reach. (Ha, ha; I just called 24mm "reach.") I listed the zoom range as the only "con," but really I don't mind much at all, as I just explained.

    I wouldn't recommend any accessories with this lens. Landscapes usually mean polarizing filter, but at these focal lengths if there's any sky in your picture, it will vary markedly from one side to the other if you use a polarizing filter. So to heck with filters; just use your camera well, and do what you need to in post processing.

    The only other ultrawide I've used is the Sigma 10-24mm F4-F5.6. Judging by that experience, my time with this lens, and the reviews of other comparable lenses on the market, I think I was right to buy this lens; in my humble opinion, it's the best ultrawide on the market.

    I used this on a Sony NEX-7 with the LA-EA1 adapter. There was no autofocus (which doesn't matter much on a super-wide) but there was electronic aperture control. The size of this lens pretty much negated the compactness of the NEX body, but I could have lived with that if it performed as hoped.

    Alas, I might have gotten one of the bad ones - if you check reviews for this lens in Nikon & Canon mounts, it seems as though about 1% mirror my experience.

    I tried numerous tests and this lens was consistently much less sharp than my others. So much so that on the landscape trials, it was distractingly soft, even at 17% on my computer monitor.

    It's too bad because I was impressed with the physical construction and was really loving the super-wide angle coverage with relatively low distortion.

    I would have liked to have tried another copy but my departure date intervened. Kudos to B&H for their excellent, hassle-free return policy.

    Comments about Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 AT-X 116 Pro DX Autofocus Lens For Sony Alpha DSLRs:

    I bought this lens for landscape photography and, generally, for wide shots. A friend of mine took this lens abroad and took crazy awesome photos (on a much older Nikon body, to boot).

    I've taken a decent amount of wide shots with it, and they've turned out pretty well. You really have to nail your 'crash points' on a wide lens for the best results (I htink). Close-up shots of people also turn out well with this lens, but you have to be up SUPER close.

    A lot of folks are saying 'low distortion,' but I would say 'controlled distortion.' You'll get warpage on some closer shots, but the further you are from your subject/object, the less you'll get. I've been taking panorama sweeps that I think turn out really well.

        Fantastic lens! I just received it and took a dozen pictures indoors and out. Very happy with the results. It certainly compares very well against the big 3 branded lenses costing $$$ more. Yes it isn't weather proofed but I'm not expecting stormy weather in Saudi Arabia. Worth the money.

        Comments about Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 AT-X 116 Pro DX Autofocus Lens For Sony Alpha DSLRs:

        First of all let me say this is my second copy of this lens. The first one went back to B&H because it had sharpness issues. I'd read about these problems and took a chance on a second copy, which B&H promptly sent (love their return policy!) to me, and is right on the money. I bought this lens primarily for a trip to Europe this summer, and for general landscape and architecture photography. I could tell almost immediately that the second copy was pretty sharp, and I was right. The lens is built like a tank and it feels like a much more expensive piece of glass. I thought about getting the new version, but read this one is sharper. The manual focus is well dampened and is easy to use. The f2.8 throughout the range is also awesome. I would give it five stars if it weren't for the quality control issues on some copies. The lens is versatile, although you shouldn't be using it for portraits or other photography that requires shallow depth of field. While you can get it at f2.8 it won't look like a photo taken with, for example, my 100mm Minolta macro. I love using this lens with my Sony a580, which is in and of itself an iconic camera with great low light and high ISO performance. If you're thinking of buying this lens and are also looking at Canons or Nikons, you'll pay one third the price and get similar or better images with the Tokina.

        This lens produces sharp pictures at both high and low f-stops and is fantastic in low light. My tip to those who wish to use this lens with autofocus is to lock the focus to the center position, other wise the camera tends to focus the lens on the background.

        Comments about Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 AT-X 116 Pro DX Autofocus Lens For Sony Alpha DSLRs:

        This is my first super wide and I'm glad to have it. It opens up a whole new aspect of photography. I guess the price is so low because the II version is out now and its supposed to have slightly better coatings according to Tokina's web site. Sharpness, build, and ergonomics are all superior to the kit quality Sony zoom lenses I use most, the 3.5-5.6/18-70 and 4.5-5.6/75-300. Nothing on the outside moves when zooming and auto focusing.I've pressed it against windows at museums to eliminate glare with no harm since nothing moves. There is flare when the sun hits it directly and chromatic aberration mainly in the corners but compared to what I'm used to it's not that bad. f2.8 makes it more usable indoors without flash. This isn't a "D" lens so flash metering is TTL and it seems to work well with my Minolta 3600HS (D)flash unit. This lens takes a picture of its own shadow when using the built in flash. I'm using this on an A300. The advertised feature that doesn't work is the one touch focus clutch. Clicking the focus ring back toward the camera body is supposed to enable manual focusing without switching to manual focus on the camera body. It doesn't work, you have to flip the body switch in addition to pulling back the focus ring. You can leave the ring in the MF position all the time so you only have to flip the body switch, the only consequence I see is the focus ring then spins when auto focusing. Tokina first told me this was a defect and to exchange it. B&H did a lightning fast exchange and paid all the shipping. The new unit acted the same and then Tokina said the feature doesn't work for the Sony version.

          Had serious focusing errors with Sony alpha 65 set at usual wide focus - 15 zones,> had to shift to spot or zone focus to get it to work under some conditions. Overall very nice

Downside, there can be a ton of lens flare - so be mindful of that issue. I would buy this lens again and I wish I had bought it sooner. B&H rocks. A top notch seller and I trust them implicitly.

            Comments about Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 AT-X 116 Pro DX Autofocus Lens For Sony Alpha DSLRs:

            I avoided ultra-wide lenses on my Sony A350 for years because of their usual problems with distortion and vignetting. I read a lot of reviews and, frankly, wondered if the claims for the Tokina 11-16 f2.8 Pro DX were accurate. When I saw a great price at B&H I decided to try it, and I am glad I did! Distortion is minimal and the only vignettes I've seen were added in post processing. I haven't had to correct a single photo for either problem! I use it mostly in landscape photography and shots of interesting architecture (old buildings and signs). Images are sharp and the color is good. I haven't tried a shot involving bokeh at f2.8, but I'm hopeful.
            Although I had expected to rely on my longer zooms, this lens is on my camera now as often as any of them! Focus is fast and accurate in most situations.
            Although Tokina has released a newer version of this lens (11-16 f2.8 DX II,) I bought the older version. I liked the price and read reviews that indicated it is at least as good as its replacement. It should have a place in my bag for years to come.

              I purchased this lens for my Sony A77 after reading many reviews and came to my decision based on the sharpness and the constant 2.8 aperture. While you can fit more into the frame, I was even more interested in improving the hyperfocal distance over my Sony 16-50mm f/2.8 lens. I like to do landscape and nature shots with some interesting foreground in the shot. Going down to 11mm improves the hyperfocal distance from 15 ft down to about 7 ft at f/2.8. At 5.6, its goes from 7 to less than 4 ft. I know that doesn't sound like much, but I think it really adds that little bit of drama when a rock, leaf or flower is right in your face with a dramatic background and its all in focus. A wide angle lens will really help you do that. Keep in mind the hyperfocal distance is "acceptably sharp" so you usually have to get a little more distance to get really sharp.

              Regarding the large aperture, while it may not be as useful when doing landscape and nature, its great for indoor shots and low light hand held shots and I wanted maximum light and flexibility (especially given the A77 noise at high ISO). Where the large aperture will also help is for night sky shots. For instance, if you want to get a Milky Way shot, you want get maximum light in a short amount of time so that you don't get star trails. The maximum aperture will help you get more light while the wide angle will allow you to keep the shutter open a little longer without getting trails (longer focal lengths show trails in shorter time).

              Surprisingly, this lens is pretty darn sharp wide open and gets even better stopped down a little. I saw a review with comparison shots vs the Sigma 10-20 and this smokes the Sigma in the corners with regard to sharpness.

              Where I came into some issues is with the auto focus. When set to "Wide" (all focus points), the focus was really hit or miss. When set to "Zone" (uses the focus points grouped in the center), it was very consistent. I thought it might be a firmware issue, so I emailed Tokina and after a few email exchanges their response was, "Tokina ultra wide lenses work better in center focus than the all focus points. This is why you are having this problem. The type II will give you the same problems." That makes sense to me if you are shooting a scene with a lot of depth, but it happened even when shooting a wall. Anyway, it looks like I need to use this on the Zone mode or I may be missing my shots.

              Even with this minor drawback, its a solid lens and I look forward to having this in my tool kit.

              Comments about Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 AT-X 116 Pro DX Autofocus Lens For Sony Alpha DSLRs:

              I have been looking for a good priced wide angle lens for a while and tested many out at the local camera stores. I was not please with the result of the lenses I tried. Then I read about the Tokina lens If the local stores would have had this in stock they would have had a sale. Took a chance and ordered it. This is built like a tank compared to my other lenses. I have to say the lens is kinda of ugly but it is a great lens. It capture light real well and its sharp. The lens is great for landscapes, buildings, group shots and areas you do lot of room to take the picture. I found I am using this lens a lot more when we go to museum, amusement parks and any where else that is crowded areas.

                Es un poco pesado.

                    It's nice to have f/2.8 through the range, but the autofocus is noisy when used on Sony FS700. I'll just have to focus manually w/ it.
