Distinguished by its bright design, the Canon EF-mount Tokina opera 16-28mm f/2.8 FF is a flexible wide-angle zoom well-suited to landscape, architectural, and astrophotography applications. The f/2.8 constant maximum aperture pairs with the broad field of view range to realize an ideal lens for working in available light conditions and for using shallow depth of field techniques. The optical design incorporates aspherical and low dispersion glass elements, which help to control distortion and color fringing throughout the zoom range in order to produce sharp, clear, and color-accurate imagery. A multi-coating has also been applied to individual elements in order to suppress flare and ghosting for improved contrast when working in bright and backlit conditions. Complementing the optical design is a sophisticated focusing system, which uses a DC motor, Silent Drive module, GMR magnetic sensor, and an internal focusing design in order to provide especially quiet and quick focusing performance to suit stills and video needs. A One-Touch Focus Clutch Mechanism also allows for fast switching between autofocus and manual focus settings. Additionally, this 16-28mm f/2.8 sports a nine-blade diaphragm to produce a pleasing bokeh quality and it has a built-in lens hood to shield the bulbous front element from stray light.

Tokina opera 16-28mm f/2.8 Reviews
Great lens for the price!
I wanted a wide angle lens mostly for a small architectural project I'd like to pursue (that was all the excuse I needed to buy!). This is on a D810. The physical lens quality seems to be solid. I'm used to fully sealed lenses so I will need to retrain myself when shooting in a wet environment. No problems so far, though. The focus is definitely slower than what I'm used to but I'm not sure the use case for a fast focus wide angle zoom lens is a wide one. Perfect for tripod-mounted wide angle shots of buildings, landscapes, etc. Shooting people handheld just requires a bit more verbal direction and consideration for the slower focus. I'd not worked with a lens whose focus is switched between manual and auto by pulling or pushing the lens barrel. That confused me for about 30 seconds when I knocked it into manual on accident. Just an fyi! The fact that this lens is nearly 1/3 the cost of the equivalent Nikon model made this a no brainer for me. For my limited use case and special project, it would have been silly to go the Nikon route. While I've not played a ton with it yet, I am noticing that it's not as sharp as some of my Nikon lenses. But, the photos it produces for me are still amazing! Overall, I'm thrilled with the purchase and would do it again! Seriously great value for the price.
Very happy with my Tokina Opera 16-28mm lens. My images have been sharp and clear and it's just what I needed to improve my images for Real Estate.
I am very happy with this product and the price is right, very excellent lens made in Japan. I used for my Nikon D5000 for infrared pictures and for my Nikon 610 This lens is beyond oustanding and the result is amazing.
Excellent Lens for the Price and performance

This may be the worst lens I've ever bought.
This is the softest I have ever seen at f2.8. I bought this after seeing great reviews from a few that use a d750. I shoot mainly real estate and need a decently sharp lens. even stopped down to 7.1,8,9 its just not tack sharp. I attempted to calibrate using FOCAL pro and it wouldn't even attempt it. End result was always too far out of AF adj. range. I sent it back to be replaced and had the same exact issues with it again. I of course thought it may be my body, and grabbed another d750 brand new out of the box and same issues. Soft Soft Soft and not able to calibrate. Im very displeased. I hope it works better for someone else. The shot I included in this review was on the New D750 24mm ISO 100 1/160. Focus point was on the tip of the top centered leaf. No bueno!
Will NOT auto focus with Sony FX-6
Tried to save some money . . . I already had a Sigma 50-100 Art Lens (Canon FD mount) I purchased the Tokina 16-28 and the Sigma MC-11 Mount Converter. Will NOT auto focus on the Sony FX-6. Camera says Cannot perform (autofocus) because of the condition of the lens. So either the lens is malfunctioning or it's not compatible. I think it's the latter. BUT, since I purchased the lens, then had to wait for months for the FX-6, I can no longer return the lens. :(
Little on the heavy sight
I use it mainly for night sky photography. It's very sharp. Image attached.
Great lens for real estate photography
This lens has been paired to a Z6 camera with an FTZ adapter. My intended use is for commercial real estate pictures presentations. According to my testing on approximately 200 pictures taken - I am now satisfied that it is the right tool for the job. The picture distortion although present is not excessive, it allows one to take pictures in dark places due to its low light capabilities which turns out of good quality after post-processing.
