Distinguished by its bright design, the Nikon F-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 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.
Excellent Lens for the Price and performance
I am very happy with the result of Tokina Lens, I got for a wonderful price and quality of Item well made in Japan. Using to shot landscaping infrared and the result are beyond expectation. I will rated 10+. See attached Photo
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. :(
For my money this is just as good as the Nikon equivalent for half the price. I have used it on a couple of architectural jobs and the color and sharpness are fantastic. There is some barrel distortion but my old Nikon wide zoom also had barrel distortion. I am very happy with this purchase!
Seems well made
Beautiful glass and great images. This is heavy but I actually like that
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.
