Ultra-wide prime designed for DX-format Nikon F-mount cameras, this lens provides a 16.5-24mm equivalent focal length range.
Bright constant f/2.8 maximum aperture affords consistent brightness throughout the zoom range and offers improved control over depth of field.

Two SD low dispersion elements control color fringing and chromatic aberrations throughout the zoom range for greater clarity and color accuracy.

Tokina atx-i 11-16mm f/2.8 CF Reviews

Exactly What I Needed

By James
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2023-01-04

The worker at B&H recommended this lens for my purposes and it is perfect. In fact the worker explained how this lens was better than a more expensive version (for my camera). That just showed me how the workers at B&H want to actually help you rather then get you to spend as much money as possible.

Great Lens to Pair with Red Komodo

If you're seeking a wide lens beyond the 18-35 Sigma and that can fit your budget without making the image look cheap, this lens is perfect!

Fantastic lens with a gimmick

By Alex
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2022-08-11

This lens has a great focal range and you can get some really creative shots with this. A bit of a pro and a con, the zoom ring is very stiff. Almost too stiff. Rest assured you can shoot a film with it and not worry about accidentally touching the zoom mid-shot, however, if you do need to zoom in during a take, it is actually pretty hard. The force required almost always shakes the camera and I don't really think a motorized system would work well with it. Might just be my model, but worth mentioning. Now the gimmick is actually about the focus ring. Switching between manual focus and autofocus requires you to move the focus ring... forward and back... what? I've been on a shoot where I used this lens run and gun style and the amount of times I've accidentally switched between the two is aggravating. Not a huge issue with cine cameras with no autofocus, but the autofocus is pretty darn loud. Other than the autofocus, the lens looks great! A little blurry in the far corners but if you're using a lens as wide as this, it doesn't really matter. Good build quality and great image quality for both stills and video. If the focus ring switch was just a switch on the side, this lens would be a 5 out of 5. I can deal with the zoom ring being stiff.

I bought this lens for use with my Nikon D5200. I use it for milkyway and nightscape storm shots. It's crisp edge to edge and I am very pleased with it. Definitely a cost effective solution vs the Nikon. I would buy it again! I will add a couple of shots.

Good wide angle lens

GOOD: Like the build quality well put together, light weight for flogging , wide enough with little to no distortion , can get really close to subject. CONS: this lens is notorious in noise making, fight focus much than I can take, hard to pick focus on distance object.

Tokina atx-i 11-16mm f/2.8 CF Lens for Canon EF

By David

I bought it for a job I needed it for and was a little disappointed. The first thing I noticed, it seemed cheaply made. The actual image was slightly shaded on one of my Canon bodies and extremely shaded on another. I couldn't use it for the job I wanted that wide of a lens for, but plan to keep it primarily because of the cost, cheap I'll play with it to see if it has any good qualities.

Have the Original DXII Version

By Dan

I have the previous version of this lens and its excellent. It's just wide enough to avoid distorted objects but capture all subjects in small surroundings. This is my go to lens for shooting in confined locations both indoors and outdoors. It will capture all your subjects while showing the entire scene. Great for video too!

Asked by: Tom
The new Tokina atx-i 11-16mm F2.8 CF incorporates a complex optical design, with 13 elements in 11 groups. Using 2 aspherical lenses including a large aspherical P-MO element and 2 all-glass molded Low-Dispersion (SD) elements, the lens effectively suppresses chromatic and spherical aberrations. The front element provides super-low distortion and low light fall-off for straight lines and minimal exposure vignetting.
