Tokina atx-i 11-20mm f/2.8 CF Overview

An updated classic, designed for more intuitive and interactive use, the Canon EF-mount Tokina atx-i 11-20mm f/2.8 CF is an ultra-wide zoom that is ideal for landscape, architecture, interior, and astrophotography applications. Its bright f/2.8 constant maximum aperture affords consistent brightness throughout the zoom range and benefits working in available lighting conditions. The optical design incorporates a series of aspherical and low dispersion elements, which suppress a variety of aberrations for improved sharpness and clarity. Individual elements are also multi-coated to resist flare and ghosting for greater contrast and color accuracy when working in bright or backlit conditions. Complementing the optics, this lens features a One-Touch Focus Clutch Mechanism for fast changing between AF and MF settings, and an internal focusing design is used for responsive focusing performance.

Ultra-wide zoom is designed for APS-C-format Canon EF-mount cameras and provides a 17.6-32mm 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.
Three aspherical elements, including two glass-molded elements and one P-MO hybrid element, help control spherical aberrations and distortions for sharper, more accurate rendering.
Three SD (super-low dispersion) elements control color fringing and chromatic aberrations throughout the zoom range for greater clarity and color accuracy.
Anti-reflective multi-layer coated elements suppress flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color accuracy when working in strong lighting conditions.
Silent-Drive focusing Motor (SD-M) pairs with a GMR sensor and an internal focusing design to achieve fast, responsive, and precise performance.
One-Touch Focus Clutch Mechanism avails quick switching between autofocus and manual focus settings by either pushing or pulling the focus ring. When set to manual, focus response is especially smooth and benefitted by hard stops at the ends of the focusing range.
Water-repellent top coating makes wiping and cleaning the surface of the front glass element easier.
Nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a smooth bokeh quality.
Included lens hood blocks stray light from causing flare and also offers some physical protection the the lens.

Tokina atx-i 11-20mm f/2.8 CF Reviews

What a beautiful lens

By ludovic

This lens really impressed me, it got these nice bokeh and like a soft smooth blur that creates a really nice background separation. I use it both on a Fullframe camera and also my p6k which is s35. As from 16mm this lens is fullframe and that 20mm f2.8 look is so gorgeous. This lens uses a 78-80mm focus ring for those what will be looking everywhere and did not find any. Only drawback is the really really short focus ring..Tokina could have release an update but they went with the cine version that have a huge focus throw ;)

Great lens and great value

Great for real estate

I bought this lens to replace the cheaper Nikon 10-20mm DX lens that I've been using for a few years. The Tokina is built much tougher and feels much more substantial in your hands. The photos are also markedly sharper with no noticeable chromatic aberration and the distortion at the wide end is not too pronounced. The Nikon I've been using suffered from terrible chromatic aberration as well as fun-house like distortion at the wide end - but that all went away when I switched to the Tokina 11-20. The one thing I do not like about this lens is the auto to manual ring. I agree with many of the other reviewers when they say that should be a switch not a push-pull ring. Also I wish the focus ring had a greater throw - because I use manual focusing most of the time and that would be easier with a greater range on the focus ring. I do mainly real estate photography and I am very pleased with my switch to this Tokina 11-20 lens.

Solid build and good quality lens. I use it solely on my Canon C100

I really wanted to get more into the wide angle range and the price was right on this lens. Then it showed up and I fell in love. It is a solid lens of good size and for the price I don't think it can be beat.

Excellent lens, good price

3 this lens! I was looking for a wide angle and was eyeing the Canon 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM but then a pro photographer I know recommended this lens instead. Glad I went for this lens. Very sharp, fast, nice color saturation. Couldn't have asked for more.

The pictures looked great.

I used this lens to take pictures of the northern lights so I needed a low aperture lens. The pictures looked great and I couldn't see any kind of distortions. The build quality seemed very good, so for the price I found it a very good value.

Incredible value for its price

This is my first time buying a wide-angle lens. I've been doing photography for over 6 years now, but had never found a need for a wide lens. So, I found this Tokina 11-20 to be reasonably priced. I was shocked at how nicely built it is. The build quality is great. The image quality is pristine as well. I am very pleased and looking forward to exploring more with this lens.

Just to be sure, the Canon version is an EF not EF-S mount, correct? I'm confused, because the description states it's optimized for APSC sensors.
Asked by: Louis
This lens is an EF mount, but it is formatted for an APS-C sensor. That being said, it does not have the additional flange like a Canon brand EF-S lens offers.

If I use this with a Vello/Metabones type speed booster on a Sony a6600 will I get vignetting?
Asked by: Bryce
The lens has an EF mount, not EF-S. The lens is designed for a super 35/APS-C sensor. There is no vignetting on the Sony A6600. A speed booster will not be useful and it may actually cause vignetting. I use the Tokina with the Sigma MC-11 with no problems, however, there is one thing to keep in mind: There is no autofocus when connecting the lens with the Sigma MC-11. You'll need to manually focus the lens.
