Tokina 16-28mm f/2.8 overview

  • 1Description

For the professional, a 16-28mm f/2.8 lens is almost a necessity, and this new AT-X 16-28mm f/2.8 Pro FX Lens for Canon from Tokina fills the bill very nicely. Designed specifically for Canon pro level DSLRs with a full frame (FX) sensor (such as the Canon EOS 5D Mark II), this super wide-angle zoom has 15 elements in 13 groups, using aspherical and SD super-low dispersion glass elements to reduce chromatic aberration and give maximum resolution. The silent DC motor allows the lens to focus quickly and quietly and works with a GMR magnetic AF sensor to increase AF speed even more. An exclusive One-Touch Focus Clutch mechanism allows switching quickly between auto focus and manual focus by snapping the focus ring forward for AF and back toward the camera for manual focus. And, it's possible to buy this lens without applying for a mortgage first.

Professional 16-28mm F/2.8 Lens
Designed for professional full frame (FX) Canon DSLRs.
NEW Silent DC Motor With GMR Sensor
The 16-28 f/2.8 uses a newly developed silent DC motor that allows the lens to focus faster and more quietly then previous generations. The DC motor coupled with a new GMR magnetic AF sensor work together to increase AF Speed.
Aspherical and Super-Low Dispersion Glass Elements
A new, 56mm-diameter, large size aspherical glass element is incorporated into the front lens group, while there are 2 more aspherical elements in the rear group. 3 SD super-low dispersion glass elements are also incorporated throughout the optical design to reduce chromatic aberration, give maximum resolution, more even brightness and distortion correction.
One-Touch Focus Clutch
Tokina's exclusive One-Touch Focus Clutch Mechanism 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. There is no second AF/MF switch on the lens for Canon, everything is accomplished with the focus ring.

    Tokina 16-28mm f/2.8 reviews

    AT-X 16-28mm f/2.8 Pro FX Lens for Canon is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 139.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good lens but not perfect I shoot press and documentary photography and really needed a wide angle + 2.8 lens, so, since the canon 16 - 35 was out of my budget I got this lens, its really great to use a 2.8 (specially since I used a canon 17 - 85 f4 - 5.6) autofocus is not the fastest but is fast enough, the problem has come 4 times when I have had the focusing ring stuck which can be solved by turning off the camera but makes you loose shots, the other bad thing is the excesive lens flare on very sunny days. Construction is not so good as my lens already has dust inside, other than that, this lens is a good economic option for a full frame camera in wide angle lenses.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Wide Angle Zoom Lens! This lens produces very sharp images. The bokeh is great, too. f/2.8 aperture through the zoom range is a big plus in low light situations. And, it is built solid! I have already used this lens for event and nature photography. I am pleased with the results, and plan to use it again without reservation. I bought this lens knowing about its weight and incompatibility with lens filters. Thus, I am just a litle more careful using it; I use my lens cap at all times when not shooting. Lastly, I am glad Tokina permanently affixed the tulip lens hood to help protect the element. This is a great lens and I am very pleased with my purchase!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Now I've shot black I'll never go back. Great IQ at 1/3 cost Superb IQ and excellent build quality with a 3 year warranty. Tokina gives more value in this zoom range, but they back it up three times what the big C does. Having had and used several Canon lenses and then comparing them to the Tamron 24-70 VC, 70-20 VC, 150-600 VC and Tokina 16-28 that I own, I am now converted. It looks like I'll never go back to Canon, unless they begin giving a comparable product, warranty, and price; that's doubtful. For all they best results with all these lenses I process with DxO Optics Pro 9 with auto correction of all imperfections for each body and lens combination. Once you've tried black you'll never go back.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just being honest The lens is like a tank. Great build. I used a canon 5d mark iii for this lens. I heard this lens is amazing an great. But honestly it wasnt what i expected. Its not very sharp as i would like. Infact i feel like it has trouble focusing when taking pictures of people. But it does give cool angles and for being 2.8 the background does have some blur. I was going to return this lens but i didnt have my UPC code so make sure u keep that on the outside of the shipping box if u buy one, or anything, incase u are dissatisfied. Im kinda glad i get to keep it, i do like it, its just not up my sharpness standards. Probably fantastic for landscapes though!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Lens for the Price I had the Rokinon 14mm 2.8 for real estate, weddings, etc. and wasn't super impressed - it was manual focus and that made it really hard to use. I needed something for real estate and weddings like I mentioned, but also for dramatic portraits and other things. The images that I created while using this lens were so much better than the ones I'd taken with the Rokinon - especially the outdoor ones. They were nice and sharp and just looked....nice. The biggest thing I noticed with this lens is that the distortion is not as noticeable as I expected. I haven't tried using it for real estate yet, though, so I'll have to leave an update later.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good as Canon 16-35 F2.8 L ?? I think so!!Sharp Optics, Excellent Colors. Finish and Build is Pro Grade. I wish if the built-in Lens hood was metal to better protect the front bulbous glass from any damage if dropped. Appears rugged otherwise. Has weather sealing I believe.Zoom Ring is a little stiff (compare to my L glass) but smooth and not bothersome at all. I am still experimenting with Auto Focus, seem to front focus a bit, noticeable at longer distances. Will get back on this.Lens Cap Looks improved compared to what I have seen and heard previously. But still a Metal Cap would have been fantastic.Review at @ does justice to this lens.Great Lens for the money no regrets. Buy it, if you can find one. Not easily available....

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lens I shoot many weddings and music videos and this was a great lens to ad to my collection . Great to find a Len this wide at half the price of the canon version.It's built Very well, a bit heavy but I don't like that the lens hood is built in and the lens cap is like a small cup and nor'easter to just toss in your pocket like the canon lens caps. Also this lens does not take filters and that was kind of a bummer for me with shooting landscape stuff and a few other things but if you don't bother with filters then your good to go.
    Date published: 2012-06-25
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing lens at a great price Well built, extremely sharp, $ less than the comparable canon lens and rated better for vignetting when wide open and far sharper across the whole frame. If you are seriously looking at pulling the trigger you already know the only downside is the lack of being able to add filters without an expensive kit. I have used bracketing and merging to get around this limitation and haven't found myself too limited. Only thing that can be a bit annoying is the flare when bright lights or the sun is at certain angles. I would buy again in a heartbeat.
