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 F2.8 Pro FX Lens for Nikon from Tokina fills the bill very nicely. Designed specifically for Nikon pro level DSLRs with a full frame (FX) sensor (such as the Nikon D700 and D3x), 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) Nikon 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 two more aspherical elements in the rear group. Three 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 Nikon, everything is accomplished by the focus ring.

    Tokina 16-28mm f/2.8 reviews

    AT-X 16-28mm f/2.8 Pro FX Lens for Nikon is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 165.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great and affordable FX wide angle lens Got a chance to use this lens for the day... WOW! It's basically a smaller version of the nikon 14-24 f2.8. Unbelievably sharp and responsive. Focuses quick and quiet. At first we weren't even sure it was focusing it was all happening so fast and with hardly any motor noise. Distortion at the edges is very well controlled. A very nice alternative to nikons offerings. My only two complaints are an undersized lens cap and the inability to use a filter. Other than that this piece of glass is a winner. Solid build, great sharpness, color and contrast. Tokina has done well. Nikon has their hands full with this lens...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic performer at a great value!! I use this lens primarily for weddings, indoor ceremonies and receptions. This is a FANTASTIC lens and performs well. The images come out crisp and sharp with excellent color rendition. The fact that I paid $/USD makes this lens an amazing choice for those looking for a wide angle zoom. This is the only lens in my kit that is not a Nikkor. Some potential issues. Yes there is flare. And yes the front element is a concern. Especially in tight quarters with people all around. I am worried about damaging the front element. Apart from those two issues/concerns, this lens delivers.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeded Expectations I tested the lens out of box at 16mm, 22mm and 28mm shooting at f/2.8, f/8 and f/22 in each focal length. Target sharpness was superb throughout except at f/22 where there was a slight softening noticeable under high loupe magnification that became more pronounced at the shorter focal lengths. I then moved outdoors to do some field tests on architectural subjects. I took several shots at 16mm ranging from f/5.6 to f/11 and was amazed at the results. I would judge this lens to be slightly better than my Nikkor AF-S 16-35 f/4.It would be nice to have the option of screwing on a polarizer when needed, but otherwise, a fantastic lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Built like a tank Built like a Tank Tokina is my only 3rd party lenses I have. I've used their Tokina AF 10-17mm f/3.5-4.5 AT-X 107 DX lens for quite a while for Fuji S5, Nikon D300, Nikon D2Xs, D7100, Even I can use this lens in my FX D3s. I am complete confidence and no hesitation in ordering Tokina brand lenses. I am planning use this lens primarily for indoor/low light with Nikon D3s @ ISO12800. 1. Built like a tank 2. The color is very accuracy compare to Tokina AF 10-17mm f/3.5-4.5 AT-X 107 DX Lens. 3. Cannot see any distortion from this lens. Only a complaint for this lens is cannot attach filter.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Winner! As a wildlife photographer looking to do more landscape work I was lusting after the Nikon 14-24 when I discovered this Tokina. The reviews sounded good, DxO review was impressive so I ordered one. That first unit didn't enthuse me at all. Not sharp at any setting, so back it went (thanks B&H for the great service) for another try. #2 was what I was expecting, a very sharp lens. Flare is an issue, not a deal breaker, just be aware. It is a little ungainly with all that glass up front but not unreasonably so. If the weight, size or lack of filter threads is a problem, don't get it. I'd buy it again. 5 star lens, 4 stars for Tokina QC.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lens at 1/2 price of Nikon lens!!! I owned an Nikkor 14-24mm F/2.8G, is one of the best UWA lens that i've used so far. Since my wife also into Photography and we always fight for the UWA lens, so i decided to get another UWA lens. Due to budget constraint, i decided to go for Tokina 16-28mm F/2.8 which i read all the reviews about it and at last when i got it, it did exactly what i'm expected!!! Perhaps it exceeded my expectation too for its price tag. IQ is amazing and built quality is not a question, is very durable! GREAT FX LENS FROM TOKINA!! Highly recommending this for budget user like me if you can afford the Nikkor 14-24mm F/2.8G yet. IQ is very closed (<=90%)- again comparing IQ vs Price ratio.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible Lens I've had this lens for several years now and until recently have not been using it as much. I shoot 20-30 weddings a year and this is an awesome lens to use for really close up dancing shots or shots where you want to capture a VERY wide angle of view.� The best thing about this lens is it's ability to capture focus in very little light. I have the Sigma 24mm 1.4 Art for wide angle shots in low light, but the Tokina is able to capture focus quicker and with more accuracy than any other wide lens I have.� Don't be fooled that because this is a 3rd party lens that it will not perform.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great compliment to my lens lineup I am very happy with this lens. I have long wanted a wide angle lens to add to my lens line-up. I have been long wanting the Nikon but could never quite pull the trigger to spend $2,000 on a lens that I really would not use that often. When I discovered the Tokina at nearly a quarter of the price as the Nikon I knew I had to give it a try. I understand that it is a bit slower than the Nikon but it has not bothered me a bit. Most of my shots have been on a tripod and taking pictures of landscape/cityscape I have plenty of time to frame my shot. This lens works great for me!
