Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 overview

  • 1Description

The AT-X 116 PRO DX-II 11-16mm f/2.8 Lens for Nikon F by Tokina is an ultra-wide angle autofocus zoom lens with a fast constant f/2.8 maximum aperture. The AT-X 116 PRO DX-II lens is designed for digital cameras with APS-C-size CMOS or CCD sensors. Its angle of view ranges from 104-84° and it can focus as close as 11.8". Nine diaphragm blades help to produce soft out-of-focus backgrounds while two Super-Low Dispersion glass elements and two aspheric elements help to achieve excellent contrast, sharpness and minimal chromatic aberration. As an update to their AT-X 116 PRO DX, Tokina has improved the multi-layer coatings to minimize light reflection and improve optical performance. This updated PRO DX-II also has an internal silent focusing motor that allows the lens to utilize autofocus on Nikon cameras that do not have an AF drive gear and motor.

Tokina's One-Touch Focus Clutch Mechanism allows the photographer to switch between autofocus and manual focus with a simple push of the focus ring. Snapping it forward into autofocus and back into manual focus is all that needs be done, there's no need to adjust the AF/MF switch on the camera body.

A constant f/2.8 maximum aperture benefits working in low-light situations and also aids in creating a shallow depth of field.
An internal silent focusing motor allows the lens to use autofocus on Nikon bodies that do not have an AF drive gear and motor.
Two Super-Low Dispersion glass elements and two aspheric elements, as well as improved multi-coating, achieve excellent sharpness and contrast and reduce aberrations.
The One-Touch Focus Clutch Mechanism offers a simple switch from manual focus to autofocus and back again. The focus ring snaps forward for AF and back for MF. It's operable with one hand and eliminates the need to switch from AF to MF on the camera body.

    Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 reviews

    AT-X 116 PRO DX-II 11-16mm f/2.8 Lens for Nikon F is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 288.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid, Feels Good I'm happy with the performance of this lens. The images are sharp, the auto focus works well, and f2.8 is great indoors. I use it most outdoors for nature photos, like wild flowers and spiders (to get the whole web). The push/pull ring is solid. I'm not too worried about it getting a bit dirty or wet. The lens shade is big and will cast a shadow with the pop-up flash, the lens alone will cast a small shadow at the bottom of the photo. I use a Nikon D7100. I tried a friend's Nikon 10-20mm, it is a good lens. For a little more money (the Tokina was on sale), the Tokina lens is much better. What would get five stars? I would like a closer focus distance.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lens. Completely new POV!! I bought this product in anticipation of an upcoming trip to Jerusalem where I thought that the ancient buildings and streets would require a UWA lens for my D7100. I purchased at B&H knowing that I could easily return it if I was not satisfied with the lens performance. As soon as I purchased it, I walked the streets of NYC and began photographing. I was really surprised at the quality of the pictures. Distortion is very well controlled. I can get images that are very different even from my 16-85. At 11mm I can get very close to a subject and still capture all of the background. The constant 2.8 aperture will be useful in tight alleys and inside museums. I am very happy with this purchase.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Get close and GO WIDE I purchased the first version of this lens from B&H in January. While it was still under the return period the version ii was announced.I returned the original and waited patiently for the ii.It took a while but when it was finally announced I think that I was probably one of the first to place an order.I did order it early in the morning on the announced sale day.There was absolutely nothing that I could find wrong with the original but the addition of a motor will come in handy for my back-up D40.I usually take my pictures at night and this lens performs beyond my expectations I'll attach a couple of pics that I have taken with this lens. Bear in mind that I am an amature photographer so the image quality would probably be better in more capable hands

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for star photography I bought this lens primarily to shoot meteors, Milky Way and the like. Haven't had a chance at a metoer shower yet, but I've gotten good results on Milky Way photos (on a Nikon D7100 12mm @ 2.8, 20 sec and ISO 1000).Feels solid, sharp. Not very quick autofocus, but not that important in an ultra wideangle lens.I wish it focused closer. I shoot wildflowers and small animals (frogs, spiders, etc). I like to take closeups that include habitat in the background, and for small flowers or insects this lens doesn't focus as close as I'd like.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from First time using a non-Nikkor lens I purchased my first Nikon camera in 1968. Since then, I have been a very loyal Nikon devotee, buying tons of cameras and lens. However, the quality of the Nikon lens continues to decline, and when I sent my last lens back to their factory for repair (within 1 year), they returned it saying too bad. The Nikon customer service is horrible. So I decided to try a Tokina. Much to my surprise, this lens is very bit as sharp as the Nikkor lens that I own, and it has a wider range with a faster speed. I admit it is new, so I have no experience with its durability. As of now, I am very pleased with the Tokina, and I cannot say the same about my old camera company.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great lens! Bought this lens primarily for landscape photography after much research. It was between this and Nikon's 10-24mm. I went with Tokina because of the fixed aperture. I wasn't fully sure of what type of landscapes I would ultimately be shooting, but wanted the fixed, wide aperture for low light situations. Haven't tried it out in the field too much, but my test shots have been sharp and the color is bright. I am very happy with my purchase and looking forward to using it going forward. Haven't had any problems with the lens cap or filters being screwed onto the end of the lens. Cap goes on and off easily and my uv filter went on with no problem.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from A good lens, but hindered by it's shortcomings. This lens is a good starting point if you're looking for a decent landscape/astroscape lens.� I used it for 6 months on a D7200 with some complaints.� If you're on a budget, it's a good ultra wide. The Tokina is very sharp and has good coma correction (not great).� Flare reduction is its true weakness, expect bright street lamps at night to create lots of ghosting.� Limited focal range is another weakness.� Auto-focus performance is actually pretty good - the motor is quite loud and isn't the fastest, but its consistent and responds correctly to AF-C.� It doesn't seem to have much trouble finding correct focus.� My copy needed some focus fine tuning, but not much.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Surprisingly versatile! As the owner of a crop-body camera (Nikon D5500) I bought this lens to try to get wider shots. It worked well for that. Later when I upgraded to a full frame D600, I was pleased to find that I could CONTINUE to use this lens in FX mode if I kept the lens set at 16mm. Sample shot with the D600 uploaded. Great astrophotography lens. Why not 5 stars? I wish it had less flare in bright light. Not an uncommon issue for the super-wides but still a hassle. Manage your light and positioning and you should be fine. Just a great value.
