Tokina 12-28mm f/4.0 overview

  • 1Description

The 12-28mm f/4.0 AT-X Pro APS-C Lens for Canon from Tokina is a wide-angle to standard length zoom lens with a maximum aperture of f/4.0. It is compatible with Canon APS-C cameras and provides a 35mm focal length equivalency of 19-45mm. This compact lens features a one-touch AF/MF clutch operation to switch back and forth between auto and manual focus, for manual focus slide the focus ring back and for autofocus allow to the ring to rest in the forward position. A newly designed GMR (magnetic precision) AF sensor is mounted close to the AF motor and provides fast, accurate AF. The lens' SD-M (Silent Drive-Module) means that autofocus responds smoothly and silently, which is ideal when shooting HD video.

The use of SD glass (ultra-low dispersion glass), which emulate fluorite glass in performance, aims to eliminate chromatic aberration and aspherical lens elements in both the front and rear lens groups correct distortion and also helps to minimize aberrations for sharp imaging throughout the zoom range.

    Tokina 12-28mm f/4.0 reviews

    12-28mm f/4.0 AT-X Pro APS-C Lens for Canon is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 49.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I honestly don't know why there aren't more glowing reviews for this lens, my only regret is that it can't be used on a full frame body. I know Tokina makes faster (2.8) ultra wide zooms but they don't have the focal range, either they start at 16 or only go to 22 believe me this 12-28 even on a crop sensor is plenty versatile and plenty sharp, built well and F4 is just fine thank you. I'll take 12-28 F4 over 10-22 or 16-28 2.8's any day of the week and the money saved will go towards the Sigma 20mm 1.4 ART for my full frame. And I'm not saying this because I'm cheap (got 3 L lenses and a couple nice primes) this Tokina is right up there, the most impressive thing is how well it handles shooting right at the sun. Great color, contrast and sharp! Fast focus also and decent bokeh see sample.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lens I've used both the Tokina 11-16 and this Tokina 12-28. I have to say that losing the stop of light and 1mm of range doesn't hurt. The ability to go from an ultra-wide 12mm to a near-regular 23mm (acts like a 35mm on a crop lens) is perfect for automotive photography, shooting in a smaller room, and even astrophotography. The build feels incredibly sturdy and solid, with the AF/MF ring providing a comforting snap back and forth. Sharpness from side to side and very minimal vignetting and distorion make this a 5/5 for me.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic Lens! I'm not a pro, I'll start with that to temper the remarks appropriately. I am loving this lens, I haven't even used my 50mm at all since buying it, it's been that fun. I mostly shoot outdoors, landscapes, taking it on hikes etc. I had originally purchased the 11-16mm but the range was too restrictive, so I opted for this to get a little more usefulness out of it. I am very impressed with the pictures that I've taken with it (and others love them as well which is a good sign!).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sharp and Versitile First let me say I am not in love with shooting wide angle lenses, I prefer a 50mm +, with the 135mm being my favorite focal length. With that said, wide lenses are necessary sometimes and can even be fun to shoot in the right setting. I'm a sucker for sunsets and this lens is the only one I'd bring with me when shooting a sunset, it's sharp and plenty wide at 12mm and zoomed into 28mm you begin to lose that wide look. Speaking of which, the edges of the frame are obviously stretched a tad since it's a wide angle lens, but less than I'd expected when I purchased. I have shot this lens inside at a wedding and outside on a sunny day and it's sharp across the board. I was impressed with the sharpness at f/4 and compared to a (Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8) shooting at F/4, the 12-28mm seemed brighter in fact, but equally as sharp. I am happy with the construction, it feels sturdy in hand but not too heavy that you can't carry the thing around. Auto focus is a little slow but at this price range, who can complain about that? Not to mention the AF is accurate and that's what I really need in a lens. Framed out (12mm) at F/8 with the focus just shy of all the way to infinity, I find nearly the entire frame is crisp and in focus which is great for landscapes and real estate, which, if these are your purposes, I would definitely recommend this lens. If you're relying on the AF to get quick, upclose shots, say, at a wedding for example, you may need to search for a faster motor.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Would not work with Canon 70D Went through 2 copies of this lens. Both had problems with my Canon 70D. Camera would take a few shots then lock up. Thankfully B&H was great with the return and overall customer service. Wish the lens worked, seemed nice and has a great focal range.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Convenient I have been a prime lens user for many years. I was hoping to create a travel set up for landscape photography and this lens fit the bill. It seems like a reliable tool and although it is still new to me, I am still learning its strong points. So far I know that the performance seems to lack at the long end. It seems a bit soft. Not a big deal for me personally since I don't use this focal length much anyway. A shout out to B&h who really helped me out with a bad shipping situation. They showed great integrity and were very helpful.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great wide angle lens I bought this to replace my Tokina 12-24 which for some reason broke when I tripped and fell with it. ;-) I've been very happy with this lens so far! Seems very well built, the auto focus is good, and I haven't had a big problem with chromatic aberration that some people have mentioned.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bang for the buck! This is the first glass I bought to use with my Canon T2i. I purchased my camera about a year ago with the kit lens (18-55 and 55-250). I wanted to get a wide angle and try out shooting landscapes with it (which I haven't done yet). Anyway, this glass seems durable and well-constructed. It's a bit heavier than what I expected but that's because of it's many elements...which is a good thing. I've used this glass in a recent friend's wedding and reception afterwards. Lighting was really poor during that occasion and weddings are probably one of the hardest occasion to shoot. Afterwards, I posted the pictures on my Facebook page and tagged some of the people I know. Lo and behold, all of them liked the pics. I've never had so many compliments on the pictures I've taken before prior to this incident. In fact, the groom asked me for a copy of the pictures I took during his wedding and said that they were beautiful and wonderful. The only thing that I don't like so much about the glass is that it feels like scratching when I'm mounting it onto my Canon camera body. Maybe I just need to get used to it. Other than that, this lens is exceptional!
