Pros:Sharpness.. brightness and price
Cons:Dial focus from manual to automatic ... flaire backlight
Opinion:I have this lens for some time and I can express my concrete opinion .... I think it's a fantastic lens for sharpness and price.... I use it coupled with my beloved Nikon d7200 .... I do not think there is better at this price even if it has its limits backlight with the classic flaire but with shrewdness you manage to avoid .... Textbook to automatic sled focus that is annoying and fits most of the time and also to add the size of the filters from 82 mm that nn are very cheap ...... otherwise a big lens over-recommended
Cons:MAF Pass ring, 11mm distortion, flare, maybe it lacks a mm of wide angle compared to the competition
Opinion:Starting with the cons, the classic Tokina flare is also present on this optic, but having also had the 11-16 II, I can affirm that things have improved, both in terms of resistance and aesthetic, or when it is present is not so unpleasant. It distorts a bit to 11mm, nothing that can not be corrected in PP but it is a thing to take into account during the shooting. The ring nut to switch from AF to MF is uncomfortable and not really fluid. The positive sides of this lens outclass the negatives abundantly... The brightness of the lenses and the sharpness, acceptable even at the edges, make it the best wide angle for DX. Before him I had the 11-16 2.8 and then the Nikon 10-24 3.5-5.6, and I tried the Sigma 10-20 3.5 of a friend. The only one that I regret is the Nikon but only for the extreme versatility, however the Tokina 11-20 tears it with low hands in brightness and sharpness, especially at the edges. The 11-20 focal range covers a wide spectrum of wide angle/superwide angles so much that I've kept it mounted for a long time in several trips and mountain hikes. For APS-C I don't think there's any better...
Pros:Sharpness, robust, general quality, F 2.8 constant
Cons:Distortion A11 manual af nut.
Opinion:Excellent lens coming from a Canon 10 18 STM no comparison. Sharp, even in the corners and fantastic barrel structure a tank. Only thing distorts to 11 is the Dial for AF manual not really comfortable. Lens that I recommend absolutely even six I personally do not like the wide angle for the type of photos I do however when you use it do appreciate landscapes, in the city, even with the indoor flash Christmas tavolate etc. being a fixed 2.8 on the whole focal.
Pros:F 2.8 constant, sharpness even at TA, general quality, lightness and size, compatible thread filters
Cons:Spin annoying, and if you can define against, the switch from af to mf inconvenient
Opinion:I use this lens since last October, I got new on the internet at € 400 (offertona !!) I must say that amazed me, the quality of the images it offers are spectacular. I took him to Rome with me thinking of keeping it as a second lens for the museums, mounted just arrived I did not change it anymore. The possibility of reaching 20mm allows to exploit it in many fields, from inside to outside. It's a lot of flare, but it can be easily solved by slightly changing inclination. Excellent also the hood that does its job anyway. rnSecond me is the switch to the fire, because it does not allow microcorrections, but you can easily avoid using the SLR settings. Strangled, then combined with a semi-type my 7200 from the best of itself, pity only not be able to take advantage of full frame!
Pros:F 2.8 constant, fully usable at TA, sharpness, build quality, filter thread.
Cons:Flare, mode of transition from AF to MF, only for APS
Opinion:I've had it for a month and I use it for street and interior. I gave away the Canon 10-18 STM to take this Tokina. The yield is much higher, the sharpness is excellent from the maximum aperture. It is heavy but the build quality is very high, the ferrules run well and with the right friction. Effective and fast autofocus (on Canon 200D) both from viewfinder and Live View. The distortion is also contained at 11mm, if kept on the bubble is minimal and only for the closest subjects of the framing edge. The flare instead is always lurking. In practice it has no obvious defects in relation to the price. Although I personally do not mind the AF / MF switching mechanism is inconvenient, needless to hide it, but since all in all just get used to it and since it is not that you switch continuously from AF to MF there may be. Basically a wide-angle zoom that for an amateur photographer can be the ultimate optics. The lack of stabilization is not a defect either because it isknows before buying it either because the focal range is such that you can safely do without it. Too bad it's not even for FF but it would have cost much more. Basically promoted with a nice 9 out of 10 and highly recommended.
