I was looking at getting an ultra wide 2.8 lens for my D7100, currently deciding between the new tokina 11-20 and the older 11-16. The 11-20 looks pretty good, especially with the extended zoom range.
Has any one used or have the 11-20? is it any good? or am i better off getting the previous 11-16?
The 11-16 was on my wish list until the 11-20 came along.
I still hope to get one when I find one in stock. He spoke highly of the Tokina quality.
No one else had any experience with the lens?
If you cannot find any comments from Nikon users, then try looking for Canon comments, as I believe the lens is also available for Canon.
Sigma 70-200/2.8, 105/2.8
Nikon 50/1.4G, 18-200, 80-400G
1 10-30, 30-110
I have had a chance to use the 11-20 and think I am going to like it.
The focus seems quitter than I expected. Reviews of some Tokina's said they were noisy. This seems on par with my Nikon's for focus noise, speed and accuracy.
I have not done much pixel peeping. It is a very sharp lens at first glance.
The gap from 20 mm DX to 24 mm FX (35 mm DX I think) looks a little larger than I expected. Time will tell if I can zoom with my feet or get a fast prime some where in the middle of that gap.
I would like it to use the 77 mm filters but knew up front it would mean some new filters. (82 mm)
My usual carry lenses will be the 11-20, 24-70, and the 70-200 all f2.8. A bit heavy at times but think I can live with that.
