Customer Reviews

Have only had it for a few weeks but love love love it! Seems to be a great lens thus far. Appears to have far less distortion and CA than its predecessor, Tokina 12-24 f/4 DX I (I have never used the more recent DX II version of the 12-24 so I can't compare it to that one). Some concerns have been noted about softness at 28mm end but pics seem quite useable to me, especially with proper lighting, shutter speed etc. Some vignetting present with circular polarizer (Tiffen) at 12mm. Zoom ring feels a bit stiff. That's about all I can find to criticize this far...seems to be a keeper! 5Nice wide-angle DX lens that also works on FX across most of its range This is a good lens. I purchased one (elsewhere) that had an image quality defect that was extremely evident upon testing (it had poor clarity when shooting wider than f/6), especially if you tried to shoot anything up close. This isn't really a core use case of the lens, but I happened upon the defect and then it was driving me crazy. I returned that one (eBay seller), and bought a replacement here, which did not suffer from the defect.In spite of the fact that I got a defective one, I am rating this 5/5. When I selected this lens, I also tried out two other wide-angle options. I got the more expensive 12-24mm from Nikon, and I got a Sigma 10-20 that was (I think) f/3.5-f/4.5 variable aperture. The Sigma, in my hands, produced clearly lower quality images. The Nikon was comparable image quality, but I was paying more for it *used* than I was paying for the Tokina new, and there was one very important difference between the Tokina and the Nikon. The Tokina is built solid as a rock. It feels like it should be double the price. The Nikon felt like a cheap plastic kit lens. And it's not cheap. So that's sort of disappointing.Some other details about the lens. The extra length at the high end (28mm instead of 24mm or 20mm) is nice. Given this is designed for a crop-sensor camera, your 12-28mm is really like 18-42mm, which makes it *almost* like a walkabout lens for a crop-sensor camera, as it gets very close to your nifty-fifty range. Another very nice attribute of this lens is that, although it is officially a "DX" lens, it will not show any considerable vignetting on a full-frame camera as long as you stay > 18mm. At 18mm, it's a little vignetting, but easily correctable. Thus, you've got an 18-28mm f/4 full frame lens, which is not bad either (since a lot of the wide-angle zooms you see for FX are in the 18-35mm sort of range), so this is almost covering that same range.The image quality to me seems fine, though I am really not a heavy-duty wide-angle shooter. I am usually doing macro or portrait shots with my other lenses, and it's a rarer situation that I go for this lens. But I haven't had disappointment with it. It has some lens flare, which I actually find is fun to take advantage of for effect. I am not experienced enough in wide-angle realm to tell you if the lens flare is problematic compared to the competition. 5Excellent, versatile wide-angle for crop sensors The Tokina 12-28 f/4.0 is a great wide-angle DX lens, and really stands out for its combination of versatility paired with excellent image quality. While Tokina makes other lens that are somewhat similar to this one (such as the 11-16 and 11-20 that go to f/2.8 and the older/cheaper 12-24 that is also f/4.0), I think that the wide range of focal lengths help make this one stand out above the others.PROS:/+/ Image quality is really great - the images are sharp and I've had no issue with dull or inaccurate colors. I also have not noticed any significant vignetting./+/ The extra reach provided by going up to 28 mm means that it is able to approach a standard focal length. I found this to be particularly helpful when taking group photos on vacation - I'm able to keep this on my camera as my primary lens for landscape photos, but I can also just set it to 28mm and pop it on my tripod with a remote trigger whenever the group wanted to take a photo in a nice spot./+/ The build quality is solid. I've had the lens be knocked around a bit against rock walls as I was traversing a narrow mountainside path, and there are no signs of any damage whatsoever./+/ The zoom and focus rings have a reasonable balance between smooth, easy turning and resistance to accidental movement./+/ Any distortion present is relatively minimal throughout the focal range and easily corrected in post-processing if you have Lightroom.CONS:/-/ The 77m filter thread size means that any filters that you get will likely be relatively expensive if they're of decent quality./-/ The clutch that lets you switch from autofocus to manual focus is a bit clunky, and I often found it switching without me noticing (particularly from manual to auto). It also makes it really difficult to autofocus and then manually adjust focus - there is no manual override in autofocus, and in the process of switching between the two it is extremely easy to accidentally turn the focus ring as you're pulling the clutch towards you./-/ The lens is relatively slow (going only to f/4.0). For landscape photography, this isn't really an issue at all as you'll generally be shooting at higher f-stops. However, it's not going to be great for astro photography (where allowing in the extra light will really be important). Additionally, you won't be able to get much bokeh at all That's obvious and again isn't really an issue for the main purposes of a wide-angle lens, however if you try to turn it all the way to 28 mm and use it as a "pseudo-standard" lens like I mentioned earlier you'll be limited in what you can do. Again, good enough in a pinch to take pics of friends/family, but if you're used to also having a fast, standard lens (like a 35mm prime) you'll notice the difference enough that you will want to bring both along.Overall, I think this is the ideal lens for enthusiasts with a crop sensor who want a wide-angle lens for landscapes and other (non-astro) uses. I've attached some of the pictures I've taken with it here - all of the photos were taken on my Nikon D5500. For most of them, I had a B+W 77mm XS Pro HTC Kaesemann CPL attached as well, which I would also recommend if you are planning on getting a CPL for this lens as I have no issues with degradation in image quality. All photos have also been post-processed in Lightroom as well. 5A great lens at a good price I used a Tokina 12-28 for about 5 years ago and used it daily for real estate photography, on a D7000 and the past 3 years on a D750.....Very good lens on either a crop sensor or full frame....bent mine after a drop, just bought this one a month ago. Sharp and reliable on a Nikon D750. 5pleasently suprised I have to say that I was a little nervous buying this lens. My only other tokina experience was their 11-16mm and I bought it off the glowing reviews and returned it after using it. Buried deep in some reviews that I didn't notice at the time was the massive field curvature that starts at 14mm and peaks at 16mm. Sure the center was super sharp but move about 2/3 out and it was abysmal. I wanted a wide angle that was consistently sharp from corner to corner across the zoom range (no small feet of course). I have the sigma 10-20 f4-5.6 and while it was consistent it wasn't the sharpest. Sure you can take some really nice shots but where fine detail was important it's weakness began to show. I considered the Samyang 16mm f2.0 as I have the 14mm and wow that is great lens but I didn't feel like investing thousands on multiple filters for the wonderpana system. I have their polarizer and it works well. The new tokina 11-20 peaked my interest but I was concerned with field curvature and the 82mm filter thread lead me to consider this lens. I have to say the lenstips review is fairly spot on. Unless you like the dreamy soft look, f4 is useless. Stop down to f5.6 and a wonderful transformation takes place, very sharp. Stop down to f8-11 and it is tack sharp corner to corner. It is almost as sharp as the samyang 14mm though not quite. The sharpness seems consistent across the zoom range. So if you are shooting with a flash, outdoors or on a tripod this is a great lens. If you need a hand held low light lens look elsewhere. On a side note I did notice some chromatic aberration at f4 and less at 5.6. It was essentially gone by f8. There is almost no vignetting. In fact comparing to the sigma you can see just how bad that lens vignettes. My copy did require -20 micro adjustment to be tack sharp so cameras without that option should thoroughly test the lens to ensure that it works well with your specific camera as is before deciding to keep it. 4Good upgrade from the older 11-16mm Tokina Awesome lens. I've owned the original 11-16mm F/2.8 AT-X Pro DX from Tokina and decided to upgrade to this one for greater range and internal focusing. I definitely don't miss the 11mm, and by giving it up I can go all the way to 28mm where my primes begin (at 30mm) With modern high-ISO sensors, I prefer the range to the faster and older version. For modern DX bodies this is a no-brainer. 5Excellent for the money I needed a good wide angle lens for work to shoot interior spaces and outdoors occasionally. This lens fits the bill. Clean, very crisp and bright images with little chromatic aberration. For my level of photography and what I use it for, it's great. It's also very lightweight for a wide angle lens. I've shot with a Nikkor 14-24mm and it literally feels like it weighs 20 pounds. I have a Nikon D3200, which is a smaller camera body, so this lens is a much better size and weight for that camera. At least for me. 5One of the best in this lens type class Nice overall results. I went with this one after reading reviews and specs on Nikon and other Tokina options (11-16mm). I chose the 12-28mm Tokina because it offers a bit more possibilities and versatility (28mm side) than the 11-16 option. Build quality is close to Nikon, with a sturdy feel, nice, smooth and precise zoom ring and a convenient manual/auto focus option. The lens takes a circular polarizer or any other filter.Image quality is very good, although you will definitely get noticeable vignette get at full aperture. You'll need to correct or stop it down a bit.I'm right at the beginning of the learning curve for this kind of focal length but I can say that this Tokina will surely meet my expectations. 4probably the best buy for DX wide I always buy equipment after a thorough research online about every item. At the time this lens came out, the best option for DX wide seemed to be the 11-16 / 2.8, also from Tokina. Then this lens came out and although it was still fresh on the market and did not have as many reviews as the 11-16, the fact that its focal length went all the way to 28 (a unique zoom range amongst wide angle lenses) made me decide to take my chances and buy it right away. Turns out it was a great investment. Although it's a stop slower than the 11-16, its optical and built qualities are just as good (if not better) as its previous cousin, the 11-16 / 2.8. The lens is built like a tank, and it stands out from all the rest of the third party similar lenses. I have no complains about this lens regarding focusing or sharpness, and it makes my D7000 look good, especially with the provided hood on :D.I recommend this product to any DX user. I can now say my lens lineup is complete, together with my 35/1.8 DX, 50/1.2 Ai-S (FX = 75mm on D7000) and 80-200D-ED (FX - which makes it 120 - 300). I love each of them, but the Tokina is my favourite.Get one for yourself. 5The reviews showed this (and like the Tokina 12-24mm) I bought this lens to do real estate photography (especially interior). The reviews showed this (and like the Tokina 12-24mm), lens to be at least as good if not better than the Nikon lens similar to this and at half the price.So far the photos I have taken have been very sharp, but I find the auto focus to be somewhat slow and when I tried it taking photos of people, it seem to have difficulty focusing on the right object (person) like my Nikon lenses do.I was able to get my SB-600 speed light to cover it at 12mm with built-in wide-flash adapter.It is built like a tank which I love as it feel sturdy and not cheap.Overall I am very happy with the lens and I'm looking forward to taking many photos with this lens.Note: Used with Nikon D90. 4
