Tokina 11-16mm Review f/2.8 AT-X116 Pro DX Digital Zoom Lens
Video DSLR Lens Features for $699.00.
Right off many of you will ask why can’t I just use the Tamron 18-270mm at 18mm for wide angle landscape shots. The Tamron 18-270mm is a great lens for all purpose landscape shots and zoomed close-ups. Notice though how the Tokina 11-16mm on its low end is rated at 11mm compared to 18mm. This allows 40 percent more of the area you are videoing or photographing into the camera. In addition this lens has the best f-stop rating for a zoom lens. At a f/2.8 rating, it will capture great wide angel videos or photos day or night.
Compared to the Canon EF-S 10-22mm equivalent at f/3.5-4.5, this lens is a light hungry beast with a constant aperture across the full zoom range. This lens is not only great for landscape shots, but is a preferred choice for steadicam or stabilized camera shots. We will talk more about exciting flying stabilized camera shots later on.
The Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 Zoom Lens is considered by many as one of the greatest landscape lenses, and for the money one of the best.

The Tokina AT-X 116 PRO DX is an ultra-wide angle lens with a fast f/2.8 aperture for better photography in low-light situations. Many photojournalists consider having an f/2.8 aperture a must for any lens in their camera bag.
Based on the award-winning optical design of the AT-X 124 PRO DX (12-24mm f/4) lens, the AT-X 116 PRO DX has a slightly shorter zoom range to maintain optical quality at wide apertures.
Tokina’s exclusive One-touch Focus Clutch Mechanism allows the photographer to switch between AF and MF simply by snapping the focus ring forward for AF and back toward the camera to focus manually.
The footage the Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 captures is in a word just plain beautiful. When your next planning to create a website video, think of a powerful and majestic scene, because with this lens you can now pull it off on a budget. This lens is perfect for landscape footage, trade shows and recording large conferences or anywhere you need to capture a large audience.
