The Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 AT-X Pro DX is a high quality, fast aperture ultra-wideangle lens designed for Nikon DX-sensor cameras. Its fast f/2.8 aperture is something not available from anyone else in such a wide lens. Reviews are excellent – although most do note its not quite as sharp at f/2.8 as it is stopped down a bit. For landscape / cityscapes, it’s a go-to lens.
Please note: This lens does not have a built-in autofocus motor. Therefore, it is not fully compatible with Nikon DSLR such as the Nikon D40, D60, D3100, D5100, etc.
Also, we do not recommend using the Tokina 11-16mm f2.8 with the Nikon D7000 camera body. We’ve noticed, as well as been told by renters, poor image quality when shooting between 11-13mm due to AF inaccuracy. We’ve also had numerous reports of Error messages that only occur on the D7000 camera body. If using a D7000 or any Nikon DSLR without built-in AF motor, we suggest the newer Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 AT-X Pro DX-II
