WoW! Really great lens!!
I purchased this to replace my Canon 16-35mm that I had dropped..I was looking for a cheaper replacement and decided on the Tonika after reading a few reviews. WOW!...really really great lens, fast, sharp and very well made. I find it well built and feels great to work with. Id say its just as good as the Canon it replaced!! I now use it very often for weddings and commercial photography...works a treat and well worth the investment. Id recommend this lens for anyone with the same needs.
Extremely sharp lens for a full frame camera with almost no distortion.
I bought this lens for my 5D mkIII - I already had the Canon 17-40mm lens, but had heard that the Tokina was sharper (and of course a full 1mm wider). I am amazed how sharp and crisp the images are from this lens!! Much better than the Canon 17-40 and with no distortion!! I cannot fault this lens - yes it is heavy, but it is extremely well made with excellent, quiet and accurate focussing. You will not be disappointed with the image quality from this lens.
Extremely happy with this lens i am a real estate photographer and the lens so far has performed very well,it even saves me time in photoshop ,sharp great colour ,happy with my purchase
