Lens Review
Introduction | Tokina AT-X PRO SD 11-16 F2.8 IF DX II Nikon mounted on Nikon D7000 | Tokina AT-X PRO SD 11-16 F2.8 IF DX II Canon mounted on Canon EOS 7D | Tokina AT-X 116 PRO DX II versus competition | Conclusion

While the newer version can’t quite match its predecessor in overall sharpness, Tokina has improved the overall uniformity of the lens, and if you’re a Nikon user the inclusion of a AF motor (over the older screw-type AF system of earlier Nikon bodies) seems promising. Despite the slight drop in performance, the constant f/2.8 aperture remains the principal attraction and at the price it still represents good value.
