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 Canon mount version has a slightly higher Sharpness score, and lower CA when measured on the Canon EOS 7D compared to the Nikon combination, the optical quality is in fact very similar. As with the Nikon mount version however, the DxOMark score, is two points lower than its predecessor and for pretty much the same reasons.
