Been thinking about this one for a while now. Decided to take the plunge and bought myself a Tokina 11-16 f2.8 DX for my Nikon D300s. I haven't had a chance to get out with it yet, maybe this weekend.

I've seen one the last time I was up in Phoenix... interesting lens, although not quiet the same build quality as Nikkor lenses have. But let us know how it works for you.

Hope you have a good time with it! I got the Sigma 8-16 right before a trip to the Smokies, but I was really disappointed with the results because I didn't know how to use a UWA. With a bit more practice it's a lens that I rarely leave home without, I love it! Can't remember who it is offhand, but someone on here has the Tokina and I believe there's a thread about it.

I haven't had the opportunity to use a wide angle lens before but I'm eager to get going with this Tokina. Seems to be pretty solid construction. The similar Nikon was just too expensive for me.

I have it and use it with my D90. Great lens, especially for landscape/cityscape.

Bluebear, how did this work out for you?

It's a little late to ask for advice but I just ordered the Tokina 12-24 -- I'm using a Nikon 5100 and Tokina doesn't offer the AF-S version of the 11-16 yet.

Judging from the reviews, Tokina is a very close second to Nikkor (for this lens) -- just wondering if you all agree?

A buddy of mine in Pa. has one of these. Good lens from what I've heard.

And the nice thing about Nikkor glass (and F-mount lenses) is that they can be used on a Canon with an adapter.

TeleThom, I've been away from here for a while so this is a little late getting back to you. I like the lens. I haven't had a chance to do much "fun" photography for a while so I haven't really used the Tokina much and am still getting used to wide angle photography. From the shots I have taken though, I can see that the lens is plenty sharp enough. I fact it is very sharp. I think that the new version of the 11-16 will now work with more Nikon bodies. You might want to check this out. Did you get the 12-24? How do you like it?

"This may sound like a really stupid use for the lens, but if you're looking at model home interiors, the lens is ideal."

Doesn't sound stupid at all. We needed a shot of one of our bedrooms for an international student we are hosting and this lens did a great job.

Looking forward to seeing your "up into the trees" snow photos when the time comes.
