Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 AT-X 116 PRO DX SD

Review Date: Oct 30, 2010 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $726.00 | Rating: 10 

Pros: Excellent sharpness. Good distortion. Smooth zoom and focus ring. Great price. Can be used on full-frame at 14mm (without filters). Very solid build.
Only 1.45 zoom. No stabilizer (don't really care). No weather sealing.

I get excellent sharpness at all ranges at f/4 and above.
Still incredibly very good at f/2.8.
Color rendition is great, too.

For Nikon mount it uses in-body AF motor so it's great for high-end bodies, and pretty silent to me; but won't focus on low-end bodies. Distortion is very good but I've seen better. Zoom and focus rings are very smooth and give a very high-quality feel. Great price for the features. I can use on full-frame at 14mm (without filters). Build quality is very solid like a tank.
Bokeh is nice, too; I can focus pretty close to the subject, giving it a nice wide area bokeh.

I consider this as a prime lens (only 1.45 zoom).
It has no stabilizer but I don't really care.
It doesn't have weather sealing.
