Sorry to jump in but I recently got the tokina 12-24 for the marklll also. Most of the vignetting shown in the picture above is from the hood, not the lens itself. Remove it hood and you can go to almost 13mm. I prefer a hood so I modified the wider profile canon hood to fit the tokina to get same results. Excellent lense

Sigma 12-24 for a really uga or a canon 17-40 would be the best choices to it. I really can't understand people that own a 1d and are trying to use ef-s lens with a lot of vignetting. I'm more a glass invester instead of buying a great camera. This is the same as buying a car but with tires of a bicycle.

Nice analogy but not completely right since the Tokina is not analogous to bicycle tires!! The Tokina's IQ is as good if not better than Canon's offerings; I have owned the 17-40 and 16-35 and the Tokina (as far as IQ goes) is just as sharp. I think if you search around the net, you will read this same comment from many users. My 1D is a great camera and I have owned and own some real quality glass. I always preferred Canon glass since I felt that the IQ was better than the third party offerings. But my mind changed with the Tokina.........I compared shots from the Canon 17-40 and the Tokina and they were exactly the same. (to my eye!!). The one thing that Canon was better at was the colours but since I shoot in RAW, this was a non-issue because I could easily achieve the same colour (again, to my eye) with a little post-processing. Someone has also mentioned that the severe vignetting can be alleviated by removing the hood..........correct!​!!

I own the tokina 12-24 and the canon 17-40 and actually like the 12-24 better.

I just got my 1D mark III not to long ago, but I don't shoot with ultra wide angle lens much. I do have the tokina 12-24 which I would use with my 20 and 40D.
Am I understanding right, that as long as you are more than 13-14mm you are ok. Or is this lens good all through 12-24 without the lens hood? Sorry just a little confused.:confused:

I believe the post stated that without the hood, he could shoot as wide as 13mm FL without vignetting. The issue isn't the same as with EF-S lenses where there is danger of damaging the mirror because of protruding members at the rear of the lens.

I love my tokina and I very rarely shoot that wide, so I guess I'm good. Thanks ;)

This should be interesting since I have the Tokie 12-24 and about to recieve my 1DmkII (1.3x crop) today... I guess I'll do some testing and contribute a bit more on this thread with the results I get... Stay tuned...

Yes, without the Tokina hood or with the Canon hood and minor mod to it to fit tokina lens you will be good for almost 13mm. Mod to canon hood does not prevent use on canon lens by the way. You would'nt even know it was done.

Thought this might help a bit.

These are taken on a 1D mark III with the Tokina 11-16 (NOT the 12-24 that's mentioned in this thread a lot). All shot at F/8

11mm

Great info. Realeyes, which hood did you modify to fit the Tokina?
And Picturecrazy, I know you have kept saying the 11-16 is stellar, as have others.
Were those without the hood?
All very interesting.

yes, those were taken without the hood. I actually don't use the hood with the 11-16 because I have no room left in my bag for another hood LOL. I primarily use the 11-16 indoors so that's why I ditched the hood. Yes, the odd time I have to deal with flare, but the tokina/1D is light enough that I can hold it with one hand and use my left hand as a shield to block the flare source. I suppose you could also just take a bastard file to the 11-16 hood to shrink it down a bit to work on a 1D.

Darn! Too bad you don't have a camera. You could take some photos and...oh, wait....;)
