It's all in german - but there are some pics: german DSLR-Forum (external link)

Summary: most of the owners there are enthusiastic, it could be a comparable rival to the Canon EF 16-35 mm. And also look here (external link).

Cheers

16-50 does not work with FF. Thanks for the suggestion.

Unfortunately none of the pictures on that German forum work for me :( looks like I'd have to sign up and be logged in for it...

It looks like a great lens on paper, but isn't this the one that won't allow screw-on filters? That was a big stumbling block for me...I considered that lens before buying my 16-35L II and ended up going with the Canon in the end...

I hear greatthings about this lens. It does not have filter thread. I probably keep my 17-40 for the filter options and wanting to add Tokina lens.

I've seen samples and personal reviews in a number of places. Most of the samples are fairly useless to be able to judge much (shot at f8 or around there). The one thing rarely mentioned but often seen in the sample images is bad, localized flare. I was considering this lens to replace a 17-40 for concerts but since I am almost always shooting into the lights, I doubt this lens would work well under those conditions.

Flare seems to be a consistent downfall with Tokina UWAs... I didn't notice how bad it was on my 11-16 until I got my 17-40L (and then 16-35L) and realized that I didn't have to keep cloning it out all the time haha

Photozone review: http://www.photozone.d​e …_ff/595-tokina162828eosff (external link)

Verdict

The Tokina AF 16-28mm f/2.8 AT-X Pro SD FX is a high-performance ultra-wide zoom lens that gives the Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8 USM L II a run for the money - but it's not a lens without flaws......

Thanks for the link...WOW it's a heavy bugger! 950g!! The 16-35L II is considered heavy at 634g. I know it's not a huge deal for many (including me), but for some (I remember a thread about lightweight lenses a while ago by people who really cared about weight), that might be a deciding point.

Also (and I'm really not hating on the Tokina, one of my all-time favourite lenses was the Tokina 11-16 2.8), but is photozone comparing the Tokina to the ORIGINAL 16-35L? If they are, that's a little unfair, seeing that that lens is out of production (and has been for years) and is inferior to the current 16-35L II.

They reviewed the II on the FF tests.

That's looking good for the Tokina, then :)
