Just wondering if anyone has had a chance to use this new lens yet? Does the version II of the 11-16mm tokina reduce the flair that is so often complained about?
Or is this lens listed on several sites but not really available yet. (Only pre-order)
Thanks in advance.

From what I read, the first version was technically compatible with both. On the crop, obviously, it's 11-16 (not including your crop factor). On the FF, it's compatible 14mm and above. Essentially, it's a zoom on the crop, and a decent prime on the FF.

I spoke to Tokina here in the U.K. last week and they still had no idea when it was coming.

If its here by Christmas I think we will be lucky.

I currently own the DX i and can't find anything wrong with it. With an additional 100-200 USD for the DX ii, I don't really see a reason to upgrade.

The only reason I see is that the DX ii has a better build quality and has an internal auto-focus for the Nikon bodies that doesn't have it in the body. Most Canon bodies have a motor to focus, so the DX i is fine with auto focus. =]

Been following up on the DX ii for the past couple of months and so far the Canon mount was suppose to be out by now in the US but seems like its going to come probably later this year. =]

Build and optics should be the same. The improvements,from what I read, for canon are a quieter focus motor (similar to the one they use on the 16-28 f2.8...not USM quiet though) and better coatings for improved flare and contrast.

I'm pretty sure the v2 model only exists for Nikon bodies at the moment.

Perhaps somebody could track down some good reviews from that side of the fence.

That is pretty much what I have been seeing. Preorders and shipping in 7-14 days. Nothing in stock currently. The confusion came when I saw a rebate for this lens that expires on Sept 30th. So wondering if they plan to have it out by then?

There is a discussion elsewhere on which 3rd party manufacturers licensed the Canon AF tech. Looks like Tokina licensed the Canon Marketing Department! :D

I had the lens for about a week and used it on the nikon d7000. Since then i have switched back to canon. The new version is just as sharp but DOES handle flare a lot better. The lens hood is also more sturdy than the first one. A nice lens overall.

Any chance you could share a more detailed review, preferably with some pictures? ;)

Yep, that's been my experience. I use it all the time on my T1i, and occasionally on my A2e film (FF) camera. If you want vignetting, it's a nice UWA ff lens...

Actually, no Canon EOS camera (film or digital) has ever had a focus motor in the body. The EOS system requires that the AF motor be in the lens. The current Tokina 11-16 has such a focus motor in it's Canon-mount version.
