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

Here's a few photos from it

One thing I do not like about the Tokina's (owned both the 12-24 and 11-16 lenses) is the CA is simply terrible compared to any UWA Canon I have used. Everything else though is great on them. Never had much issue with flare to be honest either.

Was it easily correctable with software?

For the most part yes. But I generally see more in those images than any corrected 17-40, 24-105, 10-22 image I have.

Any examples of the CA you had from when you had the lens? I would be interested in a side by side comparison if you happen to have any of the images still around. Thanks!

I will take a look. I doubt I have any identical type images, but I will see what I can find!

Have there been any professional reviews for this lens?

Edit: not professional, but at least some comparisons (external link)

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.

I'm confused here. So were your attached images from the Nikon mount then? I didn't think the II was yet available for Canon mount. I think my next purchase is going to be an UWA and the II is currently top of my list. Hopefully by the time I was thinking about pulling the trigger, probably my X-mas present time frame, there will be a bunch of reviews out for it.

I had the first version : very nicely built on par with L lens, sharp, a bit prone to flare.
AF doens't bother me at all, fast enough specially for that focal range.

If Tokina can improve on flare control, man, that'd be a killer lens :D

Yes, I owed the d7k and used the lens with that. I have since switched to canon and use the 5d2 now. It was a great lens...sharp, controlled flare well, and built tough.

the version two is updated with a focus motor for nikons only. other than that, the lens is the same exact as the original.

My understanding is that there are new coatings on the II on both the Nikon and Canon mounts as well to better control flair

This lens is now in stock and available from B&H.

"There have also been some adjustments made to the coating for slightly improved optical performance. Other than the optical coating change there are no changes to the Canon mount. The AT-X 116 PRO DX-II for Canon uses the same AF motor and AF drive system as the the previous model."
