Been nothing but impressed with the images coming out of this lens. The detail you have to work with too is welcomed.

Come on people! I have one of these on order, to be delivered on Monday. In the mean time, I need to see more of the fantastic photos this lens can produce.

I got rid of my Tokina 12-24 (which I loved) a few months ago when I was planning on going FF and picked up at 17-40, but I realized I really don't shoot enough to justify that cost at this point. Now I'm debating getting rid of the 17-40 and picking up a copy of this lens instead. Looking through this thread the last few days, I'm pretty sold on it.

I had this lens too, and the sharpness was incredible. I just had a lot of problems with the flare ( bad Copy perhaps). An extra amount of flare was added with a CP filter. You would have thought i'd used a plexiglass filter over the lens. I am in the market for something else now. But for the colors and sharpness, the 11-16 is really good. Night time photography was super fun. There are a lot of great photos in this thread!!

I've had my 11-16 for a week now. I really like it. I bought it for video use on the 70D but so far it has seen more use on my 5DII shooting time lapse. I especially like the flare. Flares in photos are not generally liked but they bring awesomeness to video. My only complaint so far is that this lens does not work with my Tiffen variable ND filter. Bit of a bummer because I prefer to adjust exposure with the ND while filming.

An ode to my Tokina 11-16mm, what a fun lens. I literally sold my copy three hours ago. What better place than to relive the memories and inspire the new....

QUOTED IMAGE

All are great images, but this one was my fav! Those colors and motion around the small rock in the sand in the middle is fantastic.

Holy guacamole! These are all fantastic shots! :) If you don't mind me asking, what filter(s) did you use for these shots? (ND, GND, etc) I'm having trouble with some vignetting on my recent landscape shots, Do you have to use a slim filter with the Tokina?

Thanks for the comments :)

I have really only used a Hoya PRO cpl (not a slim version), and I did get mild vignetting at 11mm, but it's easily corrected in photoshop using content aware or the clone tool. The first shot I used a B+W nd1000 10 stop grad filter to create movement in the sky, then separate exposures for the foreground. All shots were created with 2-3 separate exposed raw files, merged in CS6 using layer masks etc. I tried using GND's once but to be honest, I find carrying around extra gear annoying. All I go out with is one lens and my tripod. I find less complications the better, and more time I can focus on composing my image. I'm not a purists who HAS to get it right in the camera, I'm about the final result, and whatever tool makes it easier, I will use. Plus I love the post processing side of things, it's just fun seeing the image come together.

How bad are you images vignetting?

The vignetting is not bad enough to ruin the image by any means, but its definitely present in the shot to the point where post-processing is necessary which inevitably brings out some of the noise in the corners. I suppose I could include fewer ground elements like grass and rocks, but of course the demands of the location come into play as well. Perhaps I need a better filter, as I've been using a cheap Haida filter which might be part of my problem. Maybe I need to commit to investing in a Lee filter system...

i have found that any planar filter will exacerbate falloff off center.

i think this has to do with the reflectivity of the filter itself.

the front element is highly curved, whereas the filter is not.

coated/high transmission filters should be better in that respect.
