    Tokina AT-X Pro SD 12-24 f4 (IF) DX

    My new toy arrived yesterday at the store I ordered it from. On a nice RAINY day! grrrrr.

    I will make some photos of how it looks on my EOS 350D later today. It is very well made, feels nice in weight on the 350D. Focussing is very fast and surprisingly silent. Barrel distortion seems very low for a wide zoom like this.
    No time to test it yet... but I do have two photos to share that I made on my way home.

    Looks good under the conditions. I weighed in a lot of info on this lens before getting my Canon EF-S 10-22mm, the Tokina is a fine lens.

    Something I just now noticed, the Tokina is a DX (APS-C digital) lens, but from about 15.5mm on to 24mm it is normally usable on a full frame camera! I wonder if it would be usable all the way to 12mm on a 1.3x crop camera like cwphoto has.

    so, it fits on a regular full frame slr?

    Yes, but most 3rd party "Di II/DC/DX" lenses do, they do not use "EF-S".

    My Sigma 18-50 vignets like crazy though, totally unusable. But this Tokina seems very uable on full frame from 16mm up.

    Neat!

    The first looks a little soft, were you focused in the middle?

    Do you have a 100% crop of the 2nd, with the branches? Just wondering on any fringing.

    Thanks for sharing the samples.

    The 1st was indeed focussed at the center. Camera was on ground level, pointing a bit up. One of those situations where live preview with swivel display would come in handy.

    The lens does not "purple fringe" but it does suffer from chromatic aberations, as noted in tests. It does not vignet a lot, less than other wide angle lenses anyway. I will try to make some test shots where the lens can be judged a it better over the weekend.
