Notes and images from testing the Tokina 11-16mm f2.8 AT-X PRO lens for Nikon.
The new lens arrived today. I haven’t had much time to check it out yet but my first impression is that the glass is clear! I mean, images look sharp like I remember they used to when I shot film with expensive glass.
This is an iris (I think) shot from about 1 foot away. Focal length was 16mm. 1/200 of a second at f 4.5. Both images are from the same raw file. I’m pleased that the enlargement retained much of the sharpness and quality of the raw image.
It is an AWESOME lens at a great price!
I snuck away for a few days and gave the lens a workout. Here are some images.
