The new Tokina AT-X 116 PRO DX (Nikon fit) is an ultra-wide angle lens with a fast f/2.8 aperture for better photography in low-light situations. Many photojournalists consider having an f/2.8 aperture a must for any lens in their camera bag.
Based on the award-winning optical design of the AT-X 124 PRO DX (12-24mm f/4) lens, the new AT-X 116 PRO DX has a slightly shorter zoom range to maintain optical quality at wide apertures.
Tokina's exclusive One-touch Focus Clutch Mechanism allows the photographer to switch between AF and MF simply by snapping the focus ring forward for AF and back toward the camera to focus manually. There is no need to change the AF-MF switch on Nikon cameras, everything is accomplished by the focus ring.
The lens is designed for Digital cameras with APS-C sized CMOS and CCD sensors, not designed for cameras with Full Frame sensors.

Perfect for architectural interiors
About Me Hobbyist/Enthusiast
Comments about Tokina 11-16mm f2.8 AT-X PRO DX AF - Nikon Fit:
Recently bought this lens to photograph architectural interiors with my Nikon D7000. So far I have had consistently impressive results with this lens. Sharpness, colours, contrast and autofocus all spot on. Also very little distortion & F2.8 aperture handy too.Also feels built like the proverbial tank but a little heavy. Look forward to trying the lens for landscape photography.All in all fantastic definitely recommend.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

A fine lens, I'm glad I bought it
By Bill the Bodger
I bought this lens on the strength of Ken Rockwell's review and some fantastic pictures on Flickr's Tokina 11-16 group. I didn't know I wanted a wide angle zoom until then. Does that make me sound a bit stupid? However, I love this lens and it has opened up a new field of photography for me. The one thing that concerned me was the limited zoom range. Why did they bother? Why not just make an 11mm prime? Having used the lens, I sort of get the point, it's got just enough adjustment to be useful but time will tell on that one.Like all very wide angle lenses, you get distortion of the verticals at the extreme edges but that can be used constructively. Colours are good, focus clear, contrast sharp. What's not to like?
Best wide angle available for DX
Having been through a lot of the options available to cover the wide end on a D7000, I finally tried the 11-16 - delighted i did and bought it immediately. The build is superb, the lens has a great mechanical feel to it, particularly the focus clutch for moving to manual focus. I was initially put off by this as am used to AF-S lenses with the ability to grab focus at all times, but having used it am happy to say its quick and easy to move from manual to auto focus without having to take my hand from the lens, even with the close proximity of the focus settings on the D7000 I've found this very intuitive. (Of course, with the faster 2.8 aperture of this lens focusing is slightly more critical than with slower lenses, but is still not as paramount as with longer lenses.I've put the limited focal range as both a pro and con - for some the limitations with working with such a dedicated wide lens may be more demanding, but as other reviews have pointed out this limit really has enabled them to develop a lovely sharp lens. Although it is quite susceptible to flare this is manageable as long as you keep on the short hood and only use decent quality filters, if any.Having now used the lens for over a year I've no regrets in having bought it, and given (relatively)compact weight it tends to be in my bag the vast majority of the time - even works rather well on my F100 at the 16mm end!

Pinsharp, fast, better than Nikons 14-24
Have used the Tokina 11-16 for all purpose use including event photography, static displays, landscapes, and holiday photos. Used with a D300. Best to consider this lens a prime lens - I rarely use the 16mm end of the zoom as 11mm is just fantastic.Wide open at 2.8 the sharpness is excellent, edge-to-edge, and contrast is as good as Nikons Nano-coated lenses. Stopped down to 5.6, the sharpness and clarity is like a razor blade! The only weakness of the lens is that it does not control lens flare well when shooting in bright sunlight.Build quality is superb with a metal body and mounts, and the ability to switch quickly from manual to autofocus by push/pulling the focus ring is a great design. A worthy companion to my Nikon 24-70 f2.8 N to cover most walkabout shooting situations. This particular lens is a limited production lens from Tokina. For the superlative optical performance, it is immense value for money.Note: on a FX format camera, the lens can still be used without vignetting at 16mm.

11mm is SO wide - it provides a whole new perspective on life! (A filter is essential in case the front element makes contact with what you are photographing!)Lighter and brighter than expected, and very easy to use. Just need some time now to make sure I use it well!The reviews I read before buying this lens all raved about it, and their enthusiasm was fully justified. Auto/Manual selection is simple and instinctive, the zoom ring works smoothly and evenly (if you ever want to leave the 11mm setting), and focusing is quick and quiet.A super lens!
My first non Nikon lens
I was as little nervous about buying non Nikon Glass as my Nikon 50mm 1.8 and 18-200 VR are both so good. I need'nt have worried, this lens mathches up to them in every respect. Build quality is excellent, and it seems extremely rugged. Just as well as I like to do landscapes and often take to the hills with all my kit. Image quality is also spot on, sharp and reasonably quick to focus with little or nothing in the way of chromatic aberations. I find exposure is consistent making it an easy lens to use once you get used to the wide field of view.I did find it fiddly to attach at first, but am getting used to it now. Not really a problem, just needs a little time to get used to.In my opinion it should be on anyone's list who is looking for a lens of this type.

My New Favorate Lens
from Northern Ireland
Ive only used one other wide angle F2.8 lens that can compare and that is Nikons' own 14-24mm F2.8 , the tokina is the crop sensor equivalent. The limited zoom range can be a bit of a bummer when i consider i mostly use it at 11mm it's not really a bit deal.
