The new Tokina AT-X 116 PRO DX 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 and there is no second AF/MF switch on the lens for Canon, everything is accomplished by the focus ring.

Comments about Tokina AT-X 116 Pro DX AF 11-16mm f/2.8 Lens For Canon:
I've had this lens for about two weeks now and can't believe I went this long without an UWA!The choice was between the tokina 11-16 f2.8 or the canon 10-22 f3.5-4.5. I chose the tokina for the wider aperature. I've already been on a shoot where I needed the extra stops of light. Had I got the Canon these shots would not have been possible.Not having a USM is a non-issue for me at this focal range.Image quality is amazing! The lens is also well built and has a nice weight to it.Well worth the price!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
