The Tokina AT-X 12-28 mm F/4 lens has a super-wide to standard zoom range while maintaining a constant fast f/4.0 aperture. This makes it a very versatile lens for different photo applications such as scenery, street scenes photography and event coverage. The lens is designed for DSLR cameras with APS-C (DX) sized sensors.
The optical design uses aspherical elements and super-low dispersion glass matches even the highest mega-pixel DX sensors cameras available. One aspherical lens element is positioned in the front group. This together with another precision moulded glass aspherical lens element placed in the rear group ideally focuses marginal light rays and maintains sharpness at the edges while also correcting distortion. The use of two different SD (Super-low Dispersion) glass elements, typeFK01 and FK03, corrects chromatic aberration. The combination of these specialised elements in the optical design yield excellent sharpness and colour.
The AF "GMR magnetic precision" control sensor is capable of fastauto-focus. Tokina placed the sensor closer to the drive unit in the lens for faster communication between the controller and AF motor. This combined with the motor's high-precision focus control yields fast, accurate auto-focus.
Additionally, the "SD-M" (Silent Drive-Module) has highly lowered the sounds emitted by the auto focus drive system allowing for much quieter AF. Both Canon and Nikon mounts have a built-in AF motor. The Tokin AT-X 12-28 mm F/4 compact design makes the lens easy to carry and handle. Manual focus is achieved through Tokina's one-touch focus clutch AF/MF mechanism. Simply slide the manual focus ring forward for auto-focus or back for manual focus operation. The lens focus ring is damped in the manual mode for smooth and precise focusing.

It is well built, reassuringly chunky and the rubberised zoom ring is very smooth with just the right amount of feedback.
Push/pull switch for Auto/Manual mode at first feels odd but easy to get use to.
Sharpness seems fine and for a 12mm lens, the amount of distortion at the edges is acceptable.
One major problem with this lens is sun flair - it is overly easy to accidentally introduce this into your photo - sometimes the effect is nice but most of the time just irritating. Odd thing about it is that it is easy enough to get rid of this by using my hand to block the sun, which suggests if you get a hood with longer brims then this may not be a problem. Not sure if this is common to all Tokina lenses but 6 Canon and 2 Sigma lenses (and also two Sony e-mount lenses) I use regularly never have this problem. In fact I don't ever remember intruding flares accidentally with other lenses on my Canon 80D.
I would have initially been interested in the Nikon 10-24 but did not want to pay the high price for a lens I was unsure that I would use a lot.
Initially looking at both versions of the Sigma 10-20 as these are about half the price of the Nikon and found them to be very good, with the cheaper F4-5.6 version coming out slightly sharper.
I then tried the Tokina against the Sigma and initially looking at the centre of the frame could notice very little difference between the 2. However, at the edges there was a huge difference with the Tokina staying sharp into the corners whilst the Sigma became very unclear. Looking at a tree for example-on the Tokina you could make out the leaves, on the Sigma it was just a green something.
My other issue with the Sigma is that it only goes up to 20mm, so it would be difficult to leave on my camera all the time.
I therefore went for the Tokina due to the sharpness and extra zoom range.
I subsequently took it away on holiday and shot over 1,000 photos with it.
On getting home and displaying them on a large monitor, it was obvious there was something wrong.
Photos taken at the 12mm end of the range were fine, well exposed & sharp-whilst those taken at the 28mm end were badly overexposed, up to 3 stops in some circumstances.
I returned the lens and obtained a replacement, unfortunately this lens did exactly the same.
I have a number of other lenses and have tried these, all without a problem-so it cannot therefore be the camera.
I have now got a refund and am looking at going for the Nikon 10-24, which I should have probably got in the first place.
Note I have read of other users having the same problem with this lens on a D7100, with one user stating he then put the lens on a D5000 and it was fine.
It would therefore appear that this lens is not totally compatible with a D7100, which is strange as some of the best reviews on the internet have been done with this camera.
Note that this is a very good sharp lens that has an excellent zoom range, unfortunately it would appear not to work properly with a D7100.
