Lenses / Tokina 16-28 PRO FX or Canon 16-35 L II or....
« on: April 25, 2013, 11:58:52 PM »
So yet another wide lens question. Sorry.  I am looking for an ultra wide lens for my Canon 6D.  I have narrowed it down to two lenses of interest.  The Tokina 16-28 F2.8 PRO FX and the Canon 16-35 F2.8L II.  Please do not recommend a fish eye lens.

First thing, I know there is a  big price difference.  Canon being more expensive.  This is one thing effecting my decision. 

I have heard some positive things on the Tokina lens and wish to hear from anyone who has this lens or has used it.  Is it optically better than the Canon?  Any flare?  How is sharpness?  I am also aware the Tokina  has a bulbous front element that prevents filters from being used. I suppose I can live with this.  I mainly want to use this lens for landscape, street shots at night and even photograph the night sky.
I realize there are other lenses like the Canon 17-40 L but that is an F4.  If I am doing any night photography an F2.8 would be better.  Correct?

So. The Canon 16-35 L II or the Tokina 16-35 F2.8 PRO FX?

Ok so it has been about a week since the release and purchase of the Canon 6D.  At least in my neck of the woods.  I have had very little time to test this new camera and its potential, but I will share some photos I took while playing around.  Unfortunately I have yet to find a program that opens 6D RAW files so I am forced to shoot in jpg.

Photos were taken at the historic Distillery District in Toronto. 
Anyone else have some 6D photos to share?

Links somehow died.  Photos can now be found below and throughout this thread

I hope to post some better photos as soon as I get more comfortable and familiar with the camera.
