Great work. Somewhat off topic question though... Do you mount your Tokina 11-16 on your 5D3 at all? I have a tokina 11-16 and will be getting a 5D3 very soon and wanted to know if it was worth bringing in my camera bag or just keeping it in the car with my "emergency" crop body. Is the bower significantly sharper? I'm aware the tokina is usable at 14mm on up and I don't mind the vignette too much.
Thank you =)
I often prefer my bower 14mm over the tokina but I always keep it in my bag when I'm doing wide shots incase I don't want the curved edges of the bower. It is definitely a nice lens and vignette free at 16mm. The bower 14mm is better then the tokina at 14mm but if the tokina is the only super wide that you have then it is great on the 5D. Def. keep in you bag. Also the bower is not AF and the tokina is, so that is good for event situations when you need AF.
Stupid question, Bower and Samyang 14mm 2.8 are the same thing but under different brand names?
I am on the same boat as Chosenbydestiny. I have never seen any sample shots of Tokina 11-16 on a 5D, let alone on a 5DIII. Would be of great help if you have any real life shots using this setup, I was wondering just how bad the vignette is really. I dont mind the falloff that much as long as its not too crazy.
