There are no galleries for this lens so I thought I would start one :)

Take a look at the comparisons via DXO using the 5D3, comparisons vary on the 5DII.

5D3:
16mm
2.8-Canon
4/5.6 Tokina by a mile
8 Tokina
11 Tokina
22 Canon by a hair


20mm
2.8 Canon slightly better
4/5.6 Tokina
8 Tokina
11 Tokina
22 Even

28mm
2.8 Tokina
4/5.6 Tokina
8 Tokina
11 Tokina
22 Even

I see Canon being slight better at 2.8 in all the tests on the 5D3...( I'm using the Tokina for my wide angle star shots and trails at 2.8 and its really really good)... fantastic at f16 for landscapes. Here is one out at Badwater this year.. Flarealicious
Iso 800 f22 at 1/100


With some Flare or should I say "Flair"... at f22


at f14

I like the lens a lot stopped down, wide open it's fine but no such thing as resolution in the corners, and there's some CA/purple flaring with highlights. Otherwise it is great, but wish I could apply NDs for long daylight exposures

I haven't had this lens long yet, only a few weeks, but I've been enjoying it a lot. It has really great resolution, though reports of its tendency to flare were not exaggerated. The large cap that comes with it actually works pretty well to block the sun at times to reduce flare, but that also necessitates holding the camera and lens in one hand which is somewhat heavy.

Here's another. The previous one was f/8 and 1/30s at 21mm on a Canon 6d. This one was f/16 at 16mm, 1/30s on the same 6D.

A few more pictures with this lens. One thing I've noticed is that my 6D consistently underexposes the images, necessitating an adjustment of anywhere from 2/3 of a stop to 1.5 stops (just based on what I have to adjust it to for the picture to look "right"). If anyone else uses this lens and comes across this thread, I'd be interested to know if they also have this experience.

The images are not only downsized somewhat to fit within the attachment size limits, but they are also admittedly not the sharpest pictures I've been able to produce with this lens due to some motion blurring. It happened to be raining out so I was using the camera with one hand braced against my other arm while holding an umbrella.
