Full Frame Canon EF-mount lens

This Tokina 16-28mm f/2.8 Pro FX lens features a full-frame EF mount to make it compatible with Canon's full-frame and cropped sensor DSLR and Cine cameras.

Wide-angle 16-28mm zoom

The Tokina 16-28mm f/2.8 Pro FX lens features a wide viewing angle of 107.11 at its widest and 76.87 when fully zoomed in (on full-frame cameras). These viewing angles makes the lens ideal for shooting group shots, nightscapes, architecture, landscapes, portraits, interiors, and other general wide-angle subjects.

Constant maximum aperture of f/2.8

A maximum aperture of f/2.8 throughout the entire zoom range greatly aids in low light shooting, gives exceptional depth of field control, and makes manual shooting easier as there is no need to adjust exposure settings after changing focal lengths.

Low dispersion elements and multi-layer coated optics

A combination of anti-reflective multi-layer coatings, three aspherical glass elements, and three SD super-low dispersion glass elements, greatly reduces aberrations and internal reflections to provide edge-to-edge sharpness, and reduce flare, ghosting.

Silent DC motor with GMR sensor

The 16-28 f2.8 uses a newly developed silent DC motor that allows the lens to focus faster and with less noise then previous generations. The AF motor is also coupled with a new GMR magnetic AF sensor that works together with the silent DC motor to increase AF speed.

Internal Focus

The front element of the Tokina 16-28mm f/2.8 Pro FX does not move when focusing; this makes using polarised and/or gradient filters effortless, as there is no need to re-adjust after focusing.

One-touch focus ring AF/MF

Switching between autofocus and manual focus is easy; simply snap the focus ring forward for autofocus, and back for manual focusing.

Other Features

  • 9-bladed aperture for pleasant bokeh
