I preordered the Canon SL1 towards the end of March. The original release date on BestBuy’s site was April 28. It was bumped back to May 3 a few weeks ago and the that day has finally arrived.
I just received delivery of my new Tokina 11-16mm wide angle xoom lens for the D90. Usually the lens that are recommended for a camera are those manufactured by the same company, in this case Nikon. Rather than sticking to what rules would dictate, this lens made by Tokina is supposed to out perform even Nikon’s own 12-24mm and 14-24mm wide zooms as reviewed here by Ken Rockwell, and others. So here it is… (shot with the kit 18-105mm)
Here are some initial shots with the Tokina 11-16mm…
This one is at 11mm and about 8in from my iMac’s screen…
I’ll post up more images from this lens at some point. I’m planning on heading up to the North Georgia mountains to shoot the new year’s sunrise early tomorrow morning. We’ll see how they turn out.
