I am afraid the Tokina 11-16mm is not yet available for the Pentax-mount, Barberian. So far its Canon-, Nikon- and latest addition, the Sony-mount (approx. $ 1.000,-!!!) ---> http://forums.steves-digicams.com/pe...lens-sony.html

But look on the bright side - you will save a lot of money......!



BTW - Thank you for your kind words!

Many Pentax lenses are actually made by Tokina. If there is a Pentax lens with those specifications, there's a good chance it's your Tokina.

pentax's 12-24 is very similar to the tokina minus a coating and i think the AF is a little difference.

however they have yet to make the 11-16 a pentax yet.

I have had the 11-16 about half the time in comparsion to my other lenses since i have gotten it. It is well worth the money i spent on it.

The 12-24 seems to be a great lens.

Walter might want to see if he can get one in his hands at a store and find out if it meets his needs.

I hadn't seen this series. Really beautiful photographs. D90 + Tokina 11-16 seems to fit your needs like charm Walter! Stunning dof.

wow! i really like these types of pictures, but i have no idea how to take them, is it all to do with the type of lens used or is there some editing done in something like photoshop etc ?

Wonderful series, just love the pictures.

There are a whole bunch of people who are not happy this lens isn't available in Pentax-mount as it's a faster lens than the DA 12-24. Most of my wide-angle pictures are in decent light so the 12-24 works quite well.

I don't disagree here, Ordo - a powerful combination, indeed! Good, solid quality (all metal = heavy) to the lens too. And with an aperture of f2,8 it's practically unbeatable...

My problem is that the D90 does only provide a maximum of 3 bracket-shots, which for me and my use is somewhat limiting, because I usually shoot both 5 and sometimes 7 brackets to be able to retain all values in high-contrast files.

Thank you for stoping by and your nice comments!

Thank you for your kind comments, Blaupunkt!
You will learn in time. It is just a matter of experimenting and reading / learning, for instance here at Steve's. You will get ideas and good advice from members.
Good luck!

Yes, Pentax-owners must be patient to wait for that lens - if it ever happens...? Mind, you - Tokina just released this lens with Sony-mount and it is almost 1000 $ !! So, you might as well use the 12-24 and save a lot of money!


BTW - thank's for your kind words of appreciation.
