Tokina wide-angle zoom lens review: Interesting third-party wides

A wide-angle is a must-have lens for landscape and architectural photographers, with a versatile wide-angle zoom often favored by those shooting press, weddings, events, or street photography. That there are different DSLR sensor sizes (35mm full-frame or cropped APS-C) means that it’s important to buy a lens designed specifically for each format. This is especially true for wide-angle zoom lenses, because although a full-frame format wide-angle will still work on APS-C, the crop means it’s not really wide-angle.

The Nikon D800E is a 36 megapixel full-frame sensor DSLR with the anti-aliasing filter removed, which should result in higher resolution, sharper images compared to the regular D800. The D800E also offers 1080p HD video, a 3.2-inch LCD screen and a viewfinder with 100% coverage. Read our in-depth Nikon D800E review to find out if you should choose it instead of the D800.

The Nikon D800E will surely make a big wave, not only because of its massive image capture figure of 36.3 megapixels, making it Nikon’s highest res camera and possibly the industry’s highest figure for a full frame DSLR. It also should rival many higher priced medium format cameras and see deployment by fashion and ad […]
