5. Chromatic Aberration

Chromatic aberration is quite a serious problem for all of Tokina’s wide angle lenses. Just remember that Tokina 12-24 mm at the most difficult combination of its shortest focal length wide-open, produced an enormous score of almost 0,28%. The value reached by Tokina 16-50 mm at 16 mm was not much smaller.

Tokina AT-X 116 PRO DX AF 11-16 mm f/2.8 - Chromatic Aberration


Looking at the graph above, we can say the 11-16 mm outperforms its older buddies. In its case, the top value reaches no more than 0,23%, it is therefore lower than in Tokina 12-24 and 16-50. Unfortunately, while with the others, CA would decrease along with the rise of focal length, the level of the aberration in 11-16 hardly depends on the focal length or the aperture used. No matter what combination we choose, the aberration keeps the level of about 0,21%. It’s not good news, as the very value is what we consider the line between a high level and a very high level of CA.
