Re: Tokina 11-16 owners...

Cees,

I have the Novoflex adaptor, and yes, it does click and lock, although it sometimes feels as though it isn`t - I always give it a quick back and forth turn check to make sure it is locked.

Paul,

You have a faulty one ,or you didn't turn it all the way. Mine is very solid.

I guess for me it's wait for Birger.

Doesn't it have a manual iris option? Asking because I'm wanting to purchase one.

I just found this video with him using the Tokina and a steady cam of his friends skiing, amazing work.

Okay, I found out that the aperture is NOT manual. So I got the Sony A mount Tokina with the La-EA1 adapter. :)

Re: Tokina 11-16 owners...

Further development...

Received the A mount Tokina 11-16mm with the A to E mount adapter..and the camera fully controls the lens without any problems. The iris opens all the way then to the selected fstop as you stop down though...so any reasonable iris adjustments during shooting is impossible.

Re: Tokina 11-16 owners...

Richard,

I'm confused, does the iris work with the camera or not.

Hopefully that clarifies it. :)

It's a nice lens! And bigger than I thought...especially with the adapter. I recommend a lens support to stick on the rails under it. Great images.

Re: Tokina 11-16 owners...

So it seems to me that the best way to go is still with the Nikon mount and the adapter that gives manual control over the iris?

Re: Tokina 11-16 owners...

I ended up getting the A-mount, but I bought a Novoflex adapter with iris control rather than the Sony electronic control...

I just prefer having that control over the iris, but I figure Sony may come out with a new adapter in the future that does what I need and will pass metadata, so I went A-mount.

Re: Tokina 11-16 owners...

I love my Tokina 11-16. I have in Canon mount, and just received the Metabones adapter, so I can fuly control the iris from the camera.

Re: Tokina 11-16 owners...

FWIW the LA-EA2 adapter controls the Iris properly (doesn't do the open then down like the LA-EA1 does). So i don't see why the EA1 has to do this, technically it's obviously possible to dial it in properly.

This is with a SSM 2470 lens, perhaps others differ.

cheers
Paul

Re: Tokina 11-16 owners...

I may go with the metabones so I can use mine (rather than wait for the Birger, which I'm told is a two piece unit).

Ditto. I have the same lens from my EOS DSLRS, the Metabones adapter makes it work.
