Sony 11-16 vs tokina 11-16 rehoused pl
Posted 02 August 2015 - 08:48 PM
I'm interested in either purchasing a Sony SCL-P11X15 11-16mm or a gloptics rehoused tokina 11-16 2.8.
Can you advise on which lens would perform better or worse and any technical considerations, if pricing were equal.. If you have any experience..
Would be for an amira, red epic and new blackmagic Ursa mini. (but not limited to those cameras). To supplement my red zoom 50-150 and 17-50 for doc work.

While I haven't used either (in a long long time) I do think Tonika is about to, or already has, made a factory PL mount version of the 11~16.

I don't much trust swappable mounts-- without having the right tools to properly columnate the lenses (vital for wides.) I'd go with factory if you could; of Ducolos.

I can't guarantee the 2.8 is parfocal zoom at every f stop. For documentary interview, you might be tack sharp zoomed in at 16mm and then soft at 11mm. Have to run tests at f/8 and higher, and f/8 and lower, and be sure.
The 3.0 cine is designed to be parfocal zoom. I hope the pull focus on the cine version is better than the still camera version, seeing the 0.8 pitch focus gearing. And nice to have manual f-stop ring.
as you've mentioned, no PL version yet for the 11-16. Only for the 16-35mm and the 50-135mm. Stay tuned!
