Overall, Tokina's 16.5-135mm zoom misses out on a Gold Award because several aspects could be improved. Of most concern is that there is clear chromatic aberration in some real-world pictures. Even so, this is a very versatile lens that can accommodate a range of picture-taking situations. Admittedly, the maximum focal length and its corresponding widest aperture are nothing to shout about but that may not matter if the lens has been chosen for its impressive wideangle capabilities.
