If there is one thing that I have learned from using ultra wide zoom lenses like the Tokina 11-16mm 2.8 is that you probably want to invest in an external flash for the best results. When I first started using this lens, I noticed that I have big, ugly shadows at the bottom of my photos whenever the build in flash is used and I soon discovered that the camera body cast this. Because the lens is so wide it can actually pick up this shadow, which does not look very good on a photo. It is not a problem when you are shooting outdoors or in decent light but for the best results you will want to use a quality external flash to combat this. This is something that is not unique to the Tokina as most ultra wide zoom lenses suffer from the same problem and it is something that can easily be prevented.
