I have a Tokina ATX AF116 DXII S - 11-16 mm F2.8 AT-X (II) 116 Pro DX for Sony and I recently ruined my Sony α65 through a salt water wave which caught me out during a storm photoshoot.
Weeks later, when I switch on the camera I can see liveview through the viewfinder and on screen wherever I point the camera. But after three seconds it shows "Screen Error" on a black screen so nothing further can be done.
I have sent it away along with the camera for a possible repair. Although they opened up the camera and wrote it off, they stated they couldn't open the lens but wrote it off anyway due to salt water damage as it would be too expensive to send away and have it done properly. Anyway having replaced my camera with an α77 II, my question is: would it be ok to try the Tokina lens on the new camera to see if it works? Or could it possibly damage the new camera?
