Tokina to ship AT-X 12-28 F4 PRO DX lens for Nikon from April 2013


Tokina has announced it will be shipping the AT-X 12-28 F4 PRO DX lens from April 2013 in Nikon mount, and June 2013 for the Canon version.  Announced at the CP+ 2013 tradeshow, the lens is a replacement for the company’s existing 12-24mm F4 wideangle zoom for APS-C cameras. But rather than making the lens wider to match its competitors, Tokina has chosen to extend it further into the ‘normal’ range, to give an 18-42mm equivalent zoom. The Japanese RRP of ¥90,000 is the same as that for the existing AT-X Pro DX 12-24mm F4 II lens. (via DCWatch)

I’m a big fan of the 11-16, but a longer range would always be appreciated. Still, I don’t think the 12-24 was particularly good above 18mm. Hopefully they made this thing uniform across the full range – would make a good upgrade, then.


Would have liked 10mm on the wide end. But it should be another stellar, sharp, UWA from Tokina. Hopefully the flare isn’t an issue.
