Tokina 11-16 lens

Press Release:
Kenro has announced the popular Tokina AT-X 116 PRO DX lens is now available with a Sony fit.

Previously, this ultra-wide angle lens was only an option for Canon or Nikon owners, but now Sony users will be able to take advantage of the AT-X 116's fast f/2.8 aperture which is designed to give better results in low-light situations.

The AT-X 116 PRO features Tokina’s exclusive 'One-touch Focus Clutch Mechanism' that allows the photographer to switch between AF and MF simply by snapping the focus ring forward for AF and back toward the camera to focus manually. This allows for a fast and easy manual over-ride in difficult lighting situations.

This lens is based on the award-winning AT-X 124 PRO DX (12-24mm f/4) lens, the new AT-X 116 PRO DX has a slightly shorter zoom range to maintain optical quality at wide apertures. The optical system of the lens features a new multi-coating system that helps to reduce reflections that can cause flare and ghosting.

Further features include:
  • Focal length: 11 - 16mm
  • Maximum aperture: f/2.8
  • Minimum aperture: f/22
  • Optical construction: 13 elements in 11 groups.
  • Coatings: Multi-layer
  • Angle of view: 104°~82°
  • Minimum focus distance: 0.3m
  • Reproduction Ratio: 1:11.6
  • Focusing Mode: Internal Focusing
  • Zoom Mode: Rotary Zoom
  • No. Aperture blades: 9
  • Filter Size: 77mm
  • Lens length : 89.2mm
  • Lens Hood: BH-777
  • Weight: 560g
  • Accessories: Flower design Bayonet lens hood (BH77A).

Kenro Managing Director, Paul Kench commented on the release: "Many photojournalists consider having an f/2.8 aperture a must for any lens in their camera bag and I'm sure Sony users will be delighted to have the Tokina option now available to them."

I have the 12-24mm version - and it's optics and build quality are equal in performance to the equivalent Nikkor.

From what I read, this lens is even better than the 12-24mm version.
