Tokina AT-X 16.5 135mm DX Compact Super Wide Zoom Lens

Press Release:

Kenro has announced the UK release of the Tokina AT-X 16.5 135mm DX, a new compact super wide zoom lens, based on the award-winning AT-X 124 PRO DX (12-24mm f/4) model.

The lens begins at 16.5mm making it ideally suited for scenic and travel photography in addition to being a great standard lens for most general photographic situations, offering an equivalent angle of view of 25-200mm in full format 35mm terms.

The AT-X 16.5-135 DX's optical design benefits from three aspherical elements, one all glass precision-moulded element and 2 compound elements yielding high contrast. Additionally two Super-low Dispersion (SD) glass elements correct chromatic aberration. It also features a newly designed high-precision mechanical zoom cam system which minimizes play and eliminates zoom creep.

This new addition to the Tokina range 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: 16.5 - 135mm
  • Maximum aperture: f/3.5-5.6
  • Minimum aperture: f/22
  • Optical construction: 15 elements in 9 groups
  • Coatings: Multi-layer coating
  • Angle of view: 82° ~ 12°
  • Minimum focus distance: 19.7 in. (0.5m)
  • Macro Ratio: 1:5.43
  • Zooming system: Rotary type
  • Number of diaphragm blades: 9
  • Filter size: 77mm
  • Dimensions: 3.46 in. (84mm) X L 3.1 in. (78mm)
  • Weight: 21.5 oz. (610g)
  • Lens Hood BH-777 Star bayonet hood.
The lens comes with either a Canon or Nikon fit and has an RRP of £799. For more information please visit the Kenro website.

A bizzare press release that seems to just have used bits of previously posted 'news'. On the one hand it states that this is based on the 12-24mm lens...not so...impossible optically, and this comment was said about the 11-16mm Tokina. In another section the focal lengths are described as 'super wide', but later on it's said that the focal lengths are resricted to maintain optical quality. Which is it? This article is rubbish and tells me nothing other that the fact that the PR people for Tokina need to get their act together.
