AT-X 28-70mm PRO SV f2.8 lensThe range of AT-X PRO lenses from Tokina is set to increase with the launch of a new AT-X 28-70mm PRO SV f2.8 lens.

By using new manufacturing technology and materials, Tokina say they have not only improved the barrel design for more comfortable handling but also reduced the overall weight of the lens, which has resulted in a lower cost AT-X lens to the end user.

The 28-70mm features a constant f2.8 aperture throughout the zoom range, which is excellent for low light photography at any focal length, while the wide aperture allows more light through for picture taking in difficult lighting situations.

The lens can easily be switched from auto focus to manual modes. While in manual focus, the lens has a damped action for smooth precise focus movement. Use of filters is convenient thanks to the non-rotating 77mm filter thread on the front lens barrel.


Pricing and availability
The AT-X PRO 28-70 SV is available in Nikon and Canon fittings from July 2002, with Minolta and Pentax available from August. Suggested retail prices for all fittings is £319.99.
