The Tokina ATX-i 11-16mm F2.8 CF is re-design of Tokina’s Best Selling ATX version with the same focal length. The new model offers an improved user experience and better image quality. The constant- aperture lens provides excellent edge-to-edge sharpness and resolution. Reduces flare and ghosting, while maintaining excellent contrast and color. A new waterproof topcoat also makes it easier to clean. The lens retails for $449 USD.
Re-engineered to meet the needs of Canon and Nikon’s latest crop-sensor cameras like the Canon 90D and Nikon’s D500 APS-C type camera sensors. The lens is optimized for landscape, astrophotography and architecture image making.
It is also popular among cinematographers too, because the lens provides a wide cinematic feel, minimized breathing, no edge distortion while panning, and the overall weight and internal focus design makes it an ideal choice for gimbal work.
The One-Touch Focus Clutch Mechanism makes switching from AF to manual focus (MF) simple. While in AF mode the user only needs to snap the focus ring back toward the camera to engage “real” manual focus control. This gives photographers an authentic tactile MF feel with hard stops on either side of the focus range like traditional manual lenses. Additionally, the directional rotation of the focus ring matches the direction of proprietary Nikon and Canon lenses.
The new Tokina ATX-i 11-16mm F2.8 CF incorporates a complex optical design, with 13 elements in 11 groups. Using 2 aspherical lenses including a large aspherical P-MO element and 2 all-glass molded Low-Dispersion (SD) elements, the lens effectively suppresses chromatic and spherical aberrations. The front element provides super-low distortion and low light fall-off for straight lines and minimal exposure vignetting.
