Tokina has announced a fast premium wideangle zoom lens for full frame Nikon and Canon DSLRs.

The Tokina AT-X 16-28mm f/2.8 PRO FX is the first in a new range of Tokina full frame lenses and features a newly developed DC motor for fast yet quiet auto focusing, and incorporates three aspherical elements and three low dispersion glass elements.

The lens also utilises Tokina’s one-touch focus clutch mechanism, which allows photographers to switch between auto and manual focus by snapping the focus ring forwards or backwards. Although the 16-28mm f/2.8 PRO FX is designed for full frame cameras, it can also be used on APS-C sensor cameras, giving an equivalent focal length of approximately 24-42mm.

Paul Kench. Managing Director or Tokina’s UK distributor, Kenro, said of the lens: ‘The AT-X 16-28mm is the ideal choice for anyone who’s serious about landscape or architectural photography”
The lens is available now at at RRP of £1072. Visit for more info.
