Tokina has officially announced the latest offering in its new and planned lineup of lenses: the ATX-i 11–20mm f/2.8 CF. Like the 11–16mm f/2.8 and 100mm f/2.8 released earlier this year, the updated classic lens is designed for Nikon and Canon cropped-sensor (APS-C) cameras.

The ultra-wide-angle rectilinear zoom, which has a 17.6–32mm equivalent focal length range, is a viable lens for underwater photography. It boasts an optical design incorporating a series of aspherical and low-dispersion elements that suppress spherical aberrations and distortions and control color fringing and chromatic aberrations for better sharpness, clarity, and color accuracy. Individual elements are multicoated to resist flare and ghosting, while a nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a smooth bokeh.

Shipping from July 10, the ATX-i 11–20mm f/2.8 CF, which is available with a Canon EF-mount or Nikon F-mount, has an MSRP of $529.


Tokina ATX-i 11-20mm f/2.8 CF worldwide sales date announcement

Kenko Tokina Co., Ltd. is pleased to announce the sales release of Tokina atx-i 11-20mm F2.8 CF. The Tokina atx-i 11-20mm F2.8 CF is the third renewed long seller AT-X 11-20 F2.8 PRO DX (11-20mm f/2.8) model to fit contemporary DSLR cameras in newly launched atx-i series.

Sales will commence on July 10, 2020.

The Tokina atx-i 11-20mm F2.8 CF is designed as an ultra wide angle zoom lens for APS-C sensor DLSR cameras. It is the only f/2.8 fast ultra wide angle zoom lens for APS-C sized DSLR cameras on the current market*.

Focal length 11-20mm that covers equivalent angle of wide prime 18mm, 21mm, 24mm, 28mm lenses makes this lens attractive to be chosen after standard zoom lens or initially possessed wide angle zoom kit lens.

A constant maximum aperture of f/2.8 throughout the entire zoom range is realized to achieve great results in low light conditions, for depth of field control and easy manual shooting, while maintaining a reasonable size and weight.
