New 17-35mm f/4 Tokina lens offers ultra-wide views

New Tokina lens for full-frame Canon and Nikon cameras

Tokina has announced a new ultra-wideangle zoom lens for Canon and Nikon photographers.

The new AT-X 17-35mm f/4 Tokina lens is designed for full-frame Canon EOS and Nikon cameras and opens up a 103.9 degree field of view from its widest end when used at 35mm.

Weighing just 600g, the new Tokina lens also offers a bright constant f/4 aperture to enable Canon and Nikon photographers the ability to shoot in low-light conditions.

Image quality is ensured with the use of two Super-Low Dispersion glass and one aspheric glass elements for excellent contrast and sharpness, as well as chromatic aberration control, according to Kenro, which distributes Tokina lenses in the UK.

The AT-X 17-35mm Tokina lens also includes a One-touch Focus Clutch Mechanism that allows the photographer to switch between AF and MF by snapping the focus ring forward for AF and back toward the lens mount for manual focusing.
