Tokina has been producing some great prime lenses recently, and also expanding into offering lenses for more mirrorless mounts. But the Japanese optical camera is probably best known for its wide-angle zooms. The new Tokina atx-i 11-20 mm f/2.8 CF is essentially an update of the existing Tokina AT-X 11-20mm f/2.8 Pro DX - offering a wide-angle zoom for crop-factor DSLRs. Again the lens will be available in both Canon EF and Nikon F mounts - and again marks itself from its rivals with its wide, constant f/2.8 aperture.

The lens is one of a number of new lenses on the Tokina roadmap for 2020 to help celebrate the company's 70th birthday; full details of this wide-angle zoom emerged in a report from German website
