Tokina intros four new lenses

Postby marokero » Mar Sat 18, 2006 3:38 am

At a glance:

16-50mm f/2.8 DX
50-135mm f/2.8 DX
10-17mm F3.5-4.5 Fisheye DX
17-135mm F3.5-5.6 DX

http://www.tokina.co.jp/news/pie2006news.html

The whole website is in Japanese, and Babel Fish Translator was giving errors in trying to translate the page to English. :( But very interesting focal lengths, specially the 16-50 f/2.8.

16-50mm f/2.8 DX = 24-75mm
50-135mm f/2.8 DX = 75-202mm


Seems like they are makeing the top line 35mm focal lengths in what would be the equivilant APS-C focal lengths with the FOV factor. Very interesting! I wonder what pricing will be like, hopefully lower than the regular runs of 28-70s and 70-200s.

can anyone decipher which mounts these will come in? Nikon, Canon, etc. Also, what does the 'DX' mean in the Tokina world?

Try: THK Photo Products Inc. They distribute Tokina in the US. Canada has no distributor.

moon,

DX means the same as Nikon's DX lenses I believe.

Hmmm... I always thought the DX was a Digital designator. :hs

Yeah, DX means the image circle is smaller than that of a 35mm lens--meant to fit on an APS-C size imager.

Mike, I would say it will be in a Canon and Nikon mount to begin with. Probabley not Pentax, and definatley not Minolta since they are closing up shop. In the Canon mount they will be EF-S more than likely. I believe that the Tokina DX lenses can still be used on 35mm cameras they just severally vignette, I am not positive on this though. Hope this helps. :D
