Product Description


The Tokina 12-24mm f/4 AT-X 124AF Pro DX II Lens is exclusively designed for use with SLR cameras that use the smaller APS-C size sensor. This lens provides a super wide-angle zoom range, ideal for the tightest of interiors, as well as for dramatic landscape photography.

This updated "II" version benefits from improved multi-coating technology, which helps to reduce reflections that can cause flare and ghosting. The Focus Clutch Mechanism feature - a signature of Tokina PRO series lenses - provides a faster, smoother autofocus operation, with a smooth manual focus action not normally found in autofocus lenses.

Two aspherical elements are incorporated in the lens design, to correct for spherical aberrations. It also incorporates internal focusing to prevent deterioration of the optical quality at close distances and to eliminate rotation of the front barrel during focusing.

FEATURES:
  • Fast, ultra-wide angle zoom lens with a constant f/4 aperture
  • Two aspherical lens elements minimize distortion, especially at the periphery, for superior optical performance
  • Fast internal focusing with the one-touch Focus Clutch Mechanism
  • Long focus travel for easy, accurate manual focusing
  • The rounded diaphragm opening (9 blades) makes out-of-focus elements appear more natural

Customer Reviews

This lens produces awesome quality images!
Michael M. Wong
I guess this is something that could happen to any lens, and I've taken so many great pictures with it that I can't say any other bad thing about it.

It is great for outdoor landscape and architecture photography in which this lens was made for.

Please let me be brief in my conclusions concerning the TOKINA 12-24MM F/4...

This is the first TOKINA piece of glass that I have owned. My first impression was that in appearance it looks very much like a Nikon. It's handsome in appearance and build quality appears to be superb. I immediately got the feeling of holding a precision instrument and I like that. While some plastic is used, it can't be much judging by the weight of this lens, but it is not overly heavy. Fit-up when mounted to the camera (40D) is as good as anything I have from Canon. I found the zoom and manual focus rings to operate smoothly.

As far as operation goes...this lens has no switch to change from manual to auto focus, you simply pull the focus ring back and manual focus engages without having to hunt for any precise spot. Return to Auto by pushing forward. It snaps smartly in and out. I like this arrangement on a wide angle because when using auto-focus on a lens with a wide field of view, sometimes your auto-focus will lock in on an area other than your intended subject and when this happens you can quickly and smoothly make the transition to manual and adjust without fumbling for switches or removing your eye from the viewfinder. I might add that this lens seems very easy to focus accurately in manual and I have found it a pleasure to use and on occasions I just left it in manual for the entire shoot. I really have no issues with the auto-focus. It is spot on at least 95% of the time and gets there quickly and smoothly. Low light performance may be a bit more sluggish but I think focus performance on anyone's lens in low light is dependent upon a lot of variables. Speaking of low light, I have not found the F/4.

All my research was on the earlier model as no one had tested ll seperately but was told that optics were the same but with better coating. This is one great lens,no CA problem,sharp,built like a tank and uses a standard tiffin 77mm uv filter [$11.95] without vingetting. It does not have a flare problem when used with normal care [don't put the sun in the frame, shade with your hat when needed]. An excellent lens for the money, an excellent lens at any price. Also came with it's own lens shade. GG

Before I bought this lens for my Canon 40D,I informed myself and read reviews on all wide angle lenses not in the astronomical prize range.After having used it now for a couple of weeks I find it quite outstanding.The build quality is first class it feels as smooth and solid as my 24-104mm L lens[which is saying a lot].The colors and image quality too leave nothing to be desired.So I am very happy with it and can only recommend it.

Prior to purchasing this lens I was torn between the Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 & the extra range of their 12-24mm. The idea of having a f/2.8 vs this f/4 was certainly appealing, but being limited to only a 5mm zoom range caused me some concern. Either lens, while great in their own right, have their individual physical limitations.

After mulling the options for a month or so, I chose to give up the 1mm wide & gain the 24mm range on the long end. There's no doubt that the Tokina 11-16 is a very fine lens, but this lens is amazingly sharp, solidly built and produces exquisite images on my Canon 60D. I'm certainly glad I opted for this lens & so far haven't missed the 1 extra stop. Under most circumstances this works well as a walkaround lens, but I wouldn't feel that way if not for the 12-24mm range. As terrific as this lens is, I can't imagine how the even more highly rated 11-16 could outperform this beauty. Fast accurate AF, beautiful saturation & very nice contrast...this truly is a great lens.

I bought this lens over 2 years ago. It was good for the price. Nothing spectacular but still good. I am very very very gentle with my camera equipment, this lens has never fallen, bounced around, or been mistreated in any way. So I was very supprised when I go to pick up my camera the other day and the mount and portion of the auto focus system seperates from the rest of the lens. Apon close inspection it seems the "metal" mounts inside the lens just broke off, ripping apart wires and AF electonics. I might understand if I had been picking up the heavy camera with the lens for a while but I never do that. Due to the warranty ending 2 years after purchase date I am left with a piece of crap, non functioning lens. The repair bill is huge and not even worth it. I cant say that you should not buy this but if you do BE CAREFULL! Tokina quality is not always the best.

This is my first ultra wide angle lens and the purchase was way overdue. I bought this lens because I needed a wide angle lens
for Real Estate and landscape photos. This lens has far exceeded my expectations it is fast and the images are very crisp and clear

I bought and returned the Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 lens, then I bought a Tokina II 12-24 f/4 and became my 2nd walk-around lens
together with my Canon 24-105mm L f/4 lens. This lens provided me the UWA lens with range that I wanted. I am like the quality
overall, but this lens is having a hard time focusing indoor on a low dimmed lighted room w/o flash compared to my Canon 24-105mm L f/4
lens. It is great for outdoor landscape and architecture photography in which this lens was made for.
