Technical Details


Product Description

The Nikon mount AT-X 124 PRO DX II has a built-in AF motor drive. The motor inside the lens was loaded onto the Nikon mount specification anew. The AF operates smoothly and quietly due to a DC motor that uses a new AF control gear assembly. With the built-in motor, the lens can be used in AF mode with the Nikon D60 and D40 and other silent wave bodies. The Canon version of the lens already has a built-in AF motor and will benefit from the improved multi-coating. The optical system of original AT-X 124 PRO DX won awards for its sharpness world-wide. This design was maintained in the AT-X 124 PRO DX II and improved with the introduction of new multi-coating_ system. The new multi-coating helps reduce reflections that can cause flare and ghosting even more than in the AT-X 124 PRO DX. The AT-X 124 PRO DX II features the one-touch focus clutch mechanism. _ To use the one-touch focus clutch mechanism, move the focus ring forward, towards the front of the lens, for AF or back for MF. This allows for a fast and easy manual over-ride in difficult lighting situations. Digital single-lens reflex DX lens_ dedicated to digital SLR cameras with APS-C sized sensors.

I received my Tokina 12-24mm DXII wide angle lens very quickly. I could not wait to put it through some paces even though I was hesitant at first to try anything but Nikon lenses. I use a Nikon D90 and this lens is flawless with it. The auto focus is very quiet and responsive. I ran it through the gamut of fstops at every setting from 12mm to 24mm. My results indicate that it is a little soft wide open but quickly sharpens as you progress through the settings. At 14-15 mm seems to be very sharp. The colors are true and vibrant. I took over a hundred pictures at church, mostly outside, both in the shade and sunshine. I did not see any distortion or chromatic aberrations. If there were any, my camera must have corrected them automatically. I probably should mention I compared this lens to my Nikon 18-105mm with VR, side by side and picture for picture, at all settings. The Tokina is actually sharper at 18mm than the Nikon 18-105. Up to and including 24mm, they both were very good. This was a pleasant surprise to me and I would not hesitate to recommend this lens to anyone who might being trying to decide whether to purchase it.

I got the Tokina 12-24 f/4 DX II a few months ago. It is a well-built ultra-wide angle lens (UWA). Like all UWAs, it is not the easiest lens to learn to use -- distortion lurks in every move. If you want no distortion in a photo, you need to make sure that anything that is within a few feet of the lens is not off to the left or right of your field of view. If it is, it will be stretched wide. You need to make sure that you point the camera to the horizon point of the field of view, and don't tilt the camera up or down. If you do, the vertical lines will bend in or out. Further, you want to have significant objects up close to the lens, a dozen or so feet back, and off in the distance to give the full sense of 3D depth of field that the lens can provide. And finally, you want to know when to break these rules to invoke one or more of those distortions for artistic effect. This lens may take a lifetime to really master, but it is a lot of fun to experiment with.

The lens is quite sharp and, like all UWAs, has a very deep depth of focus -- even wide open. Its contrast and color fidelity are excellent. Some people find it a bit on the cold (blue) side, but I find it faithful to the colors that I see. If you find it too cold, the Sigma UWAs are skewed more to the red (warm) end of the spectrum. For my taste, they seem off, but YMMV. The other Tokina that many people love is the 11-16 f/2.8. It is based on this lens' design, and is similar in most ways. Its narrow zoom range was off-putting to me, as I like to choose one lens and keep it on for an entire outing if possible. The 11-16 just seemed too unremittingly wide angle to use as anything other than a specialty lens.

I can go far and wide on this lens but let me stick to the facts.
The camera is D40, had the lens for 1yr+ and we took over 200-300 pics with it. My 2 other lenses in the bag are 35/1.8 and 55-200 Nikkors. I'm shooting mostly outdoors with it - scenery, machines mostly, flowers, some candids
+ Sharpness - it's OK even at 12mm as long as you stop at f/5.6 or above. At f/4 corners are visibly soft at any legth
+- Vignetting at 12mm - there is a trace of it, but noting to die about it. Other reviewers could be pickier than me.
- Purple fringe - it's there, especially at low apertures on the edges. Maybe it's the D40 primitive (by 2013 standarts) SW, not sure. Mind your framing.
+ Autofocus, focus breathing, pre/post focus - none noticed
- Colors - 80% of the time - suck compared to 35mm prime (i.e. crank the saturation when changing lenses). But the other 20% colors could be great.
-- Exposure - usually overexposes by 0.7 - 1.0 stop; most of the time I shoot this one at -1.0. Could be a problem of my own sample and sure depends on the light angle/camera metering/focal length, but that's probably my biggest gripe with this lens.
-- Low light - forget about shooting indoors or at high ISO etc. Maybe with a better body, but with D40 not practical

Bottom line - this lens requires substantial technical and artistic skill. Composition, light position, background vs foreground, framing, time of the day, f-stop all should be accounted for. I have very few keepers with it, and most of the time it's not the lense's fault, it's mine. I pondered heavily to return it but there were no better options and I consider this lens a learning opportunity/challenge. So can't recommend it to the casual shooter who just wants great pics (in full auto the results will be dismal), but if you know your stuff and need a wide angle zoom it's not a bad lens for the price.

I just got the 12-24 II today. I tried out a few shots inside the house and was impressed by the quality/sharpness of the pictures so far.

I can say the lens build seems very solid. The rubber focus and zoom rings had a very tactile feel and a smooth & silky travel. The focusing with my D300 was very quiet. Much quieter than with my Nikkor 50mm f1.8. It was also heavier too. But what isn't compared to the tiny 50mm f1.8

The manual selection ring or "clutch" is a very cool feature and means I don't have to fumble around for the little manual switch on the camera any more. It also means I can't accidentally change the focus by brushing against the ficus ring like in some of the other lens I researched.

Overall the new version II of this lens feels like old world engineering.
