Manufactured with a fast responding f/2.8 aperture, the AT-X116PRODX C/AF is often the ideal solution when it comes to a lens that can be used even if there are inadequate lighting conditions around. Better yet, the lens also features the design of the AT-X 124 PRO DX lens that have won awards for lens design. The difference that this new lens has is only the shorter ranges of zoom capability. However, it is made so on purpose. This is to ensure excellent wide aperture optical quality. Users of this lens can also switch between manual and automatic focus mode very easily, with the 1-touch focus clutch mechanism making the lens very practical to use.
The Tokina AT-X 116 PRO DX is an ultra-wide angle lens with a fast f 2.3 aperture for better photography in low-light situations. Many photo journalists consider having an f/- 2.8 aperture a must for any lens in their camera bag. Based on the award-winning optical design of the AT-X 124 PRO DX (12-24mm f 4) lens, the AT-X 116 PRO DX has a slightly shorter zoom range to maintain optical quality at wide apertures. Tokina's exclusive One-touch Focus Clutch Mechanism allows the photographer to switch between AF and MF simply by snapping the focus ring forward for AF and back toward the camera to focus manually. There is no need to change the AF-MF switch on Nikon cameras and there is no second AF MF switch on the lens for Canon, everything is accomplished by the focus ring.
