The Tokina ATX 116 PRO DX goes on sale in Japan soon

As we promised, we are slowly but steadily increasing our coverage of lenses. The new Tokina AT-X 116 DX PRO (11-16 f2.8 throughout) will go on sale in Japan this month for the Nikon and Canon mounts.

Details from Tokina Japan and our favorite Japanese digital camera site, digitalcamera.jp.

The price you ask? 90,000 yen plus tax, which makes it close to 95000 yen. As the computer translator says, "it is heavy" at 560g, but that's why you get f2.8 throughout. This is an "APS-C lens", so you would get the 35mm equivalent of about 17mm-24mm give or take).
