Tokina announces a new AT-X 116 PRO DX

Tokina announces a new version of its wide-angle 11-16mm lens for APS-C cameras, featuring an aspherical element, an improved surface coating ,and an autofocus motor (AF-S equivalent) called SD-M (Silent Drive-Module).

Nikon D3100 and D5100 owners will be happy about this last addition because the previous version had to be be mounted on a motorized unit which isn't the case of these entry-level cameras.

In term of optical quality, this new model seems to be a very limited evolution of the Tokina AT-X 11-16mm PRO DX, so we expect this new model to be as good as its predecessor which we tested last week.

The Nikon version is announced for March 2012 for less than 900 euros, while the Canon version will follow in July.
