Tokina launches Alpha mount lens (11-16mm f2.8 DX AT-X Pro) (updated)
Some good news in the world of Alpha and third-party lens manufacturers! Tokina is making available their 11-16mm f2.8 AT-X Pro DX lens for the Sony Alpha Minolta mount. As you may recall, Tokina is mostly a CaNiKoN-shop, so this is great news in terms of diversity in the marketplace! The Japanese price is in the 90K yen range, with an estimated Japanese release date of February 24. More details should become available shortly on other markets.
The CaNiKon versions are currently going for as low as $600 at B&H Photo and other well-regarded retailers.
