The new Tokina AT-X 14-20mm f/2 PRO DX lens is now available for pre-order with a solid price tag of $899 and should begin shipping in February.
Rivaling the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 in the “wide & bright” category, the new lens is the first Tokina zoom lens with a max f/2 aperture. It is constructed of 13 lens elements in 11 groups and features a 9-blade aperture and an 82mm filter size. Check it out here at B&H Photo.
