The new Tokina AT-X 124 PRO DX II (AF 12-24 f/4 II) with a built-in AF motor drive is available in Nikon and Canon mounts. With the built-in motor, the lens can be used in AF mode with the Nikon D60 and D40 and other silent wave bodies with APS-C sized sensors. There’s a new AF control gear assembly delivering smoother and quieter autofocusing. The Canon version of the lens has a built-in AF motor and will benefit from the improved multi-coating.
The optical system of the original AT-X 124 PRO DX won awards for its sharpness world-wide. This was apparently improved in the new version. The new multi-coating helps reduce reflections that can cause flare and ghosting better than with the older lens.
The AT-X 124 PRO DX II features a one-touch focus clutch mechanism.
The lens weighs 19.0 oz. (540g).
