AT-X 116 PRO DX
APS-C Sized Sensor Model Only
The Tokina AT-X 116 PRO DX is an ultra-wide angle lens with a fast
f/2.8 aperture for better photography in low-light situations. Many
photojournalists consider having an f/2.8 aperture a must for any
lens in their camera bag.
Based on the award-winning optical design of the AT-X 124 PRO DX
(12-24mm f/4) lens, the AT-X 116 PRO DX has a slightly shorter zoom
range to maintain optical quality at wide apertures.
Tokina’s exclusive One-touch Focus Clutch Mechanism allows the
photographer to switch between AF and MF simply by snapping the
focus ring forward for AF and back toward the camera to focus
manually. There is no need to change the AF-MF switch on Nikon
cameras*** and there is no second AF/MF switch on the lens for
Canon, everything is accomplished by the focus ring.

TO FIT CANON • NIKON-D
APS-C Sized Sensor Model Only
Capture it all or create images with more impact. The Tokina AT-X
107 DX is Fisheye zoom lens that gives the photographer a 180º field
of view with dramatic curvature of field or “fisheye” effect. That's
wider than the human eye can see!
The AT-X 107 DX creates an entirely new view on everything from
street scenes to nature's beautiful vistas. This lens will open a new
dimension to your photography.
The front element of the AT-X 107 DX has a newly formulated WR or
“Water Repellent” optical coating on the glass. This new coating
makes marks such as spots left by water or finger-prints much
easier to clean than standard multi-coating.
The rear optical group of the lens contains 1 SD (Super-Low
Dispersion) glass element to reduce the number of elements (pieces
of glass) in the optical design in order to make the lens more
compact, light-weight and faster focusing.

APS-C Sized Sensor Model Only
The Tokina AT-X 124 PRO DX lens is Tokina’s first lens designed for
use exclusively on Canon and Nikon Digital SLR cameras having an
APS-C sized sensor.
This lens gives the Digital Photographer an ultra wide-angle zoom
lens that has the equivalent of an 18-36mm zoom range on a 35mm
film camera while maintaining a bright constant aperture of f/4.
Non-rotating 77mm filter threads mean special effect filters will not
change when the lens’ focus is changed. Tokina recommends using
HOYA PRO 1 Series low profile filters with the AT-X 124 PRO DX.
Fast internal focusing with Tokina’s One-Touch focus clutch mechanism
allows the lens to AF focus faster and switching between auto and
manual focus is as easy as snapping the focus ring back and forth.
2 sharp-cut aspherical elements accurately correct aspherical
aberration usually associated with ultra-wide angle lenses.
Bright, constant f/4 aperture allows plenty of light to enter the
camera for shooting in a wide variety of photographic situations.
Chrome plated brass mount plate and all-metal zoom unit can stand
up to regular use while advanced polycarbonate outer lens barrels
reduce the weight of the lens, making it a pleasure to carry.

terms of film. From the nature enthusiast to the portrait artist to
photojournalist, everyone will be able to appreciate the AT-X 165’s
bright F/2.8 constant aperture. This wide aperture allows for faster
shutter speeds in low-light conditions or a more shallow depth of
field for more pleasing portraits. The out of focus background from a
wide aperture setting concentrates attention on the subject giving
the photo more strength and intimacy.
Tokina’s exclusive One-touch Focus Clutch Mechanism allows
the photographer to switch between AF and MF simply by snapping

Tokina created the first 80-400mm AF lens in 1996 and when it did,
it created a whole new class of telephoto lenses. The latest lens,
the AT-X 840 D is still the smallest lens to zoom to 400mm with a
bright f/5.6 aperture. Perfect for traveling, the AT-X 840 D
has an internal focusing system which increases AF speed
and responsiveness. Further updates make this lens an
excellent traveling companion for a Canon or Nikon DIGITAL ***

The optics incorporate SD (APO) glass to give clear sharp images
and an internal flare cutting design removes unnecessary light (flare).
To further eliminate unwanted stray light and flare, Tokina always
recommends using the included lens hood for best results.

The ring can be pulled back and re-engaged for manual focusing
with just the right amount of resistance.

One-Touch Focus Clutch Mechanism
The newly improved one-touch focus clutch allows the focus to

manual focusing without an AF/MF switch or setting the body to
the AF position.
Auto Focus
Manual Focus
Internal Focus System
The two main methods of lens focusing are either the complete
straight forward movement of elements (used mainly with single focal
length lenses), or the rotation of the entire front lens barrel group
(used mainly with zoom lenses). The internal focusing system used
by Tokina moves each lens group, but does not change the overall
length of the lens - this is especially useful with telephoto designs.
The internal focusing system has a number of advantages, including:
1. Faster focusing
2. Improved handling due to fewer movements near the center of gravity
3. More compact lens designs
4. Superior use of filters as the front filter thread does not rotate

Aspherical Optics
Standard lenses are made from a combination of spherical lens elements. However, there can be problems with such lenses when light
entering at the edges of the lens may not be perfectly focused at the
same point as light entering at the center. That presents limits to
performance in wide aperture and super wide-angle lenses.
Tokina uses aspherical glass elements in many of its lenses. In
addition to correcting spherical aberration, these lenses fully correct
light quantity and distortion at the edge of the image and provide
excellent results when used in combination with floating elements.
Through technical cooperation with Hoya, Tokina has succeeded in
producing high quality molded glass elements with a greater
aspherical shape than any other lens so far. This technique is
unparalleled in its technological sophistication and excellence.
F&R Aspherical
This lens encompasses Tokina's new large diameter F&R Aspherical
molded glass elements of 50mm diameter at the front and 20mm at
the rear. These give outstanding performance with even illumination
in the corners and correction of distortion and aberration.
SD (Super Low Dispersion) Glass
Lenses with the SD mark use Super-low Dispersion glass which
minimizes the secondary spectrum caused by chromatic aberration.
Basically, these lenses use FK01 and FK02 optical materials which
gives them SD (APO) qualities. This provides excellent image quality
in telephoto lenses of 200mm or more by correcting color aberration
across the entire picture and bringing all colors into focus accurately
at the film plane.

Angle of View
The range across the film surface onto which the subject is exposed
is expressed as an angle, called the angle of view. Wide-angle
lenses with their short focal lengths have a wide angle of view, which
means the exposure range is wide. Conversely, telephoto lenses,
which have long focal lengths, have a narrow angle of view, making
the exposure range narrow. So a wide-angle lens is used to take a
wide area of a subject nearby whereas a telephoto lens is used to
take only part of a subject located further away. A single zoom lens,
meanwhile, can function as a number of lenses with different focal
lengths, enabling you to smoothly alter the angle of view and quickly
frame the shot. You can select your lens to create the effect of distance
or depth of field, or to suit the location and surrounding conditions.

Depth of Field
When you focus on a subject, there is part of the subject that is in
focus and parts in front and behind which are not in focus. This
range in which the object is seen to be sharply in focus is called the
depth of field. If the focal length is kept the same, the depth of field
gets deeper (the range in which the subject is sharp gets wider) as
the aperture is stopped down, and it gets shallower (the range
in which the subject is sharp gets narrower) as the
aperture is opened. Even when the aperture stop is the same, the
depth of field gets shallower as the subject distance gets shorter,
and deeper as the subject gets further away. Furthermore the depth
of field is deeper with a short focal length wide angle lens, and
shallower with a long focal length telephoto lens.
Perspective
Perspective is the visual effect of moving a subject which is in the
foreground closer to or further from the background. If you take
photographs with lenses of different focal length while keeping the
size of the subject in the foreground constant, the background
appears to be further away and the sense of perspective is
exaggerated with a short focal length wide angle lens. With a long
focal length telephoto lens, the background appears to be closer to
the subject and the sense of perspective is lessened. You can
greatly change the feeling of presence even with the same subject
by using this sense of perspective.
