Tokina ATX124DXIIC Overview

  • 1Description

The Tokina 12-24mm f/4 AT-X 124AF Pro DX II Lens is exclusively designed for use with SLR cameras that use the smaller APS-C size sensor. This lens provides a super wide-angle zoom range, ideal for the tightest of interiors, as well as for dramatic landscape photography.

This updated "II" version benefits from improved multi-coating technology, which helps to reduce reflections that can cause flare and ghosting. The Focus Clutch Mechanism feature - a signature of Tokina PRO series lenses - provides a faster, smoother autofocus operation, with a smooth manual focus action not normally found in autofocus lenses.

Two aspherical elements are incorporated in the lens design, to correct for spherical aberrations. It also incorporates internal focusing to prevent deterioration of the optical quality at close distances and to eliminate rotation of the front barrel during focusing.

Equivalent focal length in 35mm terms when used on a digital camera is 19-38mm.

Note: NOT recommended for 35mm film or digital "full-frame" SLR cameras

Fast, ultra-wide angle zoom lens with a constant f/4 aperture
Two aspherical lens elements minimize distortion, especially at the periphery, for superior optical performance
Fast internal focusing with the one-touch Focus Clutch Mechanism
Long focus travel for easy, accurate manual focusing
The rounded diaphragm opening (9 blades) makes out-of-focus elements appear more natural

    Tokina ATX124DXIIC Reviews

    12-24mm f/4 AT-X 124AF Pro DX II Autofocus Lens for Canon Digital Cameras is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 86.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from EXACTLY what I wanted. This lens came very highly recommended by a friend. Bought it for my Canon Rebel T2i and I am absolutely in love with it. I haven't taken it off the camera once since I got it. Primary use is for capturing wide scenes of tight, hard to shoot small rooms in interior architecture and for broad, dramatic exteriors of historic buildings in all lighting situations. This lens definitely gives competition to its more expensive Canon counterparts. Then lens is a bit heavy, especially when mounted on the T2i, but it's not detrimental to its easy of use. The focus is fast and accurate, and the motor is very quiet. I'm more than delighted with my purchase.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good lens, but not perfect I used this lens extensively during a recent trip to the US Southwest. With the capability to zoom back to 12 mm (on a 7D), it gave an equivalent to just 19.2mm focal length on a 35mm. This proved to be ideal for places like Antelope Canyon, and the Mesa Arch. The focus was tack sharp, and the colors were accurate. The one area, however where the lens did exhibit a weakness was that there was noticeable Chromatic Aberration (CA). This was easily fixed in post production. Overall, if you are willing to take a hard look at your images, and fix the CA when needed, it is a terrific wide angle zoom.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought this lens again. I purchased this lens when my Tokina 12-24 wide angle lens quit working. That's right. I bought the first version seven years ago and about six months ago it stopped talking to my Canon camera bodies (10D, 40D and 7D). I really like the fit/finish/quality of the lens and the clarity of the images, and I couldn't find another lens that had the same specifications at this price point, so I bought another. Am I disappointed the first lens ONLY lasted seven years? A bit but nothing lasts forever. Obviously I'm pleased with this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yup, that's nice and wide! I was looking for the wide view and I got it. Stick a prominent subject in the foreground, get close and enjoy the perspective. It's not for everyone, but exactly what I was looking for. And I'm finding it nice and sharp, too. Great for architectural interiors...I just used it to shoot a Trump Tower apt. in Manhattan and was very pleased. Do know that if you tilt up when shooting buildings you will get some bowing in at the 12mm end...it's not a tilt-shift lens. That does become less pronounced as you head towards 24mm. Build quality feels nice and solid...a real pleasure. And it's easy to attach and detach with the white marks on the lens and a very secure clicking into place. I've got it on a 50D and the weight balance on the body is perfect. It's not light, but I like that.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Wide Angle Lens I purchased the Tokina 12-24 after much research and comparison and I was not disappointed. I have a Canon 40D and it's a great combination. I tested the Canon 10-22 also, but the Tokina was just as sharp and half the price (and felt more solid). The focus is plenty fast for what I use it for (landscape) and it's incredibly sharp. It's also built like a tank and feels very solid. While the AF/MF clutch is convenient, I find that the ring sometimes needs to be slightly rotated before I can pull it back for AF. This is only a very slight con to what is otherwise a very nice lens.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Lens I love the feel of these lens and it looks very nice. I bought it for my mother in law but got to try it out first. It is great for it's price range and should make most people very happy. It compares against the expensive Canon version well and I am happy to put the cost savings towards some great B+W filters to go with it. I would have given it a full 5 stars if the distance scale moving when manual focus is used instead of only when auto focus is used. But since I rarely use that scale - it's not a huge issue. Over all I would give it a well deserved 4.5 rating and recommend it to all but the purest who has to have name brand Canon.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific Lens and Sharp Pictures I was up in the air between the canon 10-22 and this and after trying them in the store Tokina blew me away. I researched for quite some time also the 11-16 and the 12-24 and although 11-16 has the 2.8 for my needs and after trying at the store I would rather the added zoom so went with the 12-24. I could not be happier. The pictures are amazingly sharp and although as someone mentioned some indoor shots will show the shadow from the built in lens I sometimes use a diffuser or external flash. For me the quality of the pictures bypasses that and the canon. Plus you can still buy a small flash if need be and still have spent less than buying the canon. JMO

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Lens! Can't say enought great things about this lens! Sharp right from f/4. Fast, accurate focusing. Focus noise is hardly noticable on my 7D. Minor CA wide open but not even close to being as bad as I have read in reviews. Besides, CA is a common wide angle issue regardless of brand name and is easly fixed in Photoshop or any other software. Better built that many name brand lenses that cost far more. You really won't regret buying this lens.

    question

    Will this lens auto focus on my Nikon D3000? Thanks!
    Asked by: Anonymous
    The Tokina 12-24mm f/4 for Canon is not compatible with the Nikon D3000. The Nikon version of the lens has been discontinued, and B&H has since sold out of all stock. The newer version of the lens for Nikon, the Tokina 21-28mm f/4 (TO12284DXN), would be fully compatible with the D3000 including autofocus.

    question

    WILL THIS LENS WORK ON CANON D 40 AND 5D
    Asked by: Anonymous
    The Tokina 12-24mm f/4 is designed for APS-C size sensor cameras, so you could use this lens on the 40D but not the 5D. If you are looking for a 12-24mm lens that can be used on both APS-C size sensor and full frame cameras, you could look at the Sigma 12-24mm f/4.5-5.6 lens for Canon (B&H # SI122445C).
