  • Excerpt: Tokina has recently shown remarkable success in controlling distortion at ultrawide focal lengths, while keeping prices low. This new 12–28mm f/4 AT-X Pro DX wide-angle zoom for Canon and Nikon APS-C bodies ($599, street) continues that fine trend.

  • Excerpt: Handling and features An ultrawide angle 2.3x zoom lens for crop sensor Canon and Nikon cameras, which costs around £540 and sports a constant maximum aperture of f/4 and virtually silent internal focusing. On a Nikon DX camera, this zoom range provides a field of view equivalent to an 18-42mm lens used on a 35mm camera. Tokina's DX ultrawide lenses have garnered an excellent reputation, so in this review, we'll take a look at whether this lens meets expectations.

AT-X PRO DX 12-28 mm f/4

  • Excerpt: The Tokina company from Japan seems to specialize in producing wide angle devices. In the last few years they have presented two versions of the 11-16 mm f/2.8 and the 12-24 mm f/4.0 lenses. The former is a truly unique device because no company has produced an ultra wide-angle f/2.8 instrument, designed for APS-C sensors so far.

  • Excerpt: С первого взгляда объектив очень напоминает старый добрый Tokina 12-24mm , которым я уже пользуюсь больше пяти лет и который меня ещё ни разу не подвёл. А теперь вот этот новенький шикарный 12-28mm попал ко мне в Португалии , чему я был несказанно рад.

  • Conclusion: Модель отличается высоким качеством изготовления и использованных материалов, отлично справляется с геометрическими искажениями и виньетированием, превосходит предшественника по контролю над хроматическими аберрациями, не уступает основным конкурентам по резкости, точно и быстро фокусируется.

  • Summary: Ważne jest chyba jednak to, że jego ogólna ocena w porównaniu do poprzednika o parametrach 12–24 mm jest ciut lepsza. Jeśli więc dostajemy trochę lepsze osiągi niż u poprzednika, a dodatkowo 4 mm zakresu więcej, a wszystko to w takiej samej cenie, to nie powinniśmy mieć specjalnych powodów do narzekań. Tym bardziej, że osiągi Tokiny 12–28 mm i tak wypadają dobrze na tle konkurentów. Oczywiście oprócz aberracji chromatycznej, której optycy Tokiny nie potrafią (nie chcą?
  • Pros: solidna obudowa i ciekawe parametry,, bardzo dobra rozdzielczość w centrum kadru,, dobra rozdzielczość obrazu na brzegu kadru na najkrótszej ogniskowej,, prawidłowo korygowana aberracja sferyczna,, niewielki astygmatyzm,, małe winietowanie jak na tę klasę sprzętu,, cena rozsądnie dobrana do możliwości.
  • Cons: monstrualna aberracja chromatyczna,, słaba praca pod ostre światło.
