The Tokina 12-28mm f/4 AT-X Pro DX is a wide-angle zoom lens specifically designed for Nikon DX-sensor DSLRs. Key features include:
- Wide Angle Zoom: With a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 18-42mm, it’s a great choice for landscape / cityscape shooters who want a zoom lens that covers wide to normal range. The f/4 aperture throughout the zoom range helps when handholding in moderately low light.
- AF / MF Clutch: This quick, one-touch operation allows for simple switching between autofocus and manual focus. A GMR (magnetic precision) sensor improves autofocus speed over previous Tokina lenses, and a SD-M (Silent Drive-Module) minimizes audible noise during autofocusing making it even better for video use.
- Built-In AF Motor: The built-in autofocus motor makes it compatible with Nikon cameras that don’t have an in-camera AF motor (D3200, D5200).
