In January 2014, Tokina will start shipping the Sony Alpha mount version of their 11-16mm f2.8 lens. The lens has been available for both Canon and Nikon mounts for a while, but it only makes sense that the third largest (or in some cases second) camera manufacturer was going to receive some support.
The lens has two Super-Low Dispersion and aspheric elements along with the snap back manual focusing ring that is on many of their other lenses.
We’re still working on reviewing more of Tokina’s lenses–but many of you already love them a lot.
Tech specs are after the jump. No word yet on pricing.
