OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Although CP+ is in full swing, Photokina can’t get here soon enough. Photo Rumors spotted a new full-frame camera lens from Tokina sporting the insanely popular 24-70mm focal length range. Labeled the Tokina AT-X PRO SD 24-70mm f2.8 (IF) FX, the lens will supposedly be officially announced at Photokina in September, but for now it’s making a display only showing at CP+ show in Japan.

Sadly we have yet to see the earlier rumored Tokina wide-angle 12-28mm f/4 lens for crop sensor cameras or the Tokina AT-X 70-200mm f4 PRO FX VCM-S telephoto zoom lens for full-frame DSLRs. The new Tokina 24-70mm lens will run into some heavy competition from Nikon and Canon as well as the recently released Tamron 24-70mm f2.8 SP VC. Another 24-70mm lens that’s due for a Photokina appearance is the earlier rumored Sigma 24-70mm f2 lens.
