Tokina Holiday Instant Savings Event: Save $100

Act now and you can save $100 on the exciting new Tokina atx-m 11-18mm f2.8 E zoom for Sony E APS-C format mirrorless cameras during Tokina’s Holiday Instant Savings Event.

During the holiday season, the most important lens in any photographer’s bag is a fast wide angle zoom. Why? Because the majority of holiday photos and videos are captured indoors, often in relatively small spaces, venues that call for a wide angle. And a high speed lens is necessary to enjoy the natural qualities of available ambient lighting instead of a harsh flash. The Tokina atx-m 11-18mm f2.8 E lens delivers exactly what Sony mirrorless users need—outstanding wide angle zoom range and a fast f2.8 aperture.  

Your price for the Tokina atx-m 11-18mm f2.8 E is just $499 after the $100 Instant Savings.

Newly engineered from the ground up, Tokina has brought the legendary, multiple award winning optical technology from the ATX 11-16mm f2.8 to mirrorless cameras.  The new Tokina atx-m 11-18mm f2.8 sets the new standard for compact, fast aperture super wide-angle lenses specifically engineered to meet the high performance requirements of today’s multi-megapixel crop-sensor (APS-C format) mirrorless cameras.

The lens is amazingly compact and light in weight at just 3.2 inches (82.7mm) long and 11.8 ounces (335g). It’s 40% lighter than the original ATX 11-16mm f2.8. It’s small and maneuverable, so  this lens an excellent choice for professionals and enthusiasts who shoot stills, create movies, use gimbals, and vloggers needing a super wide lens when talking to the camera.

High Performance
Optical construction counts 13 elements in 11 groups. At the heart of the new optical design are two aspherical elements combined with two super low-dispersion lenses that suppress chromatic aberrations, nearly eliminate coma at the edges at f2.8 and produce superior contrast and color reproduction. The high performance color fidelity means it’s an excellent choice for any type of photography including astrophotography. Because of the crop-sensor format, the 11-18mm range aligns with about 16-28mm full-frame equivalent.

Fast Aperture
The f2.8 aperture is available at all focal lengths throughout the entire 11-18mm zoom range. The f/stop does not get smaller as you zoom out. Additionally, the aperture diaphragm has nine (9) rounded blades for incredible soft bokeh in the out-of-focus areas of your image.

No Extraneous Noise During Video
Video makers will appreciate the silent ST-M focusing motor that provides fast and precise AF operation and is fully compatible with Sony’s internal camera 5-axis image stabilization, Direct Manual Focus, MF Assist Mode, Eye AF, and in-camera Optical Correction technology. Most important, the camera will not record the sound of the lens operating when you’re shooting video and recording audio with the camera’s internal microphones.
