New Tokina 16-28mm f2.8 announced
Posted 23 February 2010 - 01:50 AM
Apparently aimed at full-frame slrs, but not sure if it's the long-awaited full-frame fisheye zoom (I guess probably not)- no further details available.

The focal length is about right for a fisheye (and very similar to the old Pentax 17-28mm FF fisheye zoom, which I think was made by Tokina). But sadly that hood is too long for a fisheye! It is a rectilinear.
How I would love to be wrong, though!

At the moment the only thing certain is that Tokina is making a Tokina SD 16-28mm F2.8 (IF) FX AT-X PRO with a focal length of 16 to 28mm for FX, price Unknown, availability unknown, fisheye or rectilinear not certain, only speculation as the lens that was shown at PMA was only mock up.
Surprising nothing on either Nikon Rumors - http://nikonrumors.com or Photo Rumors - http://photorumors.com except something about a new 14mm from Samyang.
We will just have to wait and see.
Damm! I hate waiting

My Nikon 16-35 /4 VR was delivered yesterday, but I'd be interested in how these compare, and am glad to see more full frame rectilinear lenses with modern designs.
