The Tokina AT-X 124 PRO DX II 12-24mm F4is a wide-angle  zoom lens with a constant maximum aperture which can be used only on APS-C cameras  with  the Canon EF-S or the Nikon DХ bayonet mounts and cannot be used on cameras with full-frame sensors. It is different from the previous model(without index II) with a new ultra-sonic wave motor for auto-focusing of both systems and with improved coating.

The unique proprietary «One-touch focus» (FCM) function is used to switch between automatic and manual focusing of the lens. Shifting the focus ring along the lens barrel approximately 3-4 mm forward and back, you can choose manual or auto focus mode (there is a click sound heard).

In 2013 it has been replaced with the Tokina AT-X 12-28mm F4 PRO DX (model 128).

Evaluation of  Tokin designations:

  • AT-X (advanced technology extra) - the lens is designed by means of  advanced and new technologies and high-quality materials.
  • PRO - models with this designation have an aluminum coating to improve its reliability and have an ergonomic look corresponding its high quality.
  • AF for autofocus.
  • DX - for digital SRL Canon EF-S and Nikon DX  APS-C cameras only.  
  • IF - internal focusing (the lens does not extend, the front element do not rotate).
  • SD - Super Low Dispersion glass is used to minimize aberrations and increase contrast
  • AS - the use of aspherical lenses.
