Tokina's US distributor, THK, has announced the long-awaited AT-X 16.5-135mm DX F3.5-5.6 will be available in the summer for Canon and Nikon mounts. The lens, which gives an unusually wide angle of view for its class, has regularly appeared at trade shows as far back as the P.I.E 2007 show in Japan. It gives a field of view roughly equivalent to 25-200mm in 35mm terms (dependant on system), and will be available in Nikon mount from June this year, with the Canon variant following a month later, according to THK.
