There is a patent for a 12-35 mm lens.

I'm 100% certain it will not share a tokina design. The only reason the 10-17 and 12-24 did, was because at the time they were sharing designs. well actually other than the 12-24 tokina were remaking pentax designed lenses. The 12-24 was a Tokina Design.

that said its certain to have WR which is what I'm waiting for and probably DC motor.....

I'm expecting photokina announcement hopefully.

12-35 would be even better for my purposes.  I am looking for a landscape lens that goes wider than my 16-50, and I would also use it as a walk about lens as I do the 16-50.  My only concern is if the IQ was as good as the Tokina 12-28.   Still, I will hold out till Photokina and see what that brings.
