Tokina 17-35mm F4.0 mock-up spotted at Photokina

It seems that Tokina is now in copycat mode. On the plus side, the full-frame Tokina AT-X 17-35 F4.0 PRO FX seems to be very small, similar to DX 11-16mm or 12-24mm. If the IQ is good and priced very competitively, it could attract some buyers in the already quite crowded FX ultra-wide-angle field.

Have you any idea when it will be available with the retailers and the price.Some early review will be helpful.

I'm surprised there wasn't more of a response to this thread. I could get really excited about this lens, if it's optically as good and nearly as light and inexpensive as the Tokina DX ultra wides. Thanks for posting!

I would have been interested in this lens had I not seen the 24-120 f4 samples yesterday.

This definitely will appeal for those considering 16-35 alternative.

Looks quite a bit smaller than the 16-35/4 VR. But then it doesn't have VR. Price should be a lot less.

IS doesn't add that much SIZE to a lens, just weight really. Look at the 70-200s with and without it.

but this looks even smaller than canon's version which would be interesting.
