Compatibility of Tokina AT-X 16-28mm f/2.8 PRO FX

Aug 22, 2017

Dear Tokina AT-X 16-28mm f/2.8 PRO FX lens users!

Thank you for Your continued support.

This is to inform you that Tokina AT-X 16-28mm f/2.8 PRO FX lens is not fully compatible with Canon EOS 6D Mark II DSLR camera released on August 4th 2017.

We found out that when Tokina AT-X 16-28mm f/2.8 PRO FX is used on Canon EOS 6D Mark II during the "Live View" mode activated with "Lens aberration correction" function set to "Enable", an error would occur. Glitch occurrence may also depend on lens focal length position. We suggest to set the "Lens aberration correction" function to "Disable" . 
The "Lens aberration correction" can be set to "Disable" in case Program AE (P), Shutter Priority AE (Tv), Aperture Priority AE (Av) or Manual exposure shooting mode is selected. 

Please also note that the error may also occur in case Tokina AT-X DX (APS-C) type lens are used on Canon EOS 6D Mark II camera. 

When error occurred restart camera by removing and inserting camera battery.

Should you have any requirements or questions, do not hesitate to contact your nearest authorized Tokina distributor/ dealer.

As always, we express You our gratitude for using Tokina lenses.
