Compact & Lightweight

The Tokina atx-m 11-18mm F2.8 E features a lightweight (335g) and compact (overall length 74.1 mm) design to match Sony E mount mirrorless cameras. Despite the fact that this is a super wide angle lens, it is so small that it does not give a bulky feel, even when shooting with one hand.

The compactness of the Tokina atx-m 11-18mm F2.8 allows for superb integration with gimbal systems for filmmaking or vlogging.

Optical Design

The Tokina atx-m 11-18mm F2.8 incorporates a complex optical design with a well-balanced arrangement of 2 aspherical and 2 super low-dispersion (SD) glass elements to suppress chromatic aberrations and provide rich color reproduction, low distortion and low light fall-off.

LENS CONSTRUCTION MTF CHART

Optical elements including the front glass are fully multi-coated with Tokina's original blend formula to minimize ghosts and flares to an unprecedented level.

Being a super wide angle lens, the Tokina atx-m 11-18mm F2.8 performs impressive low distortion - a great feature for shooting interiors or architecture.

Fast f/2.8 aperture

The Tokina atx-m 11-18mm F2.8 features a fast f/2.8 aperture throughout the zoom range for shallower depth-of-field, and 9 blades giving a rounded diaphragm for smooth-edged bokeh in background highlights.

Short minimum focusing distance (MFD) is just 19cm at the widest end, providing advantages in creating unique wide-angle macro images with perspective effects. At an open aperture the image appears more dynamic and 3D looking with front and back bokeh.
