Tokina delays availability of AT-X 11-16mm f/2.8 PRO DX II lens 0

Last January, Tokina announced the new AT-X 11-16mm f/2.8 PRO DX II lens, which was originally scheduled to become available in March for Nikon and July for Canon. It looks like U.S. customers will have to wait a little longer, however, as an email from a Tokina tech support confirmed that the new AT-X lens is actually going to arrive in September.

According to the email:

“The new 11-16mm Type II is not expected to reach the US shores until at least September (and then only in limited quantities).”
