The 16-28 f/2.8 uses a newly developed silent DC motor which enables the lens to focus more rapidly and more quietly then previous iterations. The DC motor coupled with a new GMR (Giant Magnetoresistance)  magnetic AF sensor work in conjunction with one another in order to increase AF Speed.

Product Description

Discerning professionals understand that a 16 - 28 mm f/2.8 lens is a requirement. Tokina knows that too, so they've come up with this state-of-the-art example of the breed: the new AT-X 16-28mm f/2.8 Pro FX Lens for Nikon

Tokina designed this lens specifically for full-frame (FX) sensor Nikon DSLRs (e.g. the Nikon Df). This super-wide lens contains 15 elements in 13 groups, with aspherical and SD super-low dispersion glass elements which reduce chromatic aberration and maximize resolution and clarity.

The 16-28 f/2.8 uses a newly developed silent DC motor that allows the lens to focus faster and even more quietly than its predecessors. Tokina's SD-M (Silent Drive Module) technology delivers quiet and rapid autofocusing in conjunction with the GMR (Giant Magnetoresistance) sensor. The One-Touch Focus Clutch mechanism could hardly be simpler, requiring the user merely to snap the focus ring back for manual-focusing or snap-forward for autofocus.   

There is no secondary AF/MF switch on the lens for Nikon; everything is achieved with the focus ring.

Professional 16-28mm F/2.8 Lens
    Designed for professional full frame (FX) Nikon DSLRs.
New Silent DC Motor With GMR Sensor
    The 16-28 f/2.8 uses a newly developed silent DC motor which enables the lens to focus more rapidly and more quietly then previous iterations. The DC motor coupled with a new GMR (Giant Magnetoresistance)  magnetic AF sensor work in conjunction with one another in order to increase AF Speed.
Aspherical and Super-Low Dispersion Glass Elements
    A new, 56mm-diameter, large size aspherical glass element is incorporated into the front lens group, while there are two more aspherical elements in the rear group. Three SD super-low dispersion glass elements are also incorporated within the optical design to reduce chromatic aberration, give maximum resolution, more consistent brightness and distortion correction.
One-Touch Focus Clutch
    Tokina's exclusive One-touch Focus Clutch Mechanism permits the photographer to switch between AF and MF simply by snapping the focus ring forward for AF and back for manual focusing.
