Tokina takes walk on the wide side
Adeal has announced the release of the Tokina AT-X 17-35mm f4 lens, designed for use with professional full-frame Nikon and Canon cameras.
The Tokina AT-X 17-35mm f4 gives photographers a flexible wide-angle option. With a focal length of 17mm at the wide side, the lens yields a spectacular 103.9 degree field of view – great for shooting in tight situations or for taking in wide expanses. This compact wide-angle zoom has a bright, constant f4 aperture for easier viewing in lower light situations and extended depth of field control , while still maintaining a reasonable size (89x94mm) and weight (600g).
Minimum aperture is f22, while minimum focussing distance is 27.9cm (11 inches). Outer diameter is 89mm.
Two Super-Low Dispersion glass elements and one aspheric glass element allow the proprietary optical design to achieve excellent contrast and sharpness as well as controlling chromatic aberration. Tokina’s exclusive One-touch Focus Clutch Mechanism allows the photographer to switch between AF and manual simply by snapping the focus ring forward or back.
Superior seals around moving parts making the lens more water-resistant to withstand the rigours of professional use.
The Tokina AT-X 17 -35mm f4 lens has an RRP of $1199, and it’s available now.
Inca Pro Variable ND filter
Adeal has also introduced a new range of Variable ND Filters to the Inca Pro range.
Suitable for both photo and video applications, the Inca Pro Variable ND Filters offer 2 to 8 stops of added density by easily rotating the outer filter ring. With excellent quality German-made Schott glass and precision processing, the Inca Pro Variable ND Filter will not produce unwanted colour casts.
For photo applications, the Inca Pro Variable ND Filter saves the hassle of carrying multiple ND filters, and eliminates the requirement for ND filter stacking. For the DSLR Videographer, the Variable ND Filter enables control of exposure and depth of field, allowing you to shoot at open apertures.
The Inca Pro Variable ND Filters are suitable for use with wide-angle lenses, and are available in sizes from 52mm to 82mm.
