    No price and release dates?
    However: nice idea the 12-28, but I guess at this point everybody has a wide-zoom (10-20 or 10-24, or 12-24, etc.) so well…
    As for the 70-200: it really has to be optically good, and much cheaper in price than Canon and Nikon equivalents… Let’s see…

      Hope it’s true. But i’m afraid the price will be around 1000$

        It should be a little less. I think you can get that great 16-28 for less than that. I’m looking forward to seeing about the quality.

      You can expect the price for this well featured 70-200mm to be in range with other third-party lens makers, like Tamron and Sigma, so between 800 and 1000 dollars is my guess.

      I preferable buy lenses which are specifically made for the brand, in my case Nikon. But Tokina is one of the makers I highly respect due to their excellent build and good optics they use. Have to say that their production shows some sample differences (personal experience)

        Well, at least in Italy the Sigma 70-200 / 2.8 goes for 1150 euros circa (I guess in the States the price is the same, but in dollars). The difference between 2.8 and 4 is significant enough. I don’t know how they are going to price the lens, by anything closer enough to that sigma price would be a marketing failure. Yes 4 is smaller than 2.8, hence more portable, but well…

    What does the 12-28 bring that the 12-24 does not, besides the obvious?

    I love my 12-24 and will not be giving it up.
