    Unhappy I guess I missed it ...

    Tokina announced an AT-X 16.5-135mm f/3.5-5.6 DX compact super wide zoom lens.

    I mean ... now that is awesome! How in the heck did I miss hearing about that? Oh yeah, now I remember ... they don't make a SONY-mount, yet!

    They say November may be OUR month with Tokina, but that remains to be seen.

    "The AT-X 16.5-135 DXs optical design benefits from the latest advances in the industry. Three aspherical elements, one all glass precision-molded element and 2 compound elements yield high contrast. Additionally two Super-low Dispersion (SD) glass elements correct chromatic aberration.

    The AT-X 16.5-135 DX has a newly designed high-precision mechanical zoom cam system minimizes play and eliminates zoom creep"

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.
