Tokina 11-16mm AT-X 116 Pro DX II

New Gear: 11-16mm Tokina AT-X 116 Pro DX II

An update of the already popular 11-16mm from Tokina, the DX II packs a focussing motor so it'll work with all Nikon bodies.

Tokina has just announced an updated version of their well regarded 11-16mm Pro DX, one which brings more functionality to more camera bodies. Dubbed the Tokina AT-X 116 Pro DX II, the new lens has only officially been announced in Japan, but shouldn't be too long before it heads to western markets. For now, it appears to be for Canon and Nikon APS-C cameras, and the big change is that it comes packing  a 'Silent Drive-Module' (SD-M) focus motor. That's right, if you have a Nikon SLR without a built-in focusing motor, then you can still use AF on this new Tokina lens. It also features new coatings, and faster autofocus.

The Japanese announcement pegs the Nikon version of the lens is set to launch in March, and the Canon in July, and DPReview's USA contact says April and August respectively. Its predecessor was also available for a Sony mount, so we'll see if Tokina goes that way with the new one, too.

The big talking point on this lens is the price. With an announced sticker of a whopping  ¥90,000 (almost $1200) that's putting it into very high-end territory. In fact, the original DX lens is going forjust $609 with an MIR. While that is an extremely high asking price, it's the same as the official list cost of the original, so hopefully the new one will drop to a similar level quickly.

The Most Amazing High Definition Image of Earth Ever,' Says NASA

Published on 26/01/12 in the section of Publications

By viewAt.org Team

NASA has released a new Blue Marble image, showing the United States of America. According to them, it's the "most amazing, highest resolution image of Earth ever." Blue Marble 2012 bests the 2010 edition and the original one.

The original one—the default background image in the iPhone—was 2048 x 2048 and was made combining different images. The 2010 edition was created with data from NASA's Terra satellite. But Blue Marble 2012 uses the latest data from NASA's newest Earth-observing satellite: Suomi NPP. It's made from several passes taken on January 4, 2012 using the satellite's Visible Infrared Imager Radiometer Suite instrument (VIIRS).

You can download it at a whooping 8000 x 8000 pixels. The detail at that resolution is amazing, but I recommend 1024 x 1024 for all your tablet, phone and computer background needs. [NASA Goddard Flickr]
