The lens has a familiar focal range from 24mm to 70mm with an aperture of f/2.8 at all zoom levels. Tokina lens retains traditional design with a sturdy metal body. The lens itself measures focus distance and a quite large adjustable rubber ring. The largest aperture of the lens f/2.8, ability to capture batter stills and beautiful bokeh in low light conditions.
