filter threads which mean special effect filters will not change when the lens'

filters. Hoya Pro 1 digital filters are recommended to be used with Tokina Canon EOS-fit 12mm-24mm Lens.
Built in fast internal focusing with Tokina's
One-Touch focus clutch mechanism allows the lens to focus faster and switching
between auto and manual focus is as easy as snapping the focus ring back and
forth. Tokina Canon-Fit 12mm-24mmuses 2 sharp-cut aspherical lenselements which accurately correct aspherical aberration usually associated
with ultra-wide angle lenses.
The bight f4.0 constant aperture allows plenty of light to enter the camera for
shooting in a wide variety of photographic situations especially in low light
Tokina used chrome plated brass mount plate and all-metal zoom unit for this
lens. This can stand up to regular use while advanced polycarbonate outer lens
barrels reduce the weight of the lens, making it a easy to carry.

This is an excellent quality lens ideal for landscape photography. Very fast automatic focusing motors and user friendly switching between manual and automatic focusing. The filter diameter identical to 70-200 mm lenses sigma/cannon so you save on additional filters.
I have been using this lens with Cannon 350D for more than 5 years. This second lens is a replacement for a damaged one which I badly compromised lens/camera fell from my backpack on a hard surface . After the fall I have been using it the damaged lens for good 1 year before making a move for replacement.
