The Tokina 24-70mm F2.8 FX lens is composed of 3 glass molded aspherical elements and 3 SD super-low dispersion glass elements give maximum resolution, more even brightness to the surrounding area, and high level distortion correction. Tokina said, the inner G09 lens is non-spherical convex lens of a large diameter and is the super-low dispersion glass with the very high processing difficulty level.
