for my Canon 80D am looking for a wide angle fast lens. Am considering the Tokina 11-20mm f/2.8.
Am confused though as I have found online two different names with apparently the same specifications.
Tokina AT-X 11-20mm f/2.8 Pro DX
This is the most commonly found and reviewed, with a price going from 500+ EUR up.
The Tokina official site has this lens (discontinued in 2020 and replaced by the CF version for APS-C cameras)

Tokina AT-X 120 Pro DX AF 11-20mm f/2.8
I have found this naming of the product only in three shops, with a price around 360 EUR
The Tokina website apparently does not list this.
- P-MO & Glass-Molded Aspherical Elements
- Local Length: 11-20mm
- Maximum Aperture: 2.8
- Minimum Aperture: 22
- Construction E/G: 11E / 12G
- Coatings: Advanced Multi-layer
- Angle of View: 104.34 – 72.42°
- Minimum Focus Distance: 0.9 ft (0.28 m)
- Macro Ratio: 1:8.62
- Filter Size: 82mm
These are all the specifications available
I can’t find online any further information regarding the second lens. The price seems the only differentiating element. Is the second one an older version? In what is it different from the Tokina AT-X 11-20mm f/2.8 Pro DX?
