Here's what other sites are saying:
Although the Marker Tour F12 Alpine Touring binding has left its resort-loving brothers and sisters in favor of fresh, backcountry lines, it still bears the crest and bloodline of the Marker Royal Family. For example, its EPF Extended Power Frame is found on the Duke and Baron for crazy-efficient power transmission on fatter skis. And it features the same Backcountry Technology with climbing ability that the Duke and Baron have. The hollow linkage heel, however, sheds weight for a speedy ascent, and the Triple Pivot Light toe has Teflon for reduced wear and also keeps weight at a minimum. This touring binding accommodates alpine and AT boots, so you don't need a full setup designated for both backcountry and in-resort. The Tour F12 has a lower DIN range (4-12) than the burlier Duke and Baron, but it also is lighter-weight. And with its own set of powers just right for most tourers, it's frankly getting tired of the comparison.
New for 13/14 is the Tour 12 EPF, extending the downhill skiing ability of this exceptional uphill climbing product. The addition of the Extended Power Frame (EPF) found on the Duke EPF and new Baron EPF gives Marker something totally unique to the market, a full suite of climbing-enabled bindings with unparalleled power transmission.Two sizes available:Large: sole length 305-365mm, weight 2180 gSmall: sole length 265-325mm, weight 2150 gBrakes: 110mm

The updated Tour F12 EPF binding from Marker has an Extended Power Frame to increase the binding width that transfers power from edge-to-edge for backcountry fun. The lighter weight & improved touring efficiency make getting to the sick lines much more reasonable, even thought the DIN setting is reduced to a maximum of 12. Three ascent angle settings (0/ 7/ 14).
