You may already be familiar with Tokina SZX 400mm f/8, a super-telephoto reflex lens Tokina initially launched last year. The lens is now available in eight different mounts – but once again, not natively.
Nikon has added a new lens to its Z-mount line. The Nikkor Z 28mm f/2.8 is a compact and affordable wide-angle prime, offering you all the perks of a modern lens. But what it stands out for is its nostalgic design, as it was made to resemble the Nikon lenses we used with film SLR cameras.
Tokina has announced a new Tokina SZX SUPER TELE 400mm F8 Reflex MF lens. Yes, really. I know, it’s strange in this day and age to see a new reflex lens. For those who aren’t familiar, they work a little like certain telescopes, using internal mirrors to effectively increase the focal length of the lens without it actually having to be very long. They used to be very popular, but these days… not so much.
It’s been released for a whole bunch of different mounts (sort of), including Nikon F, Canon EF, Sony E, Fuji X and Micro Four Thirds. The lens itself appears to have a screw-on mount with a 42mm diameter and then adapters are used to mount it to the system you’re using. But I have to ask, in this day and age, why?
