Well, this is an interesting one. Tokina has announced a new SZ Super Tele Finder Lens. Essentially, it mounts to your camera’s hotshoe and puts a red dot on your subject to help you more easily track it with long telephoto and super-telephoto lenses. It doesn’t actually project a dot onto the subject but provides a wider viewfinder, with a dot in the centre of it that lets you get a wider view of the scene.
Having a wider viewfinder when using telephoto and super-telephoto lenses with an extremely tiny field of view makes it easier to keep track of moving subjects. It lets you adapt to the twist and turns nature often takes as it moves. Having the dot there just helps to ensure your positioning vs what the camera’s seeing through the lens. But is this one really worth it?
