Tokina has launched two new lenses for Fuji X-mount. Tokina atx-m 33mm f/1.4 and atx-m 23mm f/1.4 are fast AF primes for APS-C models, and they should come in handy in a variety of shooting situations.
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?
Tokina has announced its new atx-i 11-20mm f/2.8 CF lens for Nikon and Canon APS-C DSLRs. As an APS-C lens, it offers a full-frame field of view equivalent to roughly that of 18-32mm on Canon and 17-30mm on Nikon and it features a fixed maximum f/2.8 aperture throughout its range.
Tokina says that despite being built for Nikon F and Canon EF, the new lens should have no problem on Nikon or Canon mirrorless bodies using the FTZ and EF-EOS-M adapters for those respective bodies.
Tokina has just announced 25-75mm T2.9, a new cine zoom lens. It will be available in five different mounts and will nicely round up the company’s line of cinema lenses.
Tokina has announced that they plan to release a number of new lenses in 2020, including an 11-20mm f/2.8 APS-C for Nikon and Canon, 35mm and 50mm f/1.8 primes for full-frame Sony, but also three f/1.4 APS-C lenses at 23mm, 33mm and 56mm for Sony E and Fuji X mount camera systems.
These might seem like somewhat odd focal length choices, but 23mm, 33mm and 56mm on a 1.5x crop equates to the field of view you’d get from the pretty standard 35mm, 50mm and 85mm lenses respectively on a full-frame body.
When the photos and specs leaked of the new Tokina 85mm f/1.8 FE lens, it was just a matter of time when the official announcement would come. And here it is: the Tokina atx-m 85mm F1.8 FE is officially out. It’s a $500 fast prime lens for full-frame Sony E cameras, the first in Tokina’s new atx-m line of mirrorless lenses.
Tokina 85mm f/1.8 FE for Sony mirrorless cameras hasn’t yet been officially announced, but thanks to a Dutch camera store, we get to take a peek before the lens is launched globally. It recently listed the latest Tokina lens for sale, so we know what it looks like along with the full specs and price.
Tokina’s line of 11-16mm f/2.8 lenses for APS-C DSLRs have been pretty regularly recommended for years. They weren’t perfect, but they were rather good for what they cost. Tokina has now announced an update to this lens, in the form of the new Tokina atx-i 11-16mm f/2.8 CF for both Nikon and Canon.
The new lens promises increased clarity and sharpness as well as greater contrast, coatings to prevent flaring and ghosting and aspherical and low dispersion elements to combat chromatic and other aberrations.
Tokina has announced their new “Opera” 16-28mm f/2.8 full frame lenses for Nikon & Canon DSLRs. Sitting at a pretty low price point compared to the Nikon and Canon alternatives, the new lens is targeted towards landscape, architectural and astrophotography uses. Of course, with a lens this short of focal length and this wide of an aperture, there are many other potential uses for it, too.
We’ve all seen spectacular views of NYC a bunch of times. However, none of them could ever match the quality of this UHD video recently posted by Phil Holland on Youtube. Using three Red 8K cameras, he ended up creating beautiful panoramas in 12K resolution. Unfortunately, Youtube can only play videos up to 8K at the moment so we can’t see its full potential for now. Regardless, this ultra high-resolution video is still such an eye-candy.
