Tokina Unveils Two Wide Zoom Lenses

Tokina has unveiled two ultra-wide-angle zoom lenses as part of their new Cinema ATX line. The two lenses, the 11-16mm T3.0 and 12-28mm T3.0, are re-engineered versions of their popular AT-X 11-16mm f/2.8 and 16-28mm f/2.8 Pro FX lenses, respectively.

The 11-16mm version is available in Micro Four Thirds mount, adding to the ever growing list of MFT compatible lenses.

Both lenses feature the same optical performance as their DSLR counterparts, but feature rugged all-metal cinema housings, complete with standard 0.8 pitch lens gears for use with follow focuses, de-clicked aperture ring, and easy-to-read distance scales for focus pullers.

These are obviously not an ameture grade lenses based on their price tag; close to two grands.

The lens utilizes two aspherical and two super-low dispersion lens elements to produce sharp, high-contrast images to meet the demands of 4K, 2K, and HD video applications. A bayonet-mount, petal-style lens hood comes included.

The 16-28mm version, the Cinema ATX 16-28mm T3.0, covers not only Super 35 and APS-C sensors, but also full-frame sensors. Available in Canon EF and PL mounts, the lens is designed to fit easily alongside professional cinema lenses. Beside 0.8 pitch lens gears on the focus, aperture, and zoom rings, the lens has a standard 114mm front diameter for use with professional matte boxes.

The lens also supports LDS (Lens Data System) for displaying lens-related information on dedicated Lens Data—especially useful for remote lens operation. The lens employs three aspherical and two super-low dispersion lens elements and features a curved 9-blade aperture diaphragm for pleasing out-of-focus highlights.
