Tokina has announced the new Cinema Vista Prime lens named 65mm T1.5 for ARRI PL, Canon EF, MFT, and Sony E mount. The new Tokina lens supports an 8K resolution and can focus from a distance of 27 cm for high-detail shots.
The Tokina 65mm T1.5 lens retains the same form factor as other Vista Prime Tokina lenses with a 114mm front diameter and a weight of approximately 2.46kg.
This 65mm lens is etched with focus marks in feet and shares the same form factor, lens gear position, and front barrel diameter as the other Cinema Vista prime lenses, enabling quick on-set lens changes. The 9-bladed, curved iris provides round, out-of-focus highlights for a natural-looking bokeh.
According to Tokina, distortion and chromatic aberration of the lens is well controlled. At the same time, the lens has minimal focus breathing and provides soft pleasant highlights with a smooth transition from subject to background.

The new Tokina 65mm T1.5 Cinema Vista lens is already available for pre-order on Bhphotovideo.com at a price of $ 7,499.
