Tokina unveils 21mm T1.5 and 29mm T1.5 Cinema Vista Prime Lenses

Tokina has introduced two prime lenses, the 21mm T1.5 and 29mm T1.5 Cinema Vista Prime, with Canon EF, LPL, MFT, PL, and Sony E mounts, designed to deliver sharp images even when recording images at 8K resolution. These Tokina lenses share the same form factor and front body diameter as other Tokina Cinema Vista fixed focal length lenses, making lens replacement on set a quick and efficient operation.

Both have a maximum aperture of T1.5, which is useful when shooting in low light or when you want to capture a shallow depth of field. The 9-blade aperture provides round, defocused highlights for natural bokeh. Cinema Vista Prime lenses are designed to minimize “breathing” when focusing and feature geared focus and aperture rings. Markings on both sides of the lens barrel make it readable from either side of the camera.

The Tokina lenses feature threading on the front of the lens to accommodate 112mm screw-on filters. That allows the camera operator to add filters over the lenses without taking up a filter stage in a matte box.
