NEW TOKINA FíRIN 20mm F2 FE MF

Tokina USA introduces the fast aperture, full-frame 20mm F/2.0 FE MF prime camera lens. This lens marks the initial offering of FiRIN, a new mirrorless lens series. This new lens series from Tokina is designed for a photography market that is rapidly adopting mirrorless camera systems as a standard. The FiRIN 20mm f/2.0 lens is a bright, wide-angle lens that is compatible with Sony E-Mount cameras.

“This is an exciting first step into the mirrorless market for Tokina,” says Kenko Tokina USA President, Yasu Suga. “The all-new design delivers a sharp edge-to-edge image and greatly reduces exposure fall-off for a crisp, clear image. The lens is manual focus with manual aperture control but transmits distance and aperture information to the lens allowing the camera to utilize the 5-axis Image Stabilization, Manual Focus Assist, and other features that require electronic lens communication. I am happy to report that our engineers in Japan are hard at work designing more lenses for the FiRIN mirrorless series; the future is bright.”

The FiRIN 20mm f/2.0 features a wide focus ring for smooth manual control, an aperture ring that can be “clicked” and “de-clicked” on demand for cinema and photo use, and electronic contacts for maximum communication with the camera. The lens will be unveiled at Photokina 2016 in Cologne, Germany. The Kenko Tokina booth is located in Hall 5.2, stand C020.
