Tokina has announced a new cinema lens – the 16-28mm T3.0 cine lens. It has its optical roots in the popular Tokina AT-X 16-28mm f/2.8 PRO lens. Of course, the cine version is kitted out with standard gearing for the focus and aperture rings.
Additionally, the new cine lens gets a substantially higher price tag. In Japan, it retails for ¥580,000, which is slightly less than $6,000 when converted to US dollars. That would make it close to 10x more expensive than Tokina’s standard AT-X 16-28mm f/2.8 PRO lens.
The PL-mount version of the lens should ship sometime in September, while the EF-mount option is expected to be available in November. Stay tuned for official pricing and availability.
