Tokina Cinema just announced the introduction of the 25-75mm T2.9 cinema lens. This new Tokina lens seems to be small in size and built to be a true cinema lens. It features a compact 174mm overall length, industry-standard 0.8 MOD cinema gears, T2.9 iris, and 86mm filter thread, and 95mm front diameter for standard cinema accessories.
The new Tokina 25-75mm T2.9 is designed to cover super35+ type sensors up to 36mm image circle size. The larger 36mm image circle enables native coverage of RED Helium 8K, RED Dragon 6K, RED Monstro 6K, Alexa LF in 4K UHD, as well as popular cinema and mirrorless cameras from Canon, Blackmagic Design, and Panasonic in 4K DCI or 4K UHD.
The 25-75 cinema lens matched the mechanical and optical properties of the popular Tokina Cinema 50-135mm T2.9 MKII and 11- 20mm T2.9 zoom lenses. The quality matching throughout the zoom lens line-up includes a parfocal design to maintain focus while zooming, limited focus breathing, and low distortion.
The addition of the 25-75mm completes a 3-lens set of cinema zooms covering 11mm super-wide angles to 135mm telephoto at a price of less than $12,000 for all three lenses which is incredibly competitive for a cinema lens line-up
