The new Tokina Cinema Vista 21mm and 29mm T1.5 lenses, which were launched today, equip cinematographers with focal lengths that are highly sought after in the industry. While the lenses give a natural perspective that flatters the features of their subjects, they also produce a delightfully clean backdrop when necessary. In addition to Super35 and larger-sized frame coverage up to and including Vista Vision, it is also appropriate for other applications.

It adds the current nine-strong set of 18mm, 25mm, 35mm, 40mm, 50mm, 65mm, 85mm, 105mm, and 135mm T1.5 high resolution (8K+) Vista prime lenses, which includes the 18mm, 25mm, 35mm, 40mm, 50mm, 65mm, 85mm, 105mm, and 135mm T1.5 high resolution (8K+) Vista prime lenses.

In terms of construction quality and optical performance, the Tokina Cinema Vista 21mm and 29mm T1.5 match the same high standards set by the Tokina Cinema Vista prime line, as well as the same high level of customization available. It retains the same form factor as the other Vista primes, with a front diameter of 114mm and weights that are comparable to the other Vista primes.

There are 18 groups and 19 elements in the Tokina Cinema Vista 21mm T1.5, whereas there are 18 groups and 18 elements in the Tokina Cinema Vista 29mm. The roundness of the apertures is ensured by the use of nine iris blades in each of the lenses. It has excellent control over its lens distortion and chromatic aberration, and it has minimum focus breathing. It also has a smooth, attractive flare and a moderate roll-off from subject to background.

Featuring a 46.7-millimeter area of definition, the Vista 21mm and 29mm T1.5 lenses are an excellent alternative for bigger sensor cameras such as the RED Monstro 8K VV and ARRI Alexa LF Mini. Additionally, the lens has a huge field of illumination that will accommodate bigger formats up to and including the Alexa 65 2:1 Open Gate. It is available in a variety of interchangeable mounts, including ARRI PL, Canon EF, Micro Four Thirds, Sony E, and ARRI LPL.

It is expected that the Tokina Cinema Vista 21mm and 29mm T1.5 will be available via Tokina Cinema USA, or your local authorized dealer, for a suggested retail price of $7,499.00 USD each.
