Tokina Cinema Vista 16-28mm T3.0 Mark II Overview

The Tokina Cinema Vista 16-28mm II T3.0 with an EF mount and focus scales marked in feet is a wide-angle zoom lens that covers full-frame sensors and is designed to provide sharp images even when recording images at 8K resolution. Featuring a parfocal design and a T3.0 aperture throughout its zoom range, the lens holds focus throughout the zoom range and does not ramp exposure as you get to the extremes of the zoom range. The lens design also reduces the breathing and image shift sometimes encountered while zooming and focusing. It uses aspherical elements and super-low dispersion glass in its optical design for optimal color correction and minimal distortion.

Sharing features with the Tokina Cinema Vista primes helps to provide a consistent look when swapping between lenses. The 9-bladed iris is shared among the lenses and produces attractive bokeh in out-of-focus areas, with naturalistic-looking out of focus highlights. The focus, iris, and zoom control rings have cine-style 0.8 Mod gears, and the focus ring features approximately 300 degrees of rotation, which matches the focus rotation on the Cinema Vista primes. The 16 to 28 zoom features a 114mm front diameter that is also in common with the Cinema Vista primes making for fewer adjustments to accessories when swapping lenses. In addition to an EF mount, the lens also has a built-in 1/4"-20 support foot that helps support the lens with the aid of an optional 1/4"-20 rod-mounted lens support (not included).

Tokina Cinema Vista 16-28mm T3.0 Mark II Reviews

Amazing Lens

By Kelly
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2019-10-03

The only thing holding this lens back is the weight, but if you're used to using a heavier setup or ok with the lens possibly being heavier than the camera, this is an incredible lens. 16-28 is a nice wider angle range and it covers full frame cameras. Crisp all the way through.

Not Parfocal

For the price and short zoom range of this lens, the fact that they lied about it being parfocal doesn't sit too well with me. That is, unless mine is just a bad one – in which case, do you want a lens from a company that's irregular on 4500 dollar lenses?

does this lens has any tripod mount capability?

does this lens has any tripod mount capability?
Asked by: Md.
This lens, like any similar cinema lens, is not normally tripod mounted. There is a 1/4-20 mounting foot but that is meant to be supported by a rod system that is attached to a camera. This provides necessary triangulated support. We strongly advise using the lens in this manner. We say this because if you attach the lens to a tripod with the foot directly and then mount a camera, ever a small one like a mirrorless, you will likely strain the lens and possibly damage it.

question

Does this lens work well with either of the Metabones Speedboosters and MFT/GH5?
Asked by: Sal
If you have an MFT mount camera you should be able to use an EF to MFT mount adapter to use this lens. Keep in mind though that this is a fully manual lens, it will not take advanrtage of the electronic communication that a Metabones Smart Adapter offers. Instead I recommend the Mitakon Zhongyi Canon EF Lens to Micro Four Thirds Camera Lens Turbo Adapter Mark II instead. It is a manual adapter.https://bhpho.to/2bG2xhx

Is the image correction rectilinear?

While the term rectilinear is not used for this lens by Tokina it does offer Aspherical Elements and Super-Low Dispersion Glass which reduces distortion and increases Optical Performance.
