This is the best 20mm lens I have seen so far. Thank you, Tokina! I also own Tokina 100mm f2.8 Macro lens, Canon mount. Evaluated on Sony A7 III camera.

Good quality and price

Is a good option considering the price, AF little noise but is ok. Sharp. Well made. Color is black matte. Lens hood difficult to use.

Excellent lens but noisy

In terms of optics, focus speed, accuracy, size, and weight, this lens gets 5 stars. The only knock against it is that the focus is loud and jittery on continuous focus. Not suitable for video if AF is important to you. Despite that, it’s one of my most used lenses on the Sony A7RIII. Smaller, fast-enough (F1.8 - F2) lenses are great for mirrorless cameras.

I shoot Travel Photography and found Tokina Firin 20mm F/2.0 a very versatile lens. Travel, Lowlight, Night, and Astrophotography enthusiasts will be very happy that this lens came about.

Excellent lens for Sony FE

Sharp wide open, excellent resolution. Comparable, comes with AF and cheaper to the Loxia 21.

Better than the Sigma 20mm 1.4!

So I went to the store to look for a wide and as always the reps there were awesome. Played with a few lenses and asked for a wide and wanted to see if they had this lens in stock as well as the Sigma 20mm 1.4. Tried both and I have to say that the lens distortion is not as noticeable on the Tokina as it was on the Sigma. If you are looking for something wide and very little to no lens distortion, this is the lens to get!

Excellent Lens

I purchased this lens switching from a Sigma 24mm F1.4 ART and I love the size and weight of this Tokina. The only complaint would be AF motor noise but I already knew that. I wouldn't recommend this lens for video unless you have off camera mic. I loved everything else on this lens from the build quality to image quality.

Worth the price

Brought this for astrophotography use. Works pretty well, and the shallow depth of field at f2.0 is fantastic. The AF motor is noisy, but the glass is pretty good for the price. Have taken some daylight shots as well and they turned out great as well. It's not a top of the line lens, but for the price and for my usage, a pretty great one.

Is this the same optical design as the manual focus version or did they make any improvements?
Asked by: Guy
The manual focus Tokina FiRIN 20mm f/2 FE MF and the autofocus version, the Tokina FiRIN 20mm f/2 FE AF, are optically identical. The obvious difference is in the body. I would say that the AF version can't be beat in its price range.
