Tokina Cinema ATX 11-20mm T2.9 Overview

The Tokina Cinema ATX 11-20mm T2.9 Wide-Angle Zoom Lens (Sony E Mount) features a super-wide field of view and cine-style design elements. It covers Super 35mm image sensors and is a parfocal lens, holding focus throughout zoom moves. The Cinema ATX 11-20mm maintains a constant T2.9 aperture throughout its zoom range, eliminating the need for exposure compensation as you zoom in. Its durable metal housing withstands the rigors of cine production and incorporates 0.8 Mod lens gears for compatibility with FIZ (focus/iris/zoom) control systems.

Interchangeable EF, LPL, PL, MFT, and Nikon F lens mounts are available separately for swapping with the Sony E mount, expanding the lens's compatibility with additional cameras. The Tokina Cinema ATX 11-20mm incorporates low-distortion glass, and its 9-bladed iris produces attractive bokeh in out-of-focus areas. Focus (feet), iris, and zoom settings are marked on both sides of the lens barrel.

Additional cine features include a minimum focus distance of 12", 300° of focus rotation, and an industry-standard 95mm front diameter compatible with most pro-style matte boxes. An 86mm front thread provides a second filtration option especially useful for low-profile or lightweight rig configurations.

Note:
Lens mounts may be changed by the user but mounting by a lens service center is recommended to ensure accurate focus scales.

Does the e-mount and and ef-mount versions of this lens (used with metabones ef-e adapter)work equally on a Sony Fs7?
Asked by: daniel
An EF mount version of this lens when used with an EF to E-Mount adapter on the FS7 should work just as well as getting just the E-Mount version of the lens. However if possible using the E-Mount version of this lens on the FS7 would be the best route to go.

I am primarily going to be mounting this to a Fuji X-T4 if I get it. I have wondered if I should get the Canon EF mount and use the DZO adapter or get the Nikon mount and use my Fringer NF-FX mount? I plan on possibly picking up the new Catta lenses also but am finding the Pictor zooms for decent used prices to make it a "Trinity" setup.
Asked by: Ross
You should get it with the Nikon version of the Lens and use your Nikon NF-FX adapter. The DZO lenses are optimized specifically for DZO lenses.

Is vignetting apparent when using on the Red Komodo at the wider focal lengths?
Asked by: Adam
The 11-20mm has slightly less light fall off out towards the edges of frame and less vignette than the 11-16mm, especially when used at 11mm. Here is a link to a sharpness test for the Tokina Cinema ATX 11-20mm. https://vimeo.com/336503806
