Tokina Cinema ATX 11-20mm T2.9 Overview

The Tokina Cinema ATX 11-20mm T2.9 Wide-Angle Zoom Lens (Nikon F 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, Sony E, and MFT lens mounts are available separately for swapping with the Nikon F 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.

Best Cine Wide Lens!

By Jaime J

Date: 2022-04-09

Love how well constructed is this lenses and its performance. No chromatic aberrances in its widest at 11mm. None noticeable vignettes and vertical distortion at the sides of the image. One of my wise investments! Use it with BMPCC6KPRO.

-Reparacin. Para un objetivo con zoom (incluso si es un zoom bastante corto), me impresion lo poco que respira el objetivo. A pesar de tener una gran rotacin de enfoque de 300 grados, hay una respiracin mnima al cambiar el enfoque de infinito. -distorsin El Tokina 11-20 mm T2.9 es un objetivo gran angular rectilneo, lo que significa que es capaz de mantener lneas rectas razonablemente rectas. -Color Como la mayora de los otros lentes Tokina, el 11-20 mm se inclina hacia los tonos clidos, lo que personalmente me gusta, sin embargo, esto puede no ser del agrado de todos. -Competencia En trminos de lentes de cine que cubren este rango focal en esta parada en T, realmente no hay otras opciones a menos que desee gastar $ 52,450.00 USD en la lente de zoom ultra gran angular de 9.5-18 mm T2.9 F de ARRI . La competencia ms cercana vendra de la propia lente T3 de 11-16 mm de Tokina. -Conclucion Si est buscando una lente gran angular de cine adecuada que no pese mucho, no cueste una pequea fortuna y funcione realmente bien, la Tokina Cine 11-20 mm T2.9 es muy difcil de superar. Tokina ha hecho un buen trabajo con este objetivo y, en mi opinin personal, es el mejor lente este rango focal del mercado actualmente sin duda un paso adelante con respecto a la versin T3 de 11-16 mm de la compaa. La carcasa del cine, sobre todo la calidad de construccin y la atencin al detalle, lo convierten en una lente mucho ms pulida y profesional que sera ideal para usar en cualquier nivel de produccin.

Amazing Cine gimbal lens

By Dino
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2020-08-19

The 11-20 ATX is a great wide angle geared cine lens, it matches close enough to the Tokina Vista Primes, which is nice for swapping for a lighter and smaller rig for gimbal shots inside cars and tight spaces. The added threaded filters are perfect for not needing to use a matte box to drop in ND’s saving more space and weight. The FIZ rings have the perfect amount of resistance and are butter smooth. Focus rotation from it’s closest point to infinity is about 300 degrees, so doing a smooth pull will be much easier with a remote focus unit. Lastly not a lot of distortion in its widest, and it’s almost non existent at 20.

Great Lens!

Used on my BMPCC4K and was very happy with the quality. Very wide when zoomed all the way out, and the zoom range is decent as well. Gears worked perfectly with my Tilta Nuclrus Nano also. Very high quality manufacturing, feels built like a tank!

Very nice lens

Very professional crafted lens. I use it next to my Canon cine primes. I chose this lens for more run and gun style. I do use my 14mm and 24mm Canon cn-e. This is best if you have to change a lot for instance documentary (I use Red). Its a bit cooler and sharper (don't mistake this kind of sharp with resolution sharp) than the Canon. I Like the canon better but has just different character. But matchable in post.  A con is that the aperture ring is not carved 360. So for remote focus you have to set up your motors differently.

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

The mounts are sold separately.

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.
