The Tokina Cinema 11-16mm T3.0 EF is a rehoused cinema lens designed for APS-C / Super35 cameras with the Canon EF-mount. Key features include:
- All-Metal Cinema Housing. Tokina has taken the popular Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 AT-X Pro DX-II and stripped it down to its optics. From there, it’s constructed in an all-metal housing with standard 0.8 pitch geared focus, aperture, and zoom rings. Do note this is a fully manual cinema lens that provides no electronic communication with the camera. All aperture and focus adjustments must be made manually on the lens itself, and lens information is not transferred through EXIF data.
- Wide Angle Zoom. With a focal length roughly equivalent to 18-26mm, the Tokina Cinema 11-16mm T3.0 EF is arguably one of the best wide angle zoom options. Its fast T3.0 aperture enables low light capture and subject / background separation. The image circle is optimized for APS-C and Super35 sized sensors. It does not cover full-frame sensors.
- High Quality Optics. This Cinema version features the same high quality optics as the Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 AT-X Pro DX-II, with two super-low dispersion and two aspherical elements that produce images with high contrast and sharpness.
