Tokina launched the FíRIN 20mm F2 FE MF lens for Sony E mount just prior to Photokina this year, and has announced that the lens will go on sale at the end of January. The wide-angle lens features three super-low dispersion elements alongside a pair of aspherical elements, an F2 to F22 aperture range, and a nine-blade diaphragm. In addition to full-frame Sony E mount cameras, this lens can also be used with APS-C models.
According to Tokina, its new FiRIN lens supports in-camera assist functions, and includes both manual focus up to a minimum 11-inch distance and aperture control. The lens sports a multi-layer coating for minimizing ghosting and lens flare, as well as printed distance and depth of field scales on the lens barrel.
The lens is slated for release on January 27 with a retail price of ¥108,000. Pre-orders are available through B&H Photo for $799.
