Tokina adds two new focal lengths to its Vista Prime cinema lens range, giving large-format cinematographers more options to get the right shot.
Let’s dig deeper to discover how these new lenses will help full-frame compositions.
Large-format cinematography is still fairly new when compared to the long history of cinema. Only recently has it become a staple in film and television, with the rise of video-capable DSLRs and mirrorless cameras, as well as the return of VistaVision.
Tokina already has an impressive range of lenses in its Vista Prime product line. They just announced two new additions, the 21mm T1.5 and 29mm T1.5.

The current Vista Prime lens range includes the 18mm T1.5, 25mm T1.5, 35mm T1.5, 40mm T1.5, 50mm T1.5, 65mm T1.5, 85mm T1.5, 105mm T1.5 and 135mm T1.5.
With the addition of the 21mm and 29mm T1.5, the complete set sits at a whopping 11 lenses. This gives incredible power to cinematographers shooting on large-format cameras such as the RED V-Raptor and Monstro, the ARRI Alexa Mini LF, Canon C500 mkII, Sony VENICE, and FX9.
