The Tokina Cinema 100mm T2.9 macro is a true 35mm, full-frame, 1:1 macro close-up lens. Sporting a compact design, the lens achieves maximum magnification at a working distance of 11.8 inches (0.3 meters). This allows enough space for lighting, the camera operator, and the subject to work comfortably.
The 100mm macro’s optical design is easily resolves 8K and beyond resolution, super sharp, high contrast, and exhibits very low distortion or chromatic aberrations. Focus breathing is incredibly well controlled and the lens has a 9-blade, curved iris for beautiful bokeh and precise exposure control. The wide T-stop range, from T2.9 to T32, allows for maximum control of exposure and depth-of-field which is critical when working so close to your subject.
In love with this Tokina 100mm Macro. The build is rock solid, very sharp for tabletop work and minimal focus breathing. Beautiful bokeh as well. Definitely my go to for macro shoots.
This Tokina 100mm Macro is always in my kit especially on food shoots where closeups are mandatory. The bokeh is creamy and the lens itself is solidly built. Highly recommend.
