The 25-75mm is designed to match the mechanical and optical properties of the popular Tokina Cinema 50-135mm T2.9 MKII and 11- 20mm T2.9 zoom lenses. The 25-75mm retains optical design features similar to the 11-20mm T2.9 and 50-135mm T2.9 MKII including parfocal design to retain focus while zooming, limited focus breathing, and low distortion.
The addition of the 25-75mm completes a 3-lens set of cinema zooms covering 11mm super wide angle to 135mm telephoto at a price of less than $12,000 USD for all three lenses. Suggested retail price for the 25-75mm T2.9 is $4999 USD and will ship in July 2021. All lenses in the series feature an interchangeable mount between PL, EF, Sony E, MFT, and Nikon F mounts.
I've used this lens, and the 11-20, on almost every shoot I've been on the last 9 months. The look is clean and crisp. The ranges are spot on. Focus breathing is essentially absent. The build quality is of course impeccable as well. What is there not to love about these lenses! Looking forward to adding the 50-135 to the set.
It is remarkable they were able to make such a clean lens with so little breathing at this price point. Beautiful optics, a compact size, and smooth mechanics for $5,000 is incredible; this lens is on par with $30,000 zooms.
There never is a perfect lens but man does this come close! Filming for a high profile company that required a highly mobile setup this lens was a beast! It gave us a lot of versatility so we didn’t have to keep swapping out lenses. The characters and look of this lens is beautiful. This lens checked off so many boxes that required us to be able to be run and gun. You won’t be disappointed one bit with this setup.
The best Tokina zoom yet.
The Tokina Cinema 25-75 is a gorgeous lens. Everything from its build to image quality is perfection.
