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.
