Tokina Vista Primes whether brand new of Refreshed Stock are as good as a lens can get in my opinion and I am stoked to have Tokina as a resource.
I spoke with Ryan Avery about these Tokina Cinema primes. I was in the market for new glass and had heard wonderful things about these lenses. I bought a 40mm from Ryan to test on a RED V-Raptor and was shocked at the results - simply outstanding. Very clean image, neutral, nice focus fall-off... top-shelf for sure and a fraction of the two other brands I had been considering. Will be ordering a full set without question. If you're thinking of these lenses, talk to these folks and rent one locally to try (I didn't have that option) and you'll see how these perform. Well done Ryan and the Tokina team!
