Tokina Cinema is announcing the development of their new Tokina 25-75mm T2.9 cine zoom lens. The lens maker expands their growing portfolio of cinema lenses by adding a standard zoom in between their well-known and respected wide-angle cine zooms and their 50-135mm telephoto cine zoom.
In addition, the new 25-75mm is a compact cine lens with that is 174mm long, and features industry standard 0.8 MOD cinema gears. Furthermore, the lens benefits from a relatively fast T2.9 maximum aperture opening, a 86mm filter thread, and a 95mm front diameter for compatible with a wide range of professional matte boxes and accessories.
Full-Frame Coverage with Extender
While the new 25-75mm is not able to cover Vista Vision and some Full-Frame sensors out of the box, it has been designed to cover super35+ type sensors up to 36mm image circle size.
Moreover, the lens’ 36mm image circle enables native coverage of RED Helium 8K, RED Dragon 6K, RED Monstro 6K, Alexa LF in 4K UHD.
However, when paired with the Tokina Cinema 1.6x Expander for PL or EF mount versions, the lens becomes a compact size 40-120mm T4.2 that covers Full Frame and Vista Vision 6K and 8K size sensors.
Complimentary Lens to 50-135mm and 11-20mm T2.9
The Tokina 25-75mm has been envisioned as a complimentary lens that can match the mechanical and optical properties of the popular Tokina Cinema 50-135mm T2.9 MKII and 11- 20mm T2.9 zoom lenses. Thus, the new 25-75mm lens retains optical design features similar to aforementioned two cine zooms including a 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. All lenses in these Cine Zoom series feature an interchangeable mount with PL, EF, Sony E, MFT, and Nikon F mounts support.
