Tokina SZ 8mm F2.8 EF-M Fisheye Features
The Tokina SZ 8mm F2.8 Fisheye lens is a compact, lightweight, fast, ultrawide prime, full-frame fisheye lens. The manual focus lens is exclusively for APS-C-sensor mirrorless cameras.
The lens is available in versions for the Fujifilm X, Sony E (APS-C) and Canon EF-M camera mounts. With an overall length of 2 inches and a weight of 9.9 ounces, its dimensions complement those of mirrorless interchangeable-lens cameras.
Furthermore, the Tokina SZ 8mm f/2.8 Fisheye is a fast f/2.8 lens that incorporates Tokina’s exclusive multi-coated optical elements for effective light intake. Consequently, the lens permits the use of increased shutter speeds in low–light conditions.
Other features include a clickless aperture ring for smooth operation during video shooting; a minimum focus distance of 3.9 inches to include close-up objects in front of a wide background; and a detachable bayonet type hood for use with full-frame mirrorless cameras to achieve a circular fisheye effect.
The Tokina SZ 8mm f/2.8 Fisheye lens will have a suggested retail price of $299.
