Tokina Cinema AT-X 16-28mm T/3 Lens Review

Tokina 16 28mm T3 Cinema Lens EF (8)

With the recent rise of high resolution digital cinema cameras, the demand for compatible, video-friendly lenses has increased. In response, Tokina have redesigned two fo their most popular wide angle lenses for cinematic use. In this review, we'll take a look at Tokina's Cinema version of their 16-28mm f/2.8 lens. Currently available to fit Canon EF and Arri PL mount cameras, this ultra-wide angle zoom promises crisp 4K footage, has a fast T/3 aperture throughout the zoom range and costs around £4000. I assure you , this is actually quite cheap for a cinema lens, especially one that covers the 35mm frame. For the purposes of testing, we will be taking stills with the lens using a Canon EOS 5D Mark III camera body, as it is easier to judge the performance of the lens this way.
