Tok­ina hopes Opera 50mm will sing

Amateur Photographer - - 7days -

A NEW 50mm f/1.4 lens has been re­leased by Tok­ina as part of its pre­mium Opera range. This fast prime is de­signed for full-frame Canon and Nikon DSLRs and is weath­ersealed; other key fea­tures in­clude nine aper­ture blades and 15 lens el­e­ments in nine groups, along with a 40cm min­i­mum fo­cus­ing dis­tance. A ring-shaped ul­tra­sonic mo­tor drives the AF and the Nikon ver­sion em­ploys an elec­tronic di­aphragm mech­a­nism, which is a first for Tok­ina. The Tok­ina Opera 50mm f/1.4 FF will be avail­able from Novem­ber for Canon EF and Nikon F mounts; the UK price has yet to be con­firmed, but the US price is $949.
