Exclusive Next Generation Tokina ELR coating

The newly developed, Tokina ELR (Extremely Low Reflection) Coating was engineered to specifically target the visible light spectrum as it enters and passes through the lens. This drastically reduces the reflection ratio when compared to traditional Tokina lens coatings. This results in dramatically reduced ghosting and flare when shooting in challenging lighting conditions especially when strong light sources are within the image.

ELR Coating
Dust & Weather Sealing

Dust & Weather Resistant Sealing

The lens employs the latest advancements in dust-resistance and weather sealing targeting 8 areas in the lens construction most vulnerable to dust and water penetration. When coupled with a dust and weather sealed DSLR camera, the lens will not let you down even in adverse weather conditions.

* The sealed construction aims to enhance the dust and weather resistant capabilities of the product but does not guarantee that the lens is completely dust repellent and waterproof.

Focus ring rotation

The directional rotation of the focus ring matches the proprietary direction of Nikon and Canon lenses.

 

Focus Ring, Silent and Precise AF Drive module

Silent and precise AF drive module

To ensure fast and accurate AF, the opera 50mm F1.4 FF incorporates a high-speed, ring-shaped ultrasonic motor for near-silent operation. This provides photographers and filmmakers a valuable tool when speed and quiet are critical features to capturing their vision.

 

Lens Hood

Hood with filter operation window

The BH-726 lens hood included with the opera 50mm F1.4 FF has a special filter window incorporated into the design. When the BH-726c window is removed from the hood the user has access to the filter allowing them to rotate polarizer or other rotation type filter.

 

About Opera Series

With the debut of 50mm F1.4 FF Tokina is launching a new series of next generation, premium full-frame lenses for high-end DSLR cameras called "opera" series. The new series is designed to perfectly match recent high-resolution full-frame DSLR cameras that demand the highest quality optical designs. Building on the award winning heritage of Tokina's AT-X line of lenses, the new opera series will offer an ever-expanding, premium line of Full-frame lenses that meet the growing demands of high-performance DSLR cameras.

Tokina Opera

In modern society the word "opera" is commonly used to indicate stage art works that combine drama, music and dance. In Italian it means work or work of art. As an omitted art genre definition opera comes from "opera musicale" that means a piece of music work. In Latin opera comes from "opus" that is still used in contemporary language meaning "great literary, artistic or intellectual work" (e.g. "magnum opus", "opera magna"). We chose the name opera for our new premium full-frame DSLR lens series with the idea that it will help the photographer in creating real "works of art".
