The Tokina's Opera series is designed to perfectly match recent high-resolution full-frame DSLR cameras that demand the highest quality optical designs. They will offer an ever-expanding, premium line of Full-frame lenses that meet the growing demands of high-performance DSLR cameras.
The Tokina opera 16-28mm F2.8 FF incorporates a complex optical design with 15 elements in 13 groups, 3 of which are of aspherical type including large aspherical P-MO element and 3 are glass molded Low-Dispersion (SD) elements for effective suppression of chromatic and spherical aberrations. This optical design performs just optimal resolution at the aperture wide open that greatly increases by stepping down to f/4 and narrower. To make the lens suitable for landscape shooting and BW photography, engineers made maximum efforts to realize high level of contrast and rich colour gradation in the image.
The "bulb-like" shape front element cannot allow to attach photographic filter, but greatly contributes to low distortion and low light falloff. Superior colour rendering will allow the photographer to capture the nature scenery in rich blue colours without using C-PL filter, and the in-built hood petals will serve as a protection from accidental damage of the front element.
