Superb Optical Performance and Brilliant Bokeh
Constructed with 3 lens elements moulded from Super-low Dispersion (SD) glass and 1 aspherical glass element in the rear-focus lens group. The Opera 50mm F1.4 lens form Tokina effectively suppresses chromatic aberrations and produces tack-sharp edge-to-edge images with ease.
Brilliantly smooth bokeh is achieved thanks to a 9-blade, round-shaped diaphragm. Producing naturally shaped, soft, out-of-focus bokeh to enhance your images.
Tokina’s Innovative ELR Coating
Engineered to specifically target the visible light spectrum, the newly developed Tokina ELR (Extremely Low Reflection), drastically reduces the reflection ratio when compared to traditional Tokina lens coatings. This provides heavily-reduced ghosting and flare when you’re shooting in challenging lighting conditions.
Dust and Weather Sealed
Extra peace of mind when you’re not in a studio environment with the latest advancements in dust-resistance and weather sealing that targets 8 areas in the lens construction that are typically vulnerable to dust and water penetration. Couple this technology with a weather-sealed DSLR camera and you won’t be let down, even in adverse weather conditions.
Silent and Precise AF
The Opera 50mm F1.4 has an incredibly speedy and accurate AutoFocus. Incorporating a high-speed, ring-shaped ultrasonic motor for near-silent operation, you won’t experience any annoying “hunting” with this lens. Videographers can also benefit from this near-silent AF.
In the box is the BH-726 lens hood which has a special filter window incorporated into the design. This window allows you to access the filter so you are able to rotate a polariser or other rotation type of filter without having to remove the whole lens hood.
