Tokina Announces FiRIN 100mm f/2.8 FE Macro Lens for Sony E-Mount

Tokina FiRIN 100mm f/2.8 FE Macro Lens for Sony E-Mount

Tokina FiRIN 100mm f/2.8 FE Macro Lens for Sony E-Mount ($599 from B&H Photo | Adorama) is a short telephoto macro lens, offering a life-size, 1:1 maximum magnification along with an 11.8″ minimum focusing distance. This lens uses a flat-field optical design to yield realistic rendering, void of field curvature, as well as high sharpness and clarity throughout the focusing range. Multi-layer coating has been applied to reduce lens flare and ghosting for increased contrast and improved color fidelity.

Autofocus design offers quick and accurate focusing control, and full-time manual focus override allows fine-tuning the focus position for critical applications. Additionally, electronic contacts are integrated into the mount design to permit seamless communication of distance and aperture information to the camera body in order to support the use of focusing aids, in-camera image stabilization, and an EVF distance scale

  1. i know ‘why’ questions are always difficult to answer but all macros seem to be f2.8 and there’s not a race among lensmakers to get down to f1.4 or less

    thanks for your insights

    1. Probably because the main goal of a macro lens is resolution-not speed. What’s the point of a 1.4 macro if you have to stop down to F8 for optimal sharpness?

  2. i guess i was thinking more of bokeh and shallow depth of field

    maybe i should look at the sony 85 mm 1.4

    thank you
