The Tokina Opera 16-28mm f/2.8

If you're in the market for a wide-angle zoom lens for your DSLR, the Tokina Opera 16-28mm f/2.8 is the perfect choice. Not only is it incredibly sharp, but it's also super bright. With its versatile zoom design, you'll have better control over composition. This ultra-wide lens is designed for full frame high resolution image sensors and top-end DSLR cameras, and Tokina have worked hard to ensure its optical quality and near silent autofocus performance.

Ultra-wide Zoom Lens

Flexibility is key for professional photographers, which is exactly where the Tokina Opera 16-28mm excels, offering a super versatile focal range of 16-28mm suitable for everything from landscapes to architecture and astrophotography. Being able to zoom to adjust the frame means you can capture a range of different looks with just one lens.

Constant f/2.8 Aperture

There are few things more frustrating that a lens that stops down as you re-frame a shot, which is why Tokina designed the lens with a constant aperture that delivers the same brightness at any focal length. The bright f/2.8 aperture ensures the maximum amount of light can be captured, especially useful for low-light and astrophotography.

Uncompromising Optics

Tokina haven’t pulled any punches with the Opera series and the 16-28mm is no exception. Its sophisticated optical design uses 15 elements arranged in 13 groups which use 3 low-dispersion elements and a large aspherical P-MO element, which work together to deliver excellent image results with an ultra-high resolution.

Lens Coatings and Integrated Hood

Designed to reduce flaring and ghosting, the elements are treated with a multi-coating that not only increases contrast but also improves colour rendition. As is normal with ultra-wide angle lenses the bulbous front element makes it tricky to add filters to the front, which is why Tokina added a built-in petal hood to protect the front element.

Silent AF

Almost as important as image quality in today’s industry is reliable autofocus performance. Tokina have pioneered an AF system in the 16-28mm that uses a new GMR magnetic sensor to deliver high-speed accurate results. Combined with an internal focusing design, this ensures that the lens is one of the fastest on the market.

One-Touch Focus Clutch

An innovative focus clutch mechanism provides a quick and easy way to switch between auto and manual focus modes by simply pulling or pushing the focus ring. This full manual focus control over your composition ensures you are always in control.

Full Frame Lens

The Opera 16-28 mm f/2.8 lens by Tokina is an excellent premium lens option for DSLR shooters who shoot with high-end full frame camera. A versatile 16-28mm focal length, ultra-bright constant f/2.8 aperture and an optical construction that emphasises image quality and performance over anything else make it a perfect lens for the more discerning photographer.
