Tokina’s new Opera lens series has been artfully crafted to their highest optical quality standards. It’s designed to pair perfectly with modern high-resolution full frame DSLR cameras. The “Opera” moniker is a nod to the classical definition of the word meaning ‘work of art’. Coincidentally, that’s what this lens will help you create; your next masterpiece. The 50mm f/1.4 lens combines a popular, natural looking focal length with a wide aperture to give you incredible creative control in almost any scenario. The autofocus is fast, quiet, and accurate to help you capture your vision without a second thought. Weather resistant sealing also gives you peace of mind, knowing if it starts to rain, you can stay out just that little bit longer in search of the perfect shot.

Made for Full Frame Cameras

The Tokina Opera 50mm F1.4 FF lens has been designed for today’s high-resolution full frame DSLR cameras. Made to Tokina’s high standards of optical quality, this premium lens incorporates their latest technological advancements to give you the best, most reliable performance yet.

Versatile 50mm Focal Length

One of the most popular focal lengths out there, the 50mm lens gives you a wonderfully natural looking view, like that of the human eye. This makes framing and composing your images a very intuitive experience. It’s a very versatile focal length that works well for portraits and close-ups.

Wide and Bright F1.4 Aperture

The wide F/1.4 aperture provides beautiful depth of field effects and control. You can shoot shallow, putting all the focus on your subject, or stop down the aperture for a ‘bigger picture’ look and feel. It also gives you better performance in lowlight, great when working in challenging lighting situations.

Fast, Accurate Autofocus System

Made with ring-shaped ultra-sonic motor, the Tokina Opera lens offers high-speed autofocus that’s accurate and almost completely silent. This makes it ideal for use in video applications, minimising the chance that your microphone can pick up the sound of lens operations. There’s also a convenient switch on the lens to let you go from auto to manual focus for fine-tuning at your fingertips.

15 Elements in 9 Groups

The lens optical construction is formed from 15 elements arranged in 9 groups to provide superior quality image results with fine details. 3 Super-Low Dispersion elements help control chromatic aberrations, while an Aspherical element reduces distortion. This results in photos with excellent colour reproduction, contrast, and sharpness right across the frame.

Anti-Reflective Lens Coatings

Tokina has applied their newly developed ELR (Extremely Low Reflection) coating to the Opera lens series. Designed to direct the visible light spectrum as it enters the lens, it helps reduce reflections, ghosting and flare. This makes a huge difference when working in or around strong light sources.

Dust and Weather Resistant Design

The Tokina 50 mm f/1.4 Full Frame Opera lens has targeted weather sealing applied to 8 key areas of the lens. When paired with a similarly weather sealed camera body, the lens gives you robust and reliable performance even when the weather does something unexpected, so you can keep going until you capture your perfect shot.
