Tokina announced the FíRIN 20mm F2 FE AF—its second prime lens in the premium FíRIN lens lineup for mirrorless cameras—back in February, and we got to see it in person at CP+. But it was only this month that they revealed when the lens would ship, and only earlier today that we finally know the price.

According to Tokina itself, the autofocus lens for Sony full-frame mirrorless cameras lens will begin shipping on June 1st; and according to online retailers who finally put the lens up for pre-order today, the price will be $950.

There's not much more we can say about the lens that we didn't already reveal in the announcement post and hands-on at CP+. The Fírin 20mm F2 FE AF is simply the autofocus version of Tokina's first high-end Fírin lens. The two lenses share an optical formula, and the addition of AF is simply meant to offer "more options for end-users to choose from according to the purpose and style of shooting."
