Tokina has announced its latest lens, an SZ 33mm F1.2 manual prime for Fujifilm X-mount and Sony E-mount APS-C camera systems.
The lens, which offers a roughly 50mm full-frame equivalent focal length, is constructed of nine elements in seven groups, has an aperture range of F1.2 through F16, features an 11 blade aperture diaphragm, has a minimum focusing distance of 50cm (19.7") and uses a 62mm front filter thread. Tokina says the optical elements feature ‘multi-coatings,’ but doesn’t elaborate on the details of said coatings.
Both the Fujifilm X- and Sony E-mount versions feature a clickless aperture ring for smooth adjustment. Tokina says it’s also minimized focus breathing when pulling focus on the 160º focus ring, as demonstrated in the sample footage below:

Both lenses measure roughly 71mm (2.8”) diameter by 87.5mm (3.4”) long and weigh 605g (1.3lbs). Both models should be available to purchase starting today for $399, although listings don’e appear to currently be live at any retailer.
