Tokina was established in 1950 as Tokyo Optical Equipment Manufacturing, changing to Tokina Optical Co Ltd in 1971 then Tokina Co Ltd in 1995. It makes photographic and CCTV lenses and optical filters, and has a strong association with Kenko and Hoya. It’s the smallest of the independent lens makers but nevertheless offers a very competitive range including some unique optics.
Tokina offers a range of ‘DX’ lenses for APS-C DSLRs as well as a couple for full frame cameras. Its small range covers the basics, with a certain emphasis on wideangle designs.
