Tokina continue to grow their E-mount lens lineup with the FiRIN 20mm F/2 FE Autofocus lens, compatible with Sony IBIS and Fast Hybrid AF.

Back in 2016 Tokina announced the FiRIN line of dedicated E-mount lenses, starting off the range with the manual focus 20mm F/2 lens. Possibly compared to the ZEISS Loxia prime lenses, the native E-mount and manual focus FiRIN seemed geared towards Sony alpha video shooters. Since then, Sony released the a7RIII with lightning fast auto focus, so it seems like a smart move for Tokina to release an AF version of the lens, which has the same optical design as the MF version.

In terms of its wide angle optical performance, the FiRIN 20mm F/2 FE AF has 2 aspherical elements and 3 super-low dispersion elements which will reduce distortion and chromatic aberration, that can be inherent in wide angle filming and photography. Tokina suggests that even at F/2, the FiRIN lens will perform with high resolution results and minimal distortion.
