These are just some of the many images I collected between October and December 2016 to find out more about the characteristics of the Tokina AT-X Pro AF 28-70 f/2.6 (version 1, based on the Angenieux design) paired with the Sony FS5.
This is my new standard lens. Combined with a focal reducer the field of view feels just right on a Super35-sensor. The focus and zoom rings are very smooth and precise. The lens does not extend while zooming and feels somehow parfocal.

If you are interested in this lens you also should take a look at these videos:
- vimeo.com/196892914 (The Tokina produces some really nice lens flares)
- vimeo.com/195876457 (A simple test to find out if this lens is parfocal and how much it suffers from breathing when shifting the focus)
