Introducing the Vista 180mm T1.9 Prime Lens!
The new Tokina Cinema Vista 180mm T1.9 lens provides cinematographers with a highly sought after focal length. The lens presents a natural perspective which flatters subjects’ faces, while rendering a beautifully smooth background when required. It is equally suitable for Super35 and larger-sized frame coverage up to Vista Vision and even beyond.

It joins the existing eleven-strong set of 18mm, 21mm, 25mm, 29mm, 35mm, 40mm, 50mm, 65mm, 85mm, 105mm, and 135mm T1.5 high resolution (8K+) Vista prime lenses.

The Tokina Cinema Vista 180mm T1.9 share the same exacting build quality and highly tuned optical performance that users have come to expect from the Vista prime range. It maintains the form factor of the other Vista primes, sharing a common 114mm front diameter and similar weights to each other.

The Tokina Cinema Vista 180mm T1.9 has an optical structure of 14 groups with 17 elements. There are nine iris blades in each to ensure the roundness of the apertures. Lens distortion and chromatic aberration are well-controlled, with minimal focus breathing, soft pleasing flare and gentle roll-off from subject to background.

With an area of definition of 46.7mm, the 180mm Vista T1.9 is an ideal choice for larger sensor cameras like the RED Monstro 8K VV and ARRI Alexa LF Mini. The lens even has an area of illumination that will cover larger formats up to Alexa 65 2:1 Open Gate. It is available in interchangeable ARRI PL, Canon EF, Micro Four Thirds, Sony E, and ARRI LPL mounts.

The Tokina Cinema 180mm Vista T1.9 is available for preorder from Tokina Cinema USA, or your local authorized dealer, at an MSRP of $17,999.00 USD. Preorders will start shipping in August 2022.
