Tokina released Tokina SZX Super Tele 400mm Reflex & 2X Extender Kit for Sony E-mount.
SZX SUPER TELE 400mm F8 Reflex MF & 2X EXTENDER KIT that allows the photographer to shoot far objects more closer. The kit includes the Tokina SZX SUPER TELE 400mm F8 Reflex MF lens and the SZ 2X EXTENDER for T-mount (TA-020).
Tokina SZX SUPER TELE 400mm F8 Reflex MF is a 400mm super tele lens that adopts catadioptric type optical design with a fixed F8 aperture. The lens offers compact alternative to standard tele photo lenses as more and more photographers are looking for easy-to-carry gear. 400mm F8 Reflex MF is designed keeping in mind active travel photographers seeking for outdoor landscape, wild nature or birds by providing compact and lightweight lens to be rediscovered in the new era of also compact but high-tech mirrorless cameras.
The Tokina SZ 2X EXTENDER for T-mount (TA-020) is an universal optical tele converter that extends the focal length of the lens 2 times. Thus, the focal length of the SZX SUPER TELE 400mm F8 Reflex MF turns into 800mm for full frame cameras 1500mm for APS-C format cameras and 2000mm for M4/3 format cameras.
The new Tokina 500mm Reflex lens is also available for preorder at B&Hphoto. Jason Vong tested it and actually likes the lens a lot:
