You are welcome to try the Tokina Vista range of lenses out at our showroom in Dublin. 
The brand new Tokina Cinema Vista series of prime lenses feature high quality optical and mechanical design that focuses on the user experience and image control. The Cinema Vista primes exhibit an image circle that exceeds that of 35mm Full Frame making them an excellent choice for large format cameras.

The Cinema Vista series also benefit from a design that produces nearly zero focus breathing - a feature traditionally reserved for exotic lenses with a much higher price tag.
