  • FEBRUARY 28, 2018 - Kenko Tokina Co., Ltd. is proud to announce the new Tokina opera 50mm F1.4 FF , a premium Full Frame lens for high-end DSLR cameras.

    Overview

    With the debut of opera 50mm F1.4 FF we are launching a new series of next generation premium full-frame lenses for high-end DSLR cameras called "opera" series.

    Opera series is designed to perfectly match recent high-spec full-frame DSLR cameras, which keep requiring high quality optics to be used with. In addition to originally high-valued Tokina AT-X series, this new opera series is positioned as top premium series of full-frame size lenses and will be further expanded with other lenses of related specifications and performance.

    In modern society the word “opera” is commonly used to express general genres of stage art. In Italian it means work or work of art. As an omitted art genre definition opera comes from "opera musicale" that means a piece of music work. In Latin opera comes from "opus” and in contemporary language "magnum opus", "opera magna” still has a meaning of "great literary, artistic or intellectual work". We chose the name "opera" for a new premium full-frame DSLR lens series thinking of a lens that will help photographer in creating real "work of art".

    In modern society the word “opera” is commonly used to indicate stage art works that combine drama, music and dance. In Italian it means work or work of art.

In Latin opera comes from “opus” that is still used in contemporary language meaning “great literary, artistic or intellectual work” (e.g. “magnum opus”, “opera magna”). We chose the name opera for our new premium full-frame DSLR lens series with the idea that it will help the photographer in creating real “works of art”.
