The Tokina SZX 400mm f/8 Reflex MF – an ultra compact and extremely affordable telephoto lens – is now available for Canon RF and Nikon Z mounts, in addition to the existing Canon EF, Nikon F, Sony E, Fujifilm X and Micro Four Thirds options that were already on sale. 

If you've ever wanted a 400mm lens that fits in the palm of your hand, the Tokina SZX 400mm f/8 Reflex MF is it. And the new mount options mean that it's an intriguing native alternative to clever lenses like the Canon RF 600mm f/11 IS STM and the $11,999 Canon RF 400mm f/2.8L IS USM.
