Tokina has just announced the official release date for the Tokina SZ 8mm f/2.8 X fisheye lens for Fuji X mount and Sony E (APS-C) mount. This lightweight, compact lenses are the third and fourth lenses to join the SZ series alongside a 500mm f/8 Super-telephoto and an SZX 400mm f/8 super-telephoto mirror lenses.

Aimed at content creators, vloggers and social media influencers, the full-field fisheye lens is an ultra-wide, manual focus prime designed specifically for APS-C Sony and Fujifilm cameras such as the Sony A6600 or the Fujifilm X-S10. Like all fisheye lenses, the emphasized perspective and unique distortion make it an excellent choice for photographers and videographers who are looking for something more creative than a standard wide-angle lens.
