Tokina FiRIN 100mm f/2.8 Macro FE lens announced for Sony E-mount

Sony shooters seeking a new option for portraits and macro now have a new option, with the announcement of the Tokina FiRIN 100mm F2.8 FE Macro (or "FíRIN", as the company lists it) for Sony E-mount cameras. 

This versatile mid-range optic will challenge the Sony FE 90mm f/2.8 Macro G OSS as the best Sony lens for macro photography, but its fast f/2.8 aperture also makes it a solid option for portrait shots, with nine aperture blades producing soft beautiful bokeh and great background separation.
