Tokina Opera 16-28mm f/2.8 FF has a bite to match its Bach

Tokina has revealed the full specs of the Tokina Opera 16-28mm f/2.8 FF – the second release in its vaunted Opera line of high-definition lenses, for Canon EF and Nikon F-mount cameras. We were quite taken with the debut lens, the Tokina Opera 50mm f/1.4 FF.

The new optic, which we first saw at Photokina 2018, is inspired by the existing Tokina 16-28mm f/2.8 AT-X PRO FX lens from 2010, with which it shares the same focal range and maximum aperture.
