Quick and accurate long distance aiming at objects using tele or super tele lenses is not as simple as it seems to be. A narrow field of view makes the photographer hunt for a while until the object appears inside the frame. This waste of time might cost the photographer the perfect shot.

The Tokina Super Tele Finder Lens is a convenient accessory for photographers who practice long distance tele shooting like birds, celestial bodies, auto racing, fireworks, airplanes or animals.

The purpose of this accessory is not just to assist in aiming but even in tracking the target in a quicker and more accurate way. Suggested to use with a tele or super tele lens like the Tokina SZX SUPER TELE 400mm F8 Reflex MF and coming soon Tokina SZ SUPER TELE 500mm F8 Reflex MF.

Tokina SZ Super Tele Finder Lens emits and projects a red dot-shaped LED light onto the glass screen. Aligning the red dot with the object while looking through the finder will help you to catch the object inside the frame in a quicker and more accurate way and thus, to minimize the chance to miss the perfect shot!
