SZX 400mm Lens Overview

Tokina SZX SUPER TELE 400mm F8 Reflex MF is a 400mm super tele lens that adopts catadioptric type optical design with a constant f/8 aperture. The lens offers a compact alternative to standard telephoto lenses as more photographers are looking for easy-to-carry gear. 400mm f/8 reflex MF is designed keeping in mind active travel photographers seeking for outdoor landscape, wild nature or birds by providing compact and lightweight lens to be rediscovered in the new era of also compact but high-tech mirrorless cameras.


Optical Performance

Long 400mm focal length of Tokina SZX SUPER TELE 400mm F8 Reflex MF while being such a compact and lightweight is realized thanks to catadioptric optical design.

Mirror lenses are tele photo lenses that incorporate a combination of 3 lenses silvered on the outside of the glass to reflect light back and forth between the ends of the lens. This structure folds the light cutting the tube length in half. In this way the construction makes the physical size of the lens around a third of the size of a conventional lens and allows a lightweight body, because the mirrors are much lighter than the optical glass.

Lens elements inside the lens are coated with multi-layer anti-reflection coating for effective light intake and as a result, for increasing shutter speed in low light conditions.Mirrored surfaces of the lens elements incorporate high-reflectivity silvered coating and a protective antioxidant layer on the back side for a longer product lifetime.

Compact and Lightweight

The Tokina SZX SUPER TELE 400mm F8 Reflex MF is suitable for travel photography since the lens is compact and lightweight, and yet will help you to capture far objects that cannot be reached by standard zoom lenses. 

Weighing just 340g (without mount adapter) this lens can be easily packed and carried inside a pocket or small bag, suitable for travel photographers seek ing lightweight gear.ds

Macro Option

The field of view is 6°8' (by frame diagonal) and the minimum focusing distance is 1.15 meters. It gives magnification 1:2.5 to capture an object with size 6x9cm on full frame. These properties help the photographer avoid shadows while shooting close up images, and open up creative macro possibilities.

Specific Bokeh

Optical construction of the lens creates specific donut-shaped and super smooth bokeh that finds support among many artistic photographers.

Focus

Tokina SZX SUPER TELE 400mm F8 Reflex MF is equipped with wide and excellent grip focus ring that provides smooth rotation range 270°. Precise focusing could not be more easy. Thanks to high quality processed metal parts and assembling processes, the focus ring rotates smoothly, even in low temperature environments, preventing dust from being sucked inside the lens.

Super Compression 

Thanks to its long focal length Tokina SZX SUPER TELE 400mm F8 Reflex MF can create images with a super compression effect, when the background looks close and enlarged compared to the main object. This effect adds to the image enchanting atmosphere.

Versatile Mount System

Tokina SZX SUPER TELE 400mm F8 Reflex MF adopts a T-mount standard (pitch 0.75mm, thread 42mm), that allows this lens to be attached to any camera by using mount adapters.
