- All-metal focus unit offers smooth and precise autofocus
- It’s compatible with Sony’s 5-axis image stabilization, as well as Face/Eye Priority AF, Real-time Eye AF, and MF assist

The lens is available for pre-orders starting January 17 for $500 and is expected to be available worldwide early February. We’re excited to see what else Tokina has in store for this new line of mirrorless glass.
