Not to be outdone, Tokina plans to announce a Opera 50mm f/1.4 FF ahead of CP+. Canon shooters have been waiting a new 50mm for quite some time, I’m not sure this is what they were thinking.
You’re also going to have to wait a while to try it out, as it doesn’t look like it’s coming until September of 2018.
One neat design element of the lens, is it appears the focus ring will rotate in the direction that matches your Canon or Nikon camera.
