About FíRIN series

FíRIN is a variation of Fírinne, the Old Irish word for "truth", which was coined during the Gaelic Revival in the late 19th Century. It means, "that which is real". It signifies "being true to someone or something". And it represents a promise from Tokina to photographers to help them capture the truth in their images with this revolutionary new lens.

With FíRIN, photographers can shoot with confidence, knowing that every image captured with their mirrorless cameras will be its own moment of truth.

"A fantastic macro lens, with bright constant f/2.8 aperture, superb image quality and sharpness levels even wide open which add to lens versatility, 1:1 macro magnification, packed in a beautiful, compact and lightweight body."

Chris Anagnostopoulos

About the product

Overview

The Tokina FíRIN 100mm F2.8 FE MACRO is designed to help shooting artistic photos of people, landscape or things at a very close distance, allowing to see the details that human eyes would hardly see.

It is a moderate tele macro lens with incorporated optics designed for Sony full frame E-mount mirrorless cameras. The lens is capable of life-sized (1:1) reproduction at 30cm. Due to its macro specifications the lens has extremely high resolution, low distortion and low falloff. Fast aperture f/2.8 provides excellent performance in low light conditions. Beautiful soft bokeh makes this lens an extremely attractive tool for macro, portraits, landscapes, art reproduction, commercial and general purpose shooting.

Optical performance

Zero curvature of field, impressive resolution

The Tokina FíRIN 100mm F2.8 FE MACRO optical design suppresses curvature of field down to zero while maintaining high resolution natural color reproduction across the entire image along with extremely low distortion, low falloff and perfectly controlled chromatic aberration. Multi-coating applied to optical elements effectively controls flare and ghosting.

1:1 true macro lens

The Tokina FíRIN 100mm F2.8 FE MACRO is capable of life-sized (1:1) reproduction at 30cm. This allows photographers to have a little working distance from the subject and still obtain impressive magnification. Having some working distance is important when shooting easily startled subjects such as insects.

Magnificent bokeh for portraits

The Tokina FíRIN 100mm F2.8 FE MACRO excels at shooting portraits. Due to its fast aperture and macro properties, the lens creates magnificently soft bokeh in both the background and foreground while easily keeping a comfortable distance from the model. The focal length is short enough to allow easy and natural communication with the model, creating a feeling of comfort and creativity. This, combined with the fast f/2.8 aperture, allows the lens to be used in the widest variety of shooting settings, both indoor and outdoor.

Incorporated 9 bladed diaphragm creates beautiful, almost circular-shaped background highlights up to f/5.6 with effectively surpassed longitudinal chromatic aberration.

Perfect compatibility and interaction with the camera

The Tokina FíRIN 100mm F2.8 FE MACRO performs with perfect compatibility in terms of design and form factor when attached to a Sony E-mount body.

The lens has the ability to transmit aperture, distance and other important information to the camera making this lens fully compatible with the Sony A7 series camera's MF assist functions, like manual focus adjustment in Direct Manual Focus mode, image auto enlargement function, focus peaking function and viewfinder electronic distance bar, and with in-camera 5 axis image stabilization as well.

Note: FíRIN series lenses are developed and manufactured in accordance with Sony-licensed specification.
