(From Tokina lens literature)

Overview
The 50mm F1.4 FF is the debut premium lens in Tokina's new opera series for high-performance full-frame DSLR cameras. The lens incorporates Tokina's latest advancements in optical engineering and electronic design to meet the demands of today's DSLR technology. With advanced features like ring-shaped ultrasonic motors for fast and quiet operation, Tokina's new ELR lens coating technology, and advanced weather sealing technology, the new 50mm F1.4 FF opera lens will be a go-to lens in many camera bags.

Superior optical performance and Natural Bokeh
In order to effectively suppress chromatic aberrations and deliver sharp edge-to-edge images at all apertures, the opera 50mm F1.4 FF optical construction includes 3 lens elements molded from SD (Super-low Dispersion) glass and one aspherical glass element in the rear-focus lens group. The lens incorporates a 9-blade, round-shaped diaphragm for naturally beautiful bokeh. Tokina also incorporates an electric diaphragm specific to the Nikon mount for more accurate and precise aperture control. Fast and quite AF along with superior optical performance at all apertures and focus points makes this lens suitable for a variety of photographic genres and scenes.

Exclusive Next Generation Tokina ELR coating
The newly developed, Tokina ELR (Extremely Low Reflection) Coating was engineered to specifically target the visible light spectrum as it enters and passes through the lens. This drastically reduces the reflection ratio when compared to traditional Tokina lens coatings. This results in dramatically reduced ghosting and flare when shooting in challenging lighting conditions especially when strong light sources are within the image.

Dust & Weather Resistant Sealing
The lens employs the latest advancements in dust-resistance and weather sealing targeting 8 areas in the lens construction most vulnerable to dust and water penetration. When coupled with a dust and weather sealed DSLR camera, the lens will not let you down even in adverse weather conditions.

* The sealed construction aims to enhance the dust and weather resistant capabilities of the product but does not guarantee that the lens is completely dust repellent and waterproof.

Focus ring rotation
The directional rotation of the focus ring matches the proprietary direction of Nikon and Canon lenses.

Silent and precise AF drive module
To ensure fast and accurate AF, the opera 50mm F1.4 FF incorporates a high-speed, ring-shaped ultrasonic motor for near-silent operation. This provides photographers and filmmakers a valuable tool when speed and quiet are critical features to capturing their vision.
