Tokina Lens Compatibility Notice for Canon EOS R

By on

Tokina have issued a lens compatibility notice for their lenses when used with the new Canon EOS R ($2,299 at AmazonB&HAdorama) full frame mirrorless camera.

There are no known issues with general operation with Tokina lenses when used with Canon full frame mirrorless camera. But Tokina do state that the Tokina AT-X 17-35 F4 PRO FX lens has one issue about the image Cropping/Aspect ratio. This will be fixed by Tokina in a future firmware update.

Looking for the Canon EOS R availability? Due to high demand of the Canon’s full frame mirrorless camera, here is the Canon EOS R in stock tracker.

Compatibility of Tokina interchangeable lenses with the Canon EOS R

Tokina Lens Compatibility Notice for Canon EOS R

We have thoroughly tested all current Tokina interchangeable lenses (Canon EF mount) with the Canon EOS R mirrorless camera and the Canon EF-EOS R mount adapter.

The results confirm that the current Tokina lens models showed no issues in general operations, with the following exception:

  • Tokina AT-X 17-35 F4 PRO FX

Issue: the image Cropping/Aspect ratio would be fixed at “1.6x (Crop)” and cannot be set at “Full (3:2)”.

We are currently preparing a firmware to fix the issue, which will be specifically notified about in due time.

Furthermore, when using Tokina APS-C format lenses (Tokina DX lenses), in case the Cropping/Aspect ratio is set otherwise, it is necessary to reset it on “1.6x (Crop)” manually. When shooting with a different Cropping/Aspect ratio setting, vignetting is likely to occur.

For any questions about the compatibility of Tokina interchangeable lenses with Canon EOS R mirrorless cameras, please contact us via the contact form.
