6 March 2020

Celebrating its 70th anniversary this year, Tokina has released its 2020 lens lineup roadmap.

The company had originally expected to unveil its plans at CP+ 2020, which was scheduled to open last month in Yokohama, Japan. But the event was cancelled in the wake of the coronavirus threat.

The text of Tokina's statement follows:

Tokina New Lenses 2020 Line-Up Development Announcement

This year we celebrate the 70th anniversary of Tokina brand. In May 1950 Tokyo Koki Manufacturing Co. was established in Shinjuku District, Tokyo, as an optical products manufacturer and started designing and manufacturing Tokina brand lenses. During this long period Tokina has created a great legacy.

We are happy to introduce you to our new Tokina 2020 line-up, which was originally planned to be presented at the biggest annual Asian camera and imaging photo show CP+ 2020 (Yokohama, Japan). Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, the show was canceled.

We couldn't accept the loss of this great chance. Therefore, in commemoration of the 70th anniversary, we officially announce Tokina new lens line-up which we intend to release in 2020 year.
