    I'm looking for a compact cine zoom for my underwater work. I'd like one who could cover 8K VV.
    I've been working with the CZ 15-30 but when it comes to handheld shot just above the water (like surfing), it's way too heavy.
    So I've been looking more and more at the Tokina Vista 16-28mm but also the Sigma FF 24-35mm.
    I can't find any in depth review about the first one and there's none to rent around me.
    Any experience, thoughts, advice, etc... Regarding that lens (and the Sigma FF)?

    We've been using the Canon 16-35mm L III and we find it way above the Sigma 18-35 which had an awful CA... It's full frame, has almost no CA and a pleasing look. But it's subjective ;-)

    I shot with that lens, really good still zoom but here I’m looking for a proper cine zoom.
    The sigma one mentioned in my first post is not the 18-35 but the 24-35 which covers 8K VV.

    Hey Vincent,
    Ive used the Sigma 24-35 a fair amount on monstro... I like it but I always feel I want the option to go wider. I am another fan of the 16-35 as its sharp and light. Would love to hear thoughts on the Tokina if you go that route as I have been thinking about tha lens alot

    Hi Jon, thanks for your feedback. Right now, beside the Zeiss CZ 15-30, I use mostly Canons 11-24mm and 24-70 but I like having a proper cine lens (par focal, etc...). I’ll keep you posted if I end up buying the Tokina. I guess Phil Holland probably tried it.

    Yes, I knew that you weren't talking about the Sigma 18-35mm but as we owned a copy I just wanted to warn you about the nasty CA we had with it (we tried a few copies in fact). Maybe the full frame primes and zoom are better...

    Here's a short review of your Tokina zoom, Vincent : https://vimeo.com/257287271

    Anyone with experience or feedback on that zoom?
    I tried to rent one in France with no luck...
    I'm wondering if the coating makes any difference with the still version.
