    I've got the Fujinon MK cinezooms and I love these lenses. Currently I pair them with an EF mount 16-35 f2.8 canon, with the metabones speed booster EF-E adapter. This nets me an extreme wide angle, a little zoom, but I don't have the manual controls like I do on my Fuji's...

    Does anyone have any input on an alternative lens to fill this spot? I recall tokina used to make an E mount, cine, 11-16 2.8 - but I think the zoom range is too limiting compared to what I have now

    Tokina 16-28, but that range will overlap your Fuji 18-55mm.

    I own the Fuji MK 18-55mm and pair it with the Tokina 11-16mm Cine-version. I also own the Rokinon 12mm Cine that I purchased prior to getting the Tokina 11-16 Cine. I end up using the Roki more than the Tokina because the Roki is easier to carry around than the Tokina. Smaller and lighter weight.

    It is rare that I need or want anything wider than 18mm on s35.
    Big sources matter.

    The closest I can think of is the Tokina 16-28mm which is full frame, and available in EF mount so you could pair it with your speed booster:

    Funny. Lately, I almost always need wider than 18mm on my FS7. I would also vote for trying out the Tokina 16-28mm. I have the first cinema version in EF mount and tend to use it mostly with the Metabones SB Ultra on my FS7 - giving me an approx 11 - 20mm range that would work nicely with the Fuji's.

    And now just saw Liam's post after posting mine....

    Tokina have a new cine version of their 11-20mm T3 which is really nicely put together. VERY well priced too. For a wide addition to a kit of MKs, I think it’d be pretty perfect, you’ll have 11-135mm at T/3.

    I’ll second this. the 11-20 is a great lens & fits the range you’re looking for.

    I have the Dulcos 11-16, 2.8, PL mount with Metabones PL-E. Third one I have owned, and it has never failed me for the wide shot. Used it for a lot of big boat interiors. Will be selling my FS7 MK2 so the lens and adapter are in the classified, if you are interested.

    Also use my GM 16-35 and love that lens as well.

    Thanks, fellas. I forgot about this lens! The 11-20 T3 Tokina Seems like exactly what I'd be looking for. Should feel just like my speed booster / canon 16-35 combo. There's also certainly some thought to be had about buying it in E mount or PL mount. Since my zooms are E, it's nice to have a full ecosystem like that... but if I left the PL mount attached to it, then I have a PL mount and don't need to rent one when proper cine primes are at hand.

    Tough to get rid of that canon lens though, it finds a home on my a7sii quite often.


    Thanks for the input on my ever-changing fs7 setup. Just when you thought you had it dialed....

    ^ I feel your pain. I was skeptical of investing in E mount glass when I purchased my FS7 when it first came out... and do enjoy the flexibility of using speed booster with my Canon glass. But purchasing E mount now (has it been nearly 5 years later?? ) seems to make more sense to me than EF mount...(the Venice having e mount sort of sealed the deal for me) and since using the Sony 18-110 f/4 on a lot of shoots this past year, those G series lenses (and the Sigma's in E) are starting to pull me in that direction... If I needed primes - I would certainly be considering the new Tokina's as well.
