Fírin is a variation of Fírinne, the Old Irish word for “truth,” which was coined during the Gaelic Revival in the late 19th Century. It means, "that which is real". It signifies "being true to someone or something". And it represents a promise from Tokina to photographers to help them capture the truth in their images with this revolutionary new lens. With FíRIN, photographers can shoot with confidence, knowing that every image captured with their mirrorless cameras will be its own moment of truth.

By adopting two all-glass precision molded aspherical elements and 3 Super-low Dispersion (SD) glass lens elements we succeeded in greatly reducing aberrations yielding images higher resolution and contrast. This optical design demonstrates Tokina’s decades of experience and traditions of excellence as an optics manufacturer merged with the application of new technologies.
Anti-reflective coatings play an important role in the optical performance of the lens. In addition to the fact that all glass elements of the FíRIN 20mm f/2 are multi-coated, considerable work has been done with the rear convex surfaces of the large G1 element. This element was very difficult to coat due to its complex shape. The Coatings are even on the contacting surfaces of the element combinations G6- G7 and G10-G11. All these small measures add up to reduce reflections and flare to an absolute minimum while increasing sharpness and contrast.
