Japanese lens brand Tokina has an extensive selection of high-quality lenses for full-frame and APS-C format cameras, but its new atx-m 23mm f/1.4 X and atx-m 33mm f/1.4 X are its first offerings for Fujifilm X Series cameras.
Both are compact and lightweight so ideal as take everywhere lenses and feature a fast and responsive ST-M AF motor that meshes fully with the camera it is fitted to so you’ll have face detect and other advanced focusing features. That applies to image stabilisation too with Fujifilm cameras that have it. Lens aperture can be controlled in 0.3EV steps using the lens ring but set this to A and the f/number can be adjusted from the camera body.
The atx-m 23mm f/1.4 X has an 11 elements in 10 group construction with two super low dispersion (SD) lenses used to minimise aberrations and help maximise edge to edge sharpness even at the wider lens apertures. Other key features include 52mm filter thread, 30cm minimum focus, multi-coating and a weight of just 276g.
The atx-m 33mm f/1.4 X boasts a similar feature set with same focus motor, filter size and aperture ring. The optical make-up is slightly different with 10 elements in 9 groups with two SD lenses and minimum focus is 40cm.
The 23mm f/1.4 and 33mm f/1.4 lenses are in store now priced at £449.99 and £399.99 respectively.
Both lenses were announced last December and it looks like Tokina is going to have a busy 2021 with its roadmap showing some exciting products due. For Fujifilm X and Sony APS-C E-mount there will be a 56mm f/1.4 short telephoto and for full-frame Sony E-mount a 35mm f/1.8 E and 50mm f/1.8 E are on the way.
