As expected, Kenko Tokina has announced the sale of the Tokina atx-m 56mm F1.4 X lens for APS-C mirrorless cameras with Fujifilm X mount. Sales will begin on August 6, 2021.
The manufacturer characterizes the novelty with an EGF of about 85 mm as a tool for amateur and semi-professional shooting of portraits, street portraits, street scenes and landscapes in photo or video mode. The novelty complements the atx-m 23mm and atx-m 33mm models. According to the manufacturer, three lenses – wide-angle, standard and moderate telephoto – allow you to cover important genres of photography: landscape, street photography and portraits.
The advantages of the Tokina atx-m 56mm F1.4 X lens include its small size and weight, a large maximum aperture for beautiful blurring and low-light shooting, and fast but quiet autofocusing provided by the ST-M drive. The lens supports in-camera image stabilization, and its color balance is said to be “tuned” to match the film simulation modes of Fujifilm cameras. The iris ring can be rotated without clicking, making the lens well suited for video shooting. The manufacturer does not name the price.
