2020 marks the 70th anniversary of Japanese lens manufacturer Tokina, and to celebrate that, the brand has just announced its lens development roadmap. Indeed, ten new lenses should come out later this year, including five lenses for Sony E-Mount cameras, three lenses for FUJIFILM X-Mount cameras, and two lenses for Canon EF and Nikon-F mount cameras. Let’s take a closer look at it!
Tokina is 70 years old this year, and in commemoration of this event, the brand has just announced an update to its lens development roadmap. This announcement was initially scheduled for the CP+2020 show that was canceled. However, Tokina is not giving up, and it’s not less than ten lenses that should come out later this year.
Tokina atx-i 11-20mm F/2.8 CF
The Tokina atx-i 11-20mm F/2.8 CF will be a follow-up to the Tokina atx-i 11-16mm F/2.8 that was announced back in October 2019. The Tokina atx-i line of lenses is designed and optimized for APS-C sensor DSLR cameras.
These ultra-wide-angle zoom lens with a constant F/2.8 aperture will be available during Summer 2020, in either Canon EF or Nikon-F mount.
Tokina atx-m Lenses for APS-C Cameras
Also, six new lenses will be added to the Tokina atx-m lineup, including:
- Tokina atx-m 23mm F/1.4 – Available in Sony E-mount and FUJIFILM X-mount.
- Tokina atx-m 33mm F/1.4 – Available in Sony E-mount and FUJIFILM X-mount.
- Tokina atx-m 56mm F/1.4 – Available in Sony E-mount and FUJIFILM X-mount.
These high-speed prime lenses all have an F/1.4 aperture, and there is currently no other technical information about them. The Sony E-mount versions should be available during Summer 2020, while FUJIFILM X-mount ones should be available a bit later during Autumn 2020.
Tokina atx-m Lenses for Full-Frame Cameras
Finally, two new atx-m lenses have been announced: the Tokina atx-m 35mm F/1.8 FE and Tokina atx-m 50mm F/1.8 FE. These two primes feature a Sony E-mount and cover full-frame sensors. They are an excellent addition to the already available Tokina atx-m 85mm F/1.8 FE that was announced in January 2020.
These two atx-m primes for full-frame cameras should be available during Autumn 2020.
