Tokina announces its atx-m 56mm f/1.4 X lens for Fuji X Mount

Tips & Techniques

Tokina has announced a new portrait lens for the Fuji X mount system. It’s the Tokina atx-m 56mm f/1.4 X, offering a field of view equivalent to that of an 85mm lens on full-frame cameras with a wide f/1.4 aperture. Adding to the Tokina’s atx-m 23mm and 33mm f/1.4 lenses, this completes their Fuji X trio covering the most popular prime focal lengths.

Tokina says the lens is “extremely compact and lightweight”, offering a good balance with the small Fuji X mount APS-C mirrorless cameras. They also say it offers “creamy and beautiful front and back bokeh” with great light intake, thanks to its large f/1.4 aperture.

The lens features a fast and silent ST-M focus motor, with full communication to the body to assist with its 5-axis IBIS. They say its colour balance is tuned to fit with the film simulation modes of the Fuji cameras (whatever that means) and offers a clickless aperture ring for adjusting aperture smoothly when shooting video.

The Tokina atx-m 56mm f/1.4 X will be on sale from August 6th, 2021, although I expect pre-orders will start to open up at various retailers before then. The price in Japan is expected to be ¥ 62,000 excluding tax, which equates to around $563. So, I would expect it’ll possibly be in the $549-599 region once it hits the USA. For comparison, the Tokina atx-m 23mm f/1.4 X and Tokina atx-m 33mm f/1.4 X are priced at $449 and $399 respectively.
