Tokina, the renowned maker of prime quality lenses is especially recognized for their Fujifilm camera version lenses.Recently, it has announced the launch of three fast APS-C prime lenses for the Sony E-Mount within a month, which are  the at-m 23mm f/1.4, the atx-m 33mm f/1.4, and the atx-m 56mm f/1.4. 

You can use all three lenses for still as well as video photography. You will get a 2 year warranty period for all the lenses. The price of the lenses would be around $ 450 on average, considering the price of Fujifilm version lenses. These lenses will be available in the market from 12th November onwards. According to the company, beginner photographers would be able to take full benefits of these new lenses. 

Common Features 

 

 

 

There are some common features in all three lenses- all are lightweight, fast, and possess an STM stepping motor that makes autofocusing soundless. All of them have the same aperture range, f/1.4 through f/1.6 that uses a 9 bladed diaphragm, which is perfect for shooting in low light conditions. To prevent light flares and ghosting, there is a multi-layer lens coating. Created for full-frame cameras, these lenses are a bit bigger than the Fujifilm lenses but almost equally lightweight. The black, glossy lenses are sleek in design. The focus ring has a rubber texture that makes it easy to handle. While shooting videos, you can control the apertures easily because of the clickless aperture rings. These lenses are well-suited for 5-axis in-body stabilization.  

23mm f/1.4

 

It is the widest among the three lenses. It will be especially beneficial for landscape and street photography. In a full-frame camera, the focal length increases from 23 mm to about 35 mm.  has 11 elements in 10 groups. Two low dispersion SD glass elements are there that ensure proper color distribution and clarity by decreasing lens aberrations and color fringing. Though the barrel, as well as the lens mount of the 23mm f/1.4 lens, is made of metal, this lens is light overall. Its least focus distance is 11.8″.
