Tokina, which is celebrating its 70th anniversary and had planned to reveal this information at CP+, has announced its latest 2020 lens development roadmap, showing a number of new lenses it plans to release in 2020 for DSLR and mirrorless cameras.
The announcement, seen above, is split into four different sections, based on the lens mounts the forthcoming lenses are destined for. First up is the atx-i lineup for Canon EF- and Nikon F-mount camera systems. In addition to the previously-announced 11–16mm F2.8 CF and 100mm F2.8 CF Macro lenses, Tokina also teases an upcoming 11–20mm F2.8 CF lens due out in Summer 2020 for Canon and Nikon APS-C DSLR camera.
Moving onto Tokina’s atx-m series, the updated roadmap shows off three new APS-C lenses for Sony E-mount and Fujifilm X-mount camera systems: a 23mm F1.4, 33mm F1.4 and 56mm F1.4. The E-mount version of these lenses (denoted by an ‘E’ after the lens name) are set for a Summer 2020 release, while the X-mount versions (denoted by an ‘X’ after the lens name) aren’t due out until Autumn 2020.
Tokina also highlights three atx-m series lenses for full-frame Sony E-mount cameras. In addition to the 85mm F1.8 FE, which is currently available for $499 (Adorama, B&H), Tokina also highlights a 35mm F1.8 FE and 50mm F1.8 FE lens, both of which are due out in Autumn 2020.
It’s unconfirmed at this time, but it’s worth noting these lenses do bear a striking resemblance in looks and specs to a number of Viltrox lenses that have already been announced (and delayed).
