Tokina’s atx-m nomenclature is used for the company’s interchangeable lenses designed exclusively for mirrorless camera systems. In the case of these three lenses, Tokina says it specifically went for a ‘small and lightweight’ design for pairing with APS-C camera systems.
The 23mm F1.4 lens offers a 35mm full-frame equivalent focal length while the 33mm and 56mm offer 50mm and 85mm equiv. focal lengths, respectively. All three of the lenses use a stepping motor for fast and quiet autofocus, feature a click-less aperture ring for quiet operation when shooting video and use a 52mm front filter thread so filters and attachments are interchangeable. Tokina also notes the lenses fully communicate with Sony cameras and support Sony’s five-axis image stabilization on compatible cameras.
The atx-m 23mm is constructed of 11 elements in 10 groups, including two low-dispersion (SD) elements, and uses a nine-blade aperture diaphragm, while the atx-m 33mm and atx-56mm lenses are constructed of 10 elements in nine groups, including one SD element, and uses a nine-blade aperture diaphragm.
