About atx-m Series

Preserving the Tokina's advanced technology (atx) new series is marked with "m" letter, that stands for "motif" and "mirrorless"- motivation that Tokina provides to photographer for creating unique and breathtaking photos with mirrorless cameras.

"A short tele lens that completes the atx-m X prime line-up at a very affordable price tag. With a focal length perfect for portraiture, combined with the great image quality, its excellent rendering and beautiful colors, this lens a must-have in every photographer's bag. The lens is sharp even wide open, the AF is fast, silent and accurate, and as in the case of atx-m 23mm and 33mm lenses, it comes in a beautiful, small and lightweight but durable body that fits perfectly the Fujifilm camera style."

Chris Anagnostopoulos

"The Tokina atx-m 56mm performs really well, with its super fast autofocus, solid build, good low light performance and superb image rendering making it a good option for fast paced street photographers."

Jonny Dub Levelz

"A great lens when it comes to communication and calibration with camera. Extremely well built, superbly fast focusing and ideal weight to carry all day. A more enhanced and advanced version of this kind with wide aperture of f/1.4, this lens is not only just for Bokeh that's why I am already considering it as a favorite for Fujifilm users."

Optical Performance

LENS CONSTRUCTION MTF CHART

CCI means Color Contribution Index, that measures the light transmission values of the lens. Particularly, it is a three number system which describes the degree to which a lens is expected to change the overall color of a photograph relative to that obtained with no lens in the system. Compared to the location of the ISO standard point, actual value point tends to be closer to warm tones (Yellow, Red), but stays within the ideal coordinates that proves natural and well balanced color reproduction ability of the lens.
