Are Tokina lenses any good and who are they?
Tokina is part of the Kenko Tokina Co. Ltd. group and has been an optical manufacturer for over 60 years. Tokina has brought a multitude of lenses to the market that are suited for both DSLR and mirrorless users. High-quality build and performance come as standard for Tokina lenses along with incredibly competitive prices.
Tokina Mirrorless Lenses
Tokina mirrorless lenses are perfect for the Sony E and FE mount and the Fujifilm X-mount. Suitable for a mix of APS-C and full-frame mounts, the Firin and ATX-M ranges offer focal lengths from the Tokina FiRIN 20mm F2 AF Lens - Sony E Mount to the Tokina FiRIN 100mm f2.8 FE - Sony E Mount. Perfect for photography styles such as landscapes and portraiture, there is a Tokina mirrorless lens for all types of photographers.
Firin: A variation of the Old Irish word for ‘truth’, the Firin range of lenses at Clifton Cameras covers both 20mm and 100mm focal lengths with AF and MF lenses available. Designed for full-frame Sony mirrorless cameras, the lenses are lightweight and compact and produce exquisitely high image quality. Suited for both portrait and macro, the Tokina FiRIN 100mm f2.8 FE for Sony E Mount features a fast aperture for excellent performance in low-light.
ATX-M: The Tokina ATX-M range of lenses targets the high-end mirrorless cameras currently available on the market. The likes of the Tokina ATX-M 23mm F1.4 Fujifilm X Mount Lens and the Tokina ATX-M 85mm f1.8 FE Sony E-Mount Lens offer photographers superb options for street photography and classic portraiture. Making use of the fast apertures, these lenses create incredibly soft and beautiful bokeh.
Tokina DSLR Lenses
Catering for the classic photographer and the next generation of DSLR camera users, these premium full-frame and crop-sensor lenses are the perfect partner for high-end DSLR cameras and assist the photographer in capturing their subjects in incredibly high quality and detail.
Opera: The wide zoom of the Tokina Opera 16-28mm F2.8 FF Lens is for the Canon and Nikon DSLR user. The fast aperture allows for tack-sharp images across the entire frame, best suited to landscape and architecture photographers. The Tokina Opera 50mm F1.4 FF Lens is the true ‘must have’ lens for any photographer and the super-fast F1.4 aperture allows for superior performance in low-light along with super-soft bokeh for the ultimate portraiture.
ATX-i: A redesign of the original ATX range, the atx-i brings additional interaction, meaning that Tokina has worked hard to develop a range of lenses that offer the photographer a unique experience. With both APS-C and full-frame sensors covered, the atx-i range offers wide-angle zooms like the Tokina atx-i 11-16mm F2.8 CF Lens through to the portraiture and macro dual capability of the full-frame Tokina atx-i 100mm f2.8 FF MACRO lens.
AT-X PRO: Standing for ‘Advanced Technology-X’ the AT-X PRO range of lenses offer Canon and Nikon DSLR users a high-quality and competitively priced option for wide-angle zooms. With the likes of the Tokina AF 12-28mm F4 AT-X PRO DX Lens and the hugely popular Tokina AT-X 24-70mm f2.8 PRO FX, there are options available for the everyday shooter through to the landscape and architecture photographer.
Tokina Reflex Lenses
With a nod to the 80s and 90s and the SZ-X reflex lenses, the new SZX 400mm F8 lenses are available for nearly all camera systems. With options for micro four thirds, APS-C and full-frame sensors across a wide selection of brands, the reflex lenses from Tokina allows photographers to dip into a nostalgic form of photography with a super-telephoto prime lens at an incredibly low price.
