Tokina announces ATX-M 85mm f/1.8 FE for Sony

Tokina has officially announced the ATX-M 85mm f/1.8 FE lens – price tag $499 – for Sony E-mount cameras.

Boasting a new design, the Tokina ATX-M 85mm f/1.8 FE is made of anodised semi-satin finish metal, with 10 glass elements – one of which is an SD Low Dispersion element – in its optical construction.

Tokina has added a Super Low Reflection Coating to help prevent ghosting and flare, as well as repel water, oil and dust.

Other features include an aperture range of f/1.8 to f/16, a nine-blade diaphragm and Tokina’s ST-M stepping motor for faster, quieter AF performance.

The new Tokina lens is also fitted with an electronic interface on its mount that conveys all lens Exif data to the camera and is also fully compatible with Sony’s in-camera functions, such as image stabilization, Eye AF, MF assist and more.

You can buy the new Tokina ATX-M 85mm f/1.8 FE from 7 February at retailers such as Adorama, B&H Photo Video and Wex Photo Video.
