Tokina has launched a new line of lenses which are designed to offer affordable lenses for mirrorless cameras. The first of these, the Tokina atx-m 85mm f/1.8 is a fast but affordable portrait prime for the Sony full-frame cameras, which has just gone on sale.

While the new lens is only being produced for the Sony mount, Tokina says the atx-m range will eventually include lenses “for multiple mounts and sensor formats”, likely including Canon’s RF and Nikon’s Z mounts, as well as the L-mount used by Leica, Sigma and Panasonic cameras.
