It looks like Tokina could be launching three new lenses for Sony FE mount cameras on 12 November. The Tokina ATX-M f/1.4 23mm, 33mm and 56mm are already available for Fujifilm X mount cameras, so this should come as welcome news for Sony shooters looking for a set of affordable primes. 

If this super-fast set of primes for the best Sony cameras are anything like the Fujifilm variants (which we expect they will be, as they just have a different mount) we can expect them to have an aperture range of f/1.4-16, making them perfect for low light photography. They should also include a multi-layer lens coating to suppress light flares and ghosting, and have a de-clickable aperture ring for silent, smooth transitions when using the lens for video.
