Through this section of my reviews, I have many times expressed my thoughts, that the needs of most photographers nowadays are to have high quality and performance lenses (and cameras) with the smallest possible size factor.
With Mirrorless cameras users growing very fast, as almost all the latest camera models are offering strong solid performance and high image quality, small but capable bright aperture lenses with affordable price tags (especially after covid pandemic) are potential winners, becoming easily best-sellers.
Tokina really excelled in both these aspects, delivering a solid overall performance-bright aperture lens, with the smallest possible form size (for its wide F1.4 aperture) that it can be used in both stills and video shooting.
The Tokina atx-m 23mm F1.4 X is a very exciting, such a joy-to-use lens, that it can create some very beautiful photos and videos, and it will make you to want to try and find different angles, experimenting a lot in your shots.
Now I just hope that more lenses are coming from Tokina for the X-Mount (via the atx-m series), covering different focal lengths (ultra wide angle, tele, macro) and sizes (pancake F2.8).
