A Review of the Affordable Tokina atx-m 85mm f/1.8 FE Lens


An 85mm lens with a wide aperture is one of the most popular choices among photographers, offering the classic focal length for portraits paired with narrow depth of field and a lot of bokeh. Such lenses can run quite high in price, however, sometimes well over $2,000. The Tokina atx-m 85mm f/1.8 FE comes in at a significantly lower price, and this great video review takes a look at the sort of performance and image quality you can expect from it in practice.

Coming to you from Darren Miles, this great video review takes a look at the Tokina 85mm f/1.8 ATX-M lens. At $399, this lens is significantly cheaper than many first-party options, though it still offers a variety of useful features, including:

  • One SD low dispersion element for less chromatic aberrations and better clarity
  • Super Low Reflection Multi-Coating for less ghosting and flares and increased contrast
  • Super Low Reflection Multi-Coating also repels water, oil, and dust
  • ST-M stepping motor for fast and quiet autofocus suitable for both photo and video work
  • Nine-blade diaphragm for smoother bokeh
  • Electronic interface to send all EXIF data to the camera
  • Full compatibility with Eye AF and manual focus assist features

Check out the video above for Miles’ full thoughts on the lens.
