1. Introduction

Since the very beginning of digital systems based on APS-C/DX sensors Tokina have been very active in delivering ultra wide-angle zoom lenses designed just for them. Already 15 years ago they offered the Tokina AT-S 124 PRO DX AF 12-24 mm f/4 and in November 2007 they added the Tokina AT-X 116 PRODXAF 11–16mm f/2.8 to that. Several years later the company launched three other interesting devices: the Tokina AT-X PRODX 12–28mm f/4, the AT-X PRODX 11–20mm f/2.8, and the AT-X PROSD 14–20mm f/2 (IF)DX.

The last reflex camera launch took place in 2020 when they presented the Tokina ATX-i 11–20mm f/2.8CF.

Still the company is well aware of the fact that nowadays digital mirrorless systems rule on the market and in order to be an important market player they have to offer also products designed to cooperate with cameras of this type. The launch of the ATX-M 11-18 mm f/2.8 E model, presented in September 2022 as an Sony E mount version, seems to be an answer to this trend.
