Tokina atx-m 56mm F1.4 X - featuring angle of view equal to approx. 85mm in full frame (standard angle) is designed as a highly popular optical gear for amateur or even semi - professional photographers to capture portraits, street portraits, street snaps and landscapes in still or video mode.
Special optical design formula together with one Low-Dispersion (SD) glass element provides excellent optical performance and corrects aberrations.
CCI means Color Contribution Index, that measures the light transmission values of the lens. Particularly, it is a three number system which describes the degree to which a lens is expected to change the overall color of a photograph relative to that obtained with no lens in the system. Compared to the location of the ISO standard point, actual value point tends to be closer to warm tones (Yellow, Red), but stays within the ideal coordinates that proves natural and well balanced color reproduction ability of the lens.
