Why did you write Viltrox? Do you think these Tokina are the same as the Viltrox ones?

I'm very glad Tokina is releasing Fuji-X lenses, that's awesome!

Yeah Cary79, that post looks totally legit.

At least the Viltrox 85mm f1.8 and the Tokina 85mm f1.8 have the same optical formula (although they appear to produce the elements separately). Hence the conjecture?

As for the title.tokina has a history of cooperation with other manufacturers they already cooperated with Pentax and probably Nikon in the past with 12-24f4, you didn't call their 50f1.4 tokina-pentax

That had nothing to do with Nikon, Nikon's 12-24mm f4 only has those numbers in common.

The only Nikon collaboration I know of is with Tamron with the old Nikkor AF 75-300mm lenses.

The Tokina 85mm f/1.8 shares the design with the Viltrox 85mm f/1.8

Viltrox announced the 23/1.4, 33/1.4 and 56/1.6 half a year ago - for APS-C E/X. Now I don't know whether the Tokinas share the same design here as well but it seems very likely.

The 35mm f/1.8, 50mm f/1.8 and the atx-i are Tokina designs - at least the atx-i which are refreshed versions of what they had already.
