About Tokina 10-17mm

Tokina AT-X 107 AF DX 10-17mm f/3.5-4.5 Fish-eye lens exclusively for Digital SLR cameras with APS-C sensors.

The new Tokina AT-X 107 DX is a full-frame fish-eye lens that gives the photographer a 180° 100° ; field of view with dramatic curvature of field or "fish-eye" effect. With this lens an entire view or vista can be captured, wider than the human eye can see. The AT-X 107 opens an entirely new dimension of photography.

The front element of the AT-X 107 DX has a newly formulated WP or "Water Proof" optical coating on the glass. This new coating makesmarks such as spots left by water or finger-prints much easier to clean than standard multi-coating.

The rear optical group of the lens contains 1 SD (Super-Low Dispersion) glass element to reduce the number of elements (pieces of glass) in the optical design in order to make the lens more compact, light-weight and faster focusing.

The Tokina 10-17mm is commonly used for Landscape/scenery, Special effects and more.The Tokina 10-17mm is popular because customers like the following qualities of the Tokina 10-17mm: Consistent output, Durable, Easily interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Rugged and Strong construction

Amazing little lens!

I'm using this on a Nikon D200. Between this lens and the 18-200 VR I can accomplish 99% of what I want to for "walk-around" photography. Keep in mind that it is a fisheye so you get typical image distortion, however the sharpness was a pleasant surprise! The zoom capability is also a very nice feature for a fisheye. The lens construction is very good (typical Tokina Pro). I highly recommend this lens if you're looking for a fisheye or maybe even a super-wide.

Best fisheye

By

from USA  -  Semi-pro Photographer

This is the best fisheye lens I've ever used. It's amazing on a cropped camera, and at certain focal lengths its nice on a full frame. The fact that it can zoom is a nice feature that allows a lot of creativity. Underwater is where this lens REALLY shines! One of my overall favorite things about this lens is how close it can focus... You can take really creative super wide macro type shots that no other lens that I know of can match. The only thing I would change from an engineering perspective, would be to make this a fixed f/2.8 aperture lens, but then again you don't really want big apertures on fisheyes anyway. Get this lens, you'll love it!

For full frame

By

from washington IL  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Full corner to corner image can be achieved on an FX camera between approx. 14.5-17MM depending on the camera model, at 10-14MM there is a semi-circular view. I am using this with a 9" underwater dome for wide angle, whale sharks, dolphins etc.

Fishy Smishy...

By

from nj  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Not a bad lens but not as good as new canon 8-15mm. Built nicely and performed well while i had it. I had no major issues with it, id recoment it for any intermediate photographers with an aps-c cam. Definately afordable and reliable.

Sharp, well-constructed

By

from Tucson, AZ  -  Pro Photographer

I use it sparingly as it's a nice effect for 2 or 3 images during a wedding such as room/table shots, church shots, large group shots (but too many would be overkill). It's also fun for funky landscapes.

Tokina 10 mm fisheye lens

By

from Texas  -  Photo Enthusiast

Strictly u/w photography - works well on wide angle under water shots. It is suppose to work on macro photos as well - will try this next time I dive. It covers a very wide area and is easy to use. I use it on Canon 50D camera in a SeaSea housing. This lens is suppose to work with other models as well - suggest you check with camera manufacturer to make sure it will work on other models.

Outstanding for underwater photo

By

from Buenos Aires, Argentina  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I bought this lens mainly for underwater use, after a web research in wich I found excelents reviews. I have the nikkor fisheye 16 and wanted to recover the angle I lost in using this lens in DX format camera. For underwater it is great to have the posibility to go from a 10 mm fisheye to a super wide 17 in the same dive. The pictures resulting after many dives are beautiful in terms of color and sharpness. I also took some videos with the Nikon D7000 and the result is excelent. For topside photography I found it also great. If you use it in 17 mm the usual curved lines of the fisheye are minimal so you can use it as a super wide angle also.

Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

First Name L  Hello,I would like to know if this lens is good for close up action shots in sports?.Thanks!
JOHN H  It all depends on the sport and how close you want to get. Being a fisheye, this lens gives an extreme wide angle view with a lot of distortion, so you would have to get very close, and with most sports that would put you in the middle of the action with the risk of getting in the way of the competitors. If you are willing to set your camera up remotely and risk getting it damaged, you might be able to get some interesting perspectives for things like skateboarding, racing, bicycling, etc. For team sports, a telephoto lens would be the obvious choice.
Shopper  ... What Nikon bodies does the Tokina 10-17 fisheye autofocus work with? (I have a D5000 and looking to switch bodies and the lens doesn't a/f with the 5000),
GEORGE G  I have a D70 and it fits and works beautifully. Its my understanding that all Nikon body - SLR or DSLR - share the same lens mounting config.
Trevor H  I have the tokina10-17mm on a nikon 3100 camera in an underwater housing. My lens doesn't focus onto a point,for some reason. Should the lens auto focus on a point, or does it rely on the depth of field? Trevor
CHARLES R B  Never having used an underwater housing with this or any other lens, I can't be of much help. Have you tried the lens/camera combination on dry land? I use my lens with a D90 and a D200 and get very satisfactory results. Could there be a problem because (I believe) under water things appear closer than they actually are?
