Tokina 10-17mm f/3.5 - 4.5 AT-X 107 AF DX Fisheye Zoom Lens

Product Summary

Overview

As the name suggests the Tokina 10-17mm f/3.5 – 4.5 AT-X 107 AF DX Fisheye is a DX format lens that gives fish-eye perspective. The angle of view mounted on a DX format is 180-100˚. If you’re a big fan of the peep-hole type photography (because that’s what the perspective is when you look through the viewfinder) then this lens should give you hours of joy. This lens actually takes some time to get used to especially for those who are not experienced in this unique perspective. Having said that, for some users, this can also work as an ultra-wide angle lens. But note barrel distortion will be there and that is something to be expected of the lens. Auto-focusing capabilities of the lens is great throughout and stopping down does not help that much.

The construction of the lens consists of 10 elements arranged in 8 groups with the lens diaphragm consisting of 6 blades. At its widest the lens has an f-stop of f/3.5 and stops down all the way to f/22. The lens comes with multi-coating to reduce flares and ghosts something that ultra-wide angle lenses are always susceptible to. It is great that Tokina has provided a built-in lens hood for this baby. The minimum focusing distance of the lens is 0.5’ and gives a magnification ratio of 1:2.56. In other words while you may not shoot real world macro shots with this lens, you can do a bit of close-up photography. The overall weight of the lens is 350 grams. Available at Amazon | Adorama | B&H
