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

You Pay: $559.00
Product Highlights
  • Fisheye Zoom Lens
  • 180° Diagonal Field of View
  • Aperture Range: f/3.5-22
  • Water Repellent Coating
  • Super-Low Dispersion Glass Element
  • Built-In Lens Hood
  • Compatible with APS-C-Sized Sensors

The Tokina 10-17mm f/3.5-4.5 AT-X 107 AF DX Fisheye Lens for Canon is a rectangular (non-circular) fisheye lens, providing a 180° diagonal field of view. The broad angle of view gives an inherent curved, fisheye effect and can be used to capture expansive spaces from a relative close range.

This lens' front element features a WR (water repellant) coating for easier cleaning and less susceptibility to water spots and smudges. The rear optical group contains one super-low dispersion (SD) glass element in order to reduce chromatic aberrations and provide a cleaner appearing image.

Note: This lens is compatible with APS-C-sized sensors only and will not provide a full, rectangular image when used in conjunction with a full-frame sensor.

Fisheye Design
This lens' 10-17mm focal length provides an ultra wide angle of view from 180-100°, allowing for greater depth of field and more ease when photographing in tight spaces.
Lens Coating and Optical Design
This lens integrates a WR (water repellant) coating to the front element in order to lessen the appearance of water spots, smudges, and to help with cleaning the glass itself. There is also a super-low dispersion (SD) glass element to help reduce chromatic aberrations and provide greater optical purity.

    I've had this lens for about 8 months, and I again am impressed with Tokina (I also own the 12-24 f/4). This lens is sharp at all apertures, and is just a wonderful lens for extreme wide angle shooting. From true diagonal fisheye at 10mm to a near rectilinear ultra-wide at 17mm, this is a very unique and versatile lens. Excellent color and contrast, and exceptional build quality (a hallmark of Tokina lenses.) There is chromatic abberation at high contrast edges from time to time, but I find it is completely correctable in postprocessing. I've used this lens for everything from interior architecture, unique portraits, group shots and landscapes. The lens focuses EXTREMELY close, so you can really accentuate size if you so desire.

    I love this lens.

    First and foremost... this is not a fish to wide zoom, it is a zooming fisheye. The distortion stays the same at all focal lengths.

    However, this is the best fisheye out for digital cameras. The reason I say this is that if you are like me, and have both full-frame and APS-C sized cameras, this lens will work on both. I know it says you can't, but the way the mount is designed, it doesn't protrude into the mirrorbox like some other lenses made for digital.

    I normally shoot with a 5D and 40D. Now I can take a fisheye with either camera. It may not be 180 degrees with the 5D because I can only use it at about 15mm, but the distortion is good enough to fake it.

    If you are thinking about getting a decent fisheye that can work on pretty much any camera from a DsMKIII to a Rebel, this is it.

      I own the original canon 15mm and this lens. This is better. At least the equal optically, you can actually cheat this thing down on a full frame camera and get wider - down to about 14mm before the blades show. Or go wider and show the blades. An interesting well built great performer. I am a full-time pro shooter using it on a 1dx and 5d3.

        The Tokina lens is a great buy for a reasonable price compared to the canon lens of the same type. I have recently used this lens with my canon T3i and on camera speedlite nothing else. The real estate pictures came out great using this fish eye lens.The Tokina lens performed well in manual & automatic mode with no problems. I have posted some pictures using the Tokina fish eye lens.
        Judge for yourself. I would recommend this lens for those like me, on a budget.

        Comments about Tokina 10-17mm f/3.5-4.5 AT-X 107 AF DX Fisheye Lens for Canon:

        I used this on my 7d and loved it. Not that great in low light, but anything larger than f/3.5 and you would start getting into shallower depth than you would want with a fisheye, so that's just the nature of this type of lens I guess.

        Being able to zoom up to 17mm is pretty arbitrary on a crop frame, but it doesn't hurt to have the option, and since I upgraded to a 5d I'm able to still use it because you can zoom up to 17mm and not see the inside of the lens. It does seem to be less sharp on full frame though, just a little fuzzy maybe, but not terrible.

              I use the lens for both underwater and top-side photography. I like its close focussing ability UW and the FE effect topside in some instances. I am a rectilinear lens 'guy' but enjoy shooting this lens. I would have given it a 5 star rating except for its cost. The same lens sold for far less money a few years ago. However, it appears to be a solid well built lens. I would, and did, buy a super/ultra wide angle rectilinear lens before buying a specialty fish-eye lens such as this one.

              Comments about Tokina 10-17mm f/3.5-4.5 AT-X 107 AF DX Fisheye Lens for Canon:

              This is not only a great fish-eye lens, but it has more practical uses as well. When shooting at 17mm the distortion on the perimeter is minimal allowing the user to go from a fisheye shot all the way to a decent portrait. Image quality is far greater than I expected and chromatic aberrations are minimal. Performs very well in low light as well. Despite warnings, this lens does fit fit on the 5D Mark II with no risk of cracking the mirror. However, you can only zoom out to about 14 - 15 mm before the built in lens hood becomes visible in the shot. Even However, since the 5D mark II is a full frame sensor, you get what appears to be fisheye effect equivalent to the 10 - 12 mm range when using it on a smaller sensor camera like the 7D. I have not compared it to any of the canon fisheyes, but for the extended range it offers and significant savings in price I am very happy I chose this lens instead. Note, you can not get a circular image with this lens, so if that is important try the new cannon 8 - 15 mm L series. Another great feature is the autofocus that is lacking on many other off brand lenses. Lastly, build quality is excellent. Much heavier than expected! The only thing that is on the down side is that it is slightly more difficult to attache/detach to the body than my canon lenses and there is no red dot visible on the exterior of the lens, just on the mount, but you get used to it quickly.

              Comments about Tokina 10-17mm f/3.5-4.5 AT-X 107 AF DX Fisheye Lens for Canon:

              Just purchased the Tokina for my Canon T3i. Mainly using it for video but also pictures. The images are crystal clear and so is the video. The only thing I saw that was on the lens that I didn't really see a need for was the zoom. It is nice to have a zoom on it so you can adjust the distortion, but the distortion doesn't really change that much going from 10mm-17mm. Although the f-stop only goes down to 3.5, it's really good for night shots, which I already experimented with and they came out great.

              Overall I love this lens. If you have a T3i or any of the Rebel series this is the fisheye to go with...

              First I was confused about to what lens should I buy: Fisheye or Wide angle. So the salesman recommend this lens, it's like a combo lens, at 10mm it's fisheye and if you go up to 17mm it's a wide angle so it's a 2in1. Pretty good!
              I tested it, and the quality is perfect, and the aperture size is also very well.

                      Comments about Tokina 10-17mm f/3.5-4.5 AT-X 107 AF DX Fisheye Lens for Canon:

                      Out of the box this little lens is one clever piece of hardware. Rugged, industrial looking and precise, but in the field the results have been haphazard. I work in nightclubs, getting shoved around, drunk patrons with no attention span, you need to get in and get the shot in one attempt. This lens will not Auto-Focus in low light at all, it just rolls past perfect focus. With about a 1/4 degree of rotation on the focus ring between a group of people at 4-6" and infinity, manual focus is difficult at best. Only solution is whipping out my not too bright DEK video light, AFing and shooting.

                      That said this lens has won me some friends for life from DJs, MCs and Bands and also captured some great club lighting and crowd shots (though mostly with the help of a monopod).

                      You can get the shot but you have to work for it.

                      Would try the Sigma 10mm if I had the chance.

                            I cutted of the lens shade once I use on a full frame EOS camera.

                            The macro is amazing!!

                            Evaluating the image from this Tokina and from the 15 mm Canon 2.8f I have, the difference is on the shadows, where the zoom lens is not so great.

                              I used this lens with my Canon 7d & Ikelite housing to take underwater video/photos during a recent scuba trip. The wide angle worked great both underwater & on land. Can't believe how close you can get to a subject to take a pic & great for group shots. Fabulous lens! Once my friends saw the results of the photos/videos, everyone wanted one!

                                  I was struggling trying to decide between the canon fisheye, the sigma, and this one. I ultimately choose this one because of the high ratings and good price along with the fact that it wasn't fixed. I couldn't be more happy with my decision. When I shoot with it at 10mm I really get the fisheye effect and when I zoom into 17mm it almost looks like I'm shooting with a wide angle. Best of both worlds! I've taken several wonderful photos with it already and I plan on taking many more.

                                    I am shooting video footage with this lens mounted on a Canon T2i. It produces images that are clear and sharp. I am using it inside an underwater housing with a dome port and I am getting great depth of field.
