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

You Pay: $599.00

The Tokina Fisheye 10-17mm f/3.5-4.5 AT-X 107 DX Lens was designed exclusively for use with digital SLR cameras with a DX-sized sensor, and combines "full-frame fisheye" (180° diagonal angle of view at a focal length of 10mm) to super wide-angle performance in a single unit.

This lens makes it possible to capture images with an expanded perspective - wider than the human eye can see - including creative deformation of subjects and sharp pan focus that extends throughout the entire frame.

Autofocusing with this lens is not supported with Nikon DSLRs without a built-in autofocus motor, such as the D40, D40x, D60, D3000, D3100, D3200, D5000, D5100, and D5200.

Ultra Wide Angle
This lens enables the shooting of full-frame fisheye images with a 180° angle of view and a focal length of 10mm. Furthermore, the lens offers super wide-angle performance that allows photographer to make use of dramatic changes in angle of view resulting from slight changes in focal length.
Equivalent focal length of 15mm-25.5mm in 35mm format, when used with Nikon digital SLR cameras.
High Optical Performance
Employing ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass, this lens effectively compensates to overcome chromatic aberration throughout the image. And with improved optical architecture and a ghost-free lens coating, ghosting and flare are suppressed to produce clear, high-quality images.
Exclusive Digital Design
The image circle of the lens has been created to match the smaller image recording area of digital SLR cameras. This ensures precise optical performance ideally suited to the camera's digital imaging characteristics.
WP Coating
WP (Water Proof) coating made of a special fluoride compound has been applied to the front surface of the new lens through the use of a unique evaporation process. As a result, the lens offers excellent water- and oil-repellent performance and makes for easier cleaning should the lens be accidentally smeared with fingerprints or cosmetics.
Super Macro
An internal focus system allows photographers to focus from as close as approx. 1" (approx. 2.5 cm), giving them the power to fill the whole frame with surprisingly small subjects.
Quick-Shift Focus System
The Quick-Shift Focus System allows to instantly shift to manual focus once the subject is captured by AF.

    I've had this lens a few months now & use it quite often, especially when I get bored!

    I can get lost behind my camera for hours with this lens.
    It's very fun to use...

    Of all the lenses in my collection, I carry 2 lenses at all times. This one & my workhorse Nikon 18~200 DX VR-II.

    It does fabulous close-ups with an extra twist. When using the macro capability, minute adjustments in lens relation to subject (distance, angle, etc...) can have very dramatic effects on the image.

    Great for close range hip shots... with the 180º field of view you can't miss! Mind your feet & camera strap though... they're always sneaking into the frame!

    Because of the extreme wide angle, over exposure was a problem at first. You'll definitely will want to back off on the TTL metered exposure and avoid matrix metering... spot works best.

    Portraits, both human & pet, are also a great application. Serious portraiture at 10mm ... no. A sense of humor is a must! However, at the 17mm end of the range, very nice effects can be achieved with much less distortion.

    However, distortion is a given throughout its entire range. That's why you buy a fish-eye!

    Landscapes aren't really my thing, so I can't really comment, except to say I've seen some very interesting & pleasing pseudo-landscape shots (Urban & Architectural...) made with this lens.

    The lens is crisp, crisp, crisp, even wide open! This is probably my highest criteria when judging a lens. I just cannot tolerate any softness whatsoever!
    No manual focus override on the lens, so you must use the switch on the camera body. Has not been a problem at all for me.

    When considering buying this lens, I was concerned that the f/3.5~4.5 might become a problem to me. Because of this, I also considered the Tokina 11~16mm f/2.8, which only has an angle of view of 104°~82°. Ultimately, I chose the 180°~100° angle of view of this lens (which is wider at it narrowest than the 11~16mm at it's widest) over the faster f/2.8 of the other. After having worked with it for a while now, this has not even remotely been a problem. However, I haven't tried using it in low light yet.

    Color is Great... maybe too much so.
    Has a tendency toward Cyan & Magenta abberations, especially fringing at high contrast interface such as very dark foreground object against very bright background... a relatively minor annoyance in light of all its other pluses.
    Have also noticed a tendency to add cyan cast to whites... easily correctable during image editing, and again only in high contrast situations (whites against blacks in broad daylight).

    Have not had any problems with flares or internal reflections, and I use this lens frequently in situations where this has been a problem with other lenses.

    The lens hood is built in, but I don't really know why they bothered... it's so tiny! I can't really see it doing much more than help protect the glass, which bulges out so far you can't thread any filter over it. I imagine vignetting would preclude using a filter anyway, even a Cokin... I haven't even bothered to experiment with that.

    This lens seems to be very sturdy & well built. I'm very impressed with this Tokina product, and would definitely buy another Tokina lens, especially if I can't get what I want from Nikon. I can't say the same about Sigma or Tamron, with which I am singularly unimpressed.

    I have absolutely no regrets about buying this lens.

    Does what its suppose to do!

    This fisheye is great on the fly covers 180 degrees of coverage! Its the only kind of fisheye that is a zoom! Its a really good lens when its stopped down too f/5.6...Read complete review

    This fisheye is great on the fly covers 180 degrees of coverage! Its the only kind of fisheye that is a zoom! Its a really good lens when its stopped down too f/5.6 to f/8! Videos is great too! Only problem i can say that i see a lot mostly in bright areas is Purple Fringing,You can always fix it in post editing for the photos but its also on Videos too! This is great price lens when you just need a fisheye since the recent increase in price in nikon glass!

    Good Lens Could be better Does the Job!

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

      This is an all around great fisheye lens. I had debated between this lens and the Nikon 10.5mm fisheye. I chose this one at the last minute due to the zoom. Your not stuck at a fixed focal length. I am not new to photography but I am new when it comes to using fisheye lenses. I am still learning and having a blast with this lens. It has some amount of CA (depending on focal length) which can easily be fixed in post processing. Personally that does not bother me. The build quality is excellent and you can tell due to the weight. This lens works well with my Nikon D7000. No regrets.

        I use this in my underwater housing for Marine photos and above ground for architecture and landscapes. I bought this lens as a replacement for the first one. I purchased after that set of gear was stolen in a smash and grab burglary of my car. Only drawback is the field of view is so wide that you have to be careful to keep your toes out of the shot.

              I recentely purchased this lens to use for underwater photograhpy. All I can say is wow! The lens takes great pictures..even though I did not have the correct port. This is the first Tokina lens and I went with this over the Nikon 10.5 due to more flexability with the 10-17mm. I would buy other TOkina lens after trying this one. It appears to be really well made, since I have only used twice so far, it's a little tough tell how well it stand up to use.

                    I am using this lens primarily underwater in an Ikelite housing with a Nikon D300. The first trip with the lens was to Crystal River to photograph the manatees. The lens allowed me to get extremely close and get great detail and cover a lot of the animal. It has a good feel and I would recommend it for this application.

                              Because there are no straight lines underwater, this fisheye is the perfect lens to capture as much in the frame as possible without distortion. Fantastic piece of glass.

                              This fisheye is great on the fly covers 180 degrees of coverage! Its the only kind of fisheye that is a zoom! Its a really good lens when its stopped down too f/5.6 to f/8! Videos is great too! Only problem i can say that i see a lot mostly in bright areas is Purple Fringing,You can always fix it in post editing for the photos but its also on Videos too! This is great price lens when you just need a fisheye since the recent increase in price in nikon glass!

                              Good Lens Could be better Does the Job!

                              Solid build quality.
                              The only zoom fisheye out there.
                              The only fisheye you'll probably need.

                              This is a superb lens for wide angle underwater photography. Zoom gives you a lot of flexibility.

                              I bought this for underwater photography specifically because it's one inch focusing distance allows for incredible wide angle closeups. Its important to get closeup to a subject with uw strobes to preserve clarity and good color. If you add a teleconverter you can boost its macro capabilities even further. I did notice that it had some trouble autofocusing in low light levels with poor contrast (such as divers wearing black wetsuits against a dark water background.). But it's really the most versatile uw wide angle lens available.

                              I bought this to use with my new Nikon D3100. The description says that it doesn't work with the D40 and D60 however there's no communication to the D3100. I didn't find this in any reviews at the time and it's a bit disappointing.

                              CPU aside, it's a great price for a fisheye zoom and takes quality pics and feels solid.

                                  I got this lens for Christmas from my father and I got out and shot with it the other day. It auto focuses better than the other lens I have. I was able to get some very creative shots with it, and it has a ridiculously wide capture range. I cannot wait to get out and shoot some intense scenery with it. It's also small which makes carrying it around easy and great for shooting outdoor portrait shots. I haven't been able to find something I dislike about it yet, and I hope that I don't. Wonderful product, and affordable enough for my price range if I ever want to purchase another lens from the company.

                                  Overall great lens, great buy.
