  • For Nikon Digital Cameras

  • Super-Low Dispersion Glass Element

This ultra wide-angle Tokina AT-X 107 AF DX NH Fisheye 10-17mm f/3.5-4.5 Lens for Nikon delivers the ultimate in wide-angle drama for your Nikon camera. A 180° view at the 10mm setting takes in more than the human eye sees, with a typical dramatic curvature of field. At the 17mm end of the zoom, it's a very wide-angle lens.

This lens may be used with cameras using APS-C size sensors, and with cameras using full-frame sensors. A full corner-to-corner image can be achieved on a full-frame (FX) camera between approx. 14.5-17mm depending on the camera model--at 10-14mm the image doesn't cover the entire frame, and there's a semi-circular view.

This very useful lens contains one super-low dispersion glass element, helping to make the lens compact, lightweight (12.3 oz/350g) and fast focusing. The front element has a Water Repellent (WR) optical coating which makes removing water spots and fingerprints much easier. The lens differs from the AT-X 107 DX in that the built-in hood has been removed allowing for a wider image area and more coverage on full-frame sensor (FX) cameras.

This lens' does not have its own auto focus motor and will only support AF when used on a camera whose body has an auto focus motor.

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

            Even though I have two Nikon DX/APS-C cameras, a D40X and a D5200, I bought the Tokina 10-17 zoom fisheye NH model without the lens hood(which was a bit more because it is a "new" model and because they can) rather than the one with the built-in lens hood(which was a bit cheaper), there is no optical differences. On another review, another user noticed there was a sight amount of vignetting at the edges because of the built-in lens hood at 10mm on a DX camera, I didn't want to find out later that this was unacceptable to me and then having to return it; the time & effort, and expense of return shipping simply wasn't worth the extra cost difference to me. I also plan to use this on my friend's full-frame FX camera, so the coverage & vignetting could be importantIt works great on both my D40X and D5200 with zero vignetting at 10mm. I also have a Nikon 10-24mm regular lens. This lens is also supposed to work on full-frame, FX cameras, but I haven't tried it yet because I haven't gotten together with my friend who owns one.The lens doesn't have an auto-focusing mechanism, and but then neither does the Nikon 10mm fish eye. Most of the time, I just set the focus to infinity(the figure "8" symbol on the distance scale on the focus ring) so everything from ~2' to infinity will be in focus, but you must remember to manually move the focusing ring to that setting, if you forget you will get a blurred image.This lens follows the standard Nikon convention in respect to focusing and zooming, not a big deal for some people, but for some who take photos of fast action this is a good thing.Here's s slight rub though, occasionally when I have to set the focus for something with a distance that is < ~24", in the old days there would be some kind of focusing aid such as micro-prism(which has a shimmering effect to indicate out of focus images) or a split-image range-finder dot in the middle of the viewfinder to help determine the correct focus. But the rub is, those focusing aids are focal-length specific, and it might not work on the ultra short, wide angle lenses, the micro-prism may not shimmer or the lower half of the split image ranger-finder may be blacked out at 10mm, thus rendering it useless. In the old days of Nikon pro-film cameras, Nikon would offer interchangeable viewing screens specially tailored for various focal length lenses, but then it would add to the complexity, cost, and weight, probably not worth it.Since I am older, my eyesight is not what it used to be. for me it was a bit of an ordeal to get the correct focus especially in dimmer view finder on my D5200(I think it has to do with the "Live view" option), but when I put the camera on "live View" which is the mode when you need to do video(you can also do stills in this mode also), the D5200 displays an image on the LCD screen similar to the viewfinder on a P&S camera, The image can be enlarged by pressing the "+" button and turning the focus ring to until a sharp image is obtained, and then pressing "OK" to reset the screen to normal viewing. But it does take time and requires remembering to reset the focus setting to the infinity when you are done. My D40X doesn't have this feature so I will use this camera and lens combination sparingly.For fast changing situations and < ~24" distances, this lens is slow since you have to deal with manual focusing, and maybe the zooming ring. Also add to that low/dim-light conditions, it may slow the handling down even further. Bear in mind, that even the slowest automatic focusing is way faster than manual focusing.The front element of the lens extends beyond the lens body approximately "one-quarter of an inch"/~0.25"/~6mm, and for me, since I am an "all thumbs" guy, this is a fingerprint magnet, I have to remember to replace the front lens cap whenever I am not using the lens. It also prevents you from putting the lens front down when you have to put it down temporarily to change lenses, I did it only ONE time.Another minor problem is the factory lens cap is friction fit and it can easily inadvertently slip off the lens, and you won't notice it's gone until you need to remove it Unlike the Nikon lens caps which grip the threads for the screw-on filters, this lens has no screw-threads for filters. I always thought that having one of those string-like thingies to keep the lens and lens cap together was a bit tacky, but in this case I am seriously considering about getting one, there are times where there may not be a convenient pocket.Of course, it has no screw-threads this precludes the use of conventional screw-on filters. If you wish to use filters, there is a company that manufactures a filter-holder that attaches to the lens and uses conventional 4" square filters. Another quark is that you can insert the lens into the camera with the focusing and zoom scales on the bottom. In bright light this is no problem, but in low or dim light, but then we should be carrying one of those LED thumb flashlights for those situtaitons.Unlike Nikon's other non-pro lenses, which changes lengths significantly when zooming, this lens does not change the length significantly as you zoom, maybe a quarter(1/4) to three-eights(3/8) of an inch max, this is a non-issue for me, but some reviewers have mentioned it.OK there you have it, except for the few afore mentioned nits, this is a great lens, well worth the price. I would give a more personal use opinion, but this is my first fish-eye, so I am still trying to learn its capabilities of what it can, and can't do myself.I have used it for awhile now, and after the "gee wiz-bang" factor wears off, too much of good thing can set in, and could make your photos look boring. It is best to use it sparingly, but that is up to each individual to determine.Here are a photo of a Nikon 18-55mm and a Tokina 10-17mm lens, one is the comparison ie length. I have included a standard AA battery as a point of reference for size; and a photo taken wth the Tokina 10-17 at 10mm.I was thoroughly surprised at the physical size of the Tokina lens. It is approximately the size and weight of my Nikon 18-55 kit lens that originally came with my decade old D40X, very compact indeed.I physically measured the Tokina 10-17mm fish eye zoomMin. length(3.1"/77mm) @ 13mm focal length, Max. length (3.3"/84mm) @ 17mm length. The diameter is (2.8"/77mm) at the rubber gripMy reference 18-55mm Nikon kit lensMin. length(3.3"/84mm) @ 30mm length, Max. length(3.75"/95mm) @ 55mm length, The diameter is (3.8"/68mm) at the rubber grip

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

            I have been fortunate enough to have been shooting
            Foto's since the late 70's; copious cameras, lenses, formats, film to digi have culmunated into a fantastic life behind the lens. The Tokina phish eye is by far the most superlative wide angle lens I been blessed to work with. BH Photo were the photags go to buy
