I bought this product a few weeks ago for use with my Canon 7D crop body camera which I use for shooting in-water surf photography. After reading all the previous reviews it seemed that this would be the best fit and it hasn't dissapointed.

Very wide angle with little circular distortion on my crop body camera (haven't used on full frame). Sturdy design with fast autofocus. The variability of shooting from 10mm-17mm makes for a nice range when shooting different types of waves.

The only negative of this lens is the cap -that many other people referenced- which is not as snug and has the tendency to fall off when walking with the camera in your hand.

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

I love this fisheye, especially for underwater wide angle. I originally had the version with the lens hood, but sold it to purchase this version, which i can use with my 5D2. It's amazing the field of view on a ff camera! This lens is sharp, produces beautiful images. The only con would be the lens cap looks like it will only last a few uses before it falls off and is lost forever.

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

Compared to a pro series canon fisheye
-has a better MTF chart
-less than half the price
-minimal loss being 10-17 vs.canon 8-15

being a specialty lens for an active photographer, this hoodless version for my 6D's (and other full frame cameras)is perfect.

I find it to have high contrast(probably due to the wide angle), good color representation, super close macro abilities, and good sharpness throughout.

Superb sharpness and color

By Jrizle

from Sacramento ca.

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

I use this lens for my urban exploration and cityscape photography . This lens is well built and does well in low light . Very good sharpness with every picture . I does well for bracketing HDR images with very little CA . and you can't beat that it zooms in at 17mm for a good wide angle So it my favorite lens in the bag . Hands down..

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

    Initially I had mixed feelings about opting for this lens vs. the Canon 15mm fisheye lens; however, amidst some great user reviews, I decided to purchase. Glad I made that decision. Photos are super-sharp. 17mm fisheye provides one of the widest point of views out there. Great feature is the ability to zoom to 10mm that transitions it to a great wide-angle lens. Currently use with my underwater housing on Canon T3i and love it! Recommend to anyone.

      I needed a fisheye to use for my underwater and wave photos...it was the first fish-eye ever purchased. I found that a lot of other water photographers used the same one. Can't beat the price as compared to the Canon equivalent!

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

        Versatile for so many types of shooting. Purchased primarily for underwater shots of large critters such as sharks and dolphins, etc. but have found it great for landscape, wildlife (closeup encounters), portraits and even macro. Not a lens for all occasions but a great lens to use in the right applications. I've found so many more opportunities for it than I was expecting and really enjoying it. Some have mentioned it isn't marked where it lines up with the camera body but with a little experience or touch of paint it isn't a problem.

        Replaced a Tonkia 10-17 with attached hood (saltwater damage)
        Great on either cop or full sensor
        The front glass is curved, so you cannot put a filter on for protection

            This lens is insanely sharp. It does have a bit of C.A, but that is mostly manageable in lightroom (or whichever editor you choose). It does not have a hood, and the front element is exposed. There is no way to pt a fliter on it, so be careful. But it has incredible colors, an awesome range, and is so crisp.

                I purchased this lens for surf photography, but have yet to have the opportunity to use it for that yet. I have had the chance to play around with it to make a couple time lapse segments and I have also used it to photograph landscapes and the love the super wide angle. Seems to focus a little slow, but other than that its a great lens and I love it.

                I use the lens for both landscape and fun portraits on a Canon 50D. Great distortions at the wide end, and the field of view is quite amazing, you sometimes end up taking shots with your feet in them. A little slow to focus on my Canon 50D. Good fun.

                This is my first fish-eye lens and I love it. This is suitable for both APS-C and full frame camera's. On APS-C camera, vignetting is remarkably low. Distortion is large, but in a good way (it's a fisheye!).I also tried this one on my friend's 5D2 and it was great although only 15mm-17mm could be used for full frame. Only problem I found is that the lens do have a little bit high chromatic aberration associated with high contrasts.
