      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!

      got this fisheye to go with my canon 7D because it works well with 1.6 crop sensor. The pictures are amazing i use it to shoot waves with my sol water housing and absolutely love it!

        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.

        Underwater & landscape
        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 was only until the Canon launch it. She is the best cost benefit there. Excellent image quality.

            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.

              This is an amazing lens. You do need to know that it is a specialized lens, but is almost perfect. There are times when CA can be present, but if you are careful, Lightroom can fix it when it does show up.

                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.

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

                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.
