The Tokina Lens Fish Eye AT-X 10-17mm F3.5-4.5 is a fish-eye lens that gives the digital photographer an approximate 180° field of view with dramatic curvature of field or “fish-eye” effect. With this lens an entire view or vista can be captured, wider than the human eye can see. The AT-X 107 opens an entirely new dimension of photography. Unlike other fish-lenses, the AT-X 107 DX gives a full corner-to-corner image.
The front element of the Tokina Lens Fish Eye AT-X 10-17mm F3.5-4.5 has a newly formulated WR or “Water Repellent” optical coating on the glass. This new coating makes marks such as spots left by water or finger-prints much easier to clean than standard multi-coating.**
The rear optical group of the lens contains 1 SD (Super-Low Dispersion) glass element to reduce the number of elements (pieces of glass) in the optical design in order to make the lens more compact, light-weight, and faster focusing.
Note 1: This lens is designed to work with cameras that have an APS-C sized sensor only.
Note 2: Autofocus with this lens is not supported with Nikon DSLRs that do not have a focus motor in the camera body.
Focus mode switch (Canon mount): If the focus mode switch near the mount of the lens is switched in [AF] position (Fig.1), manually rotating the focus ring could put a burden on the gears inside the lens that may cause malfunctioning or damages.
When rotating the focus ring manually, please be sure to make the focus mode switch [MF] position (Fig.2).
Our remarkable ability to remember quotes from practically any movie, and our skill in catering to almost any person in South Africa.
The latter is the harder of the two, because A) we haven't met everyone in the R of SA and 2) our personal tastes can hardly be used as a benchmark for things other people may enjoy.
Still, through sheer determination and never-miss-an-episode viewings of 7de Laan, we like to think we hit the proverbial nail on the head more often than not.
And in the almost unfathomable event that we're completely wrong and nothing on our cyber-shelves appeals to you, we'd like to leave you with the following gem from Lord of the Rings:
