The Tokina AF DX 10-17mm f/3.5-4.5 Fisheye Zoom with Nikon Mount 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 10-17mm opens an entirely new dimension of photography. Unlike other fish-lenses, this lens gives a full corner-to-corner image.
The front element of the 10-17mm 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: This lens is designed to work with cameras that have an APS-C sized sensor only.
