The Tokina AT-X 107 f/3.5-4.5 AF DX is a compact and light-weight fisheye zoom lens that gives the digital photographer an approximate 180° field of view with dramatic curvature of field or "fish-eye" effect. This perspective opens an entirely new expressions in photography. A full corner-to-corner image that packs everything around the subject makes this lens a useful item in street, landscape, architecture, underwater and 360° panorama photography.
Unlike other common fisheye lenses the Tokina AT-X 107 f/3.5-4.5 AF DX incorporates optical zoom of 10-17mm that makes this lens more unique in its category. You can adjust the framing and composition or play with different levels of perspective and bokeh by rotating the zoom ring. Usually with this super wide field of view unwanted objects easily creep into the frame. They can be eliminated by simply zooming in and out.
The Tokina AT-X 107 f/3.5-4.5 AF DX weights just 350g and can be carried comfortably during long trips thanks to its small size and light-weight. Its compact size and high quality are accomplished by incorporating one SD (Super-Low Dispersion) glass element in the optical design that effectively reduces the total number of lens elements.
The internal focus system of the Tokina AT-X 107 f/3.5-4.5 AF DX Fisheye allows photographer to shoot close up shots with a distance from camera sensor to the subject of just 14cm. While focusing this close water drops or other smudges may come into contact with the front of the lens. The WR (water-repellent) coating on the front element makes water drops bead up and roll off. It also makes cleaning off finger-prints and other smudges much easier compared to standard multi-coating.
