Tokina AT-X 107 DX AF 10-17mm ƒ/3.5-4.5 Fish-EyeThe AT-X 107 DX AF also has a convenient autofocus-to-manual-focus switch ergonomically built in at the base of the lens, which was easy to find when I did feel the need to change to manual focus quickly. To reduce sun glare, there’s an internal hood, as a thread-on lens hood would block the angle of vision in a fish-eye lens, and the AT-X 107 DX AF feels very light at 12.3 ounces.

Tokina also has added a newly formulated WP coating for easier water spot and fingerprint mark removal. This came in handy for me, as I did some coastal shooting, and had to get pretty close to the spray of the surf in order to get a shot with more ocean and less beach.

Tokina developed the AT-X 107 DX AF 10-17mm ƒ/3.5-4.5 for APS-C sensors, and currently it’s available in mounts for Canon EOS and Nikon digital SLRs. Estimated Street Price: $525. Tokina AT-X 107 DX AF 10-17mm ƒ/3.5-4.5 Fish-Eye
