NEW Tokina AT-X 107 NH hood removed
Posted Image
The Tokina AT-X 107 NH 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. The AT-X 107 NH only differs from the AT-X 107 DX in that the built-in hood as been removed allowing for a wider image area and more coverage on full-frame sensor (FX) cameras.*

The front element of the AT-X 107 DX 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. With the built-in hood removed the lens also fits in a wider variety of underwater housings.

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.

*Full corner to corner image can be achieved on an FX camera between approx. 14.5-17MM depending on the camera model, at 10-14MM there is a semi-circular view.

Any recommendation as to which model of the 10-17mm one should get for UW use? Camera would be a Nikon D7000. Thanks.

Both version wil work the same for the D7000. But I knd of like the added protection that the hood offers when you put the lens down, with the latest version you can't put it down unless you have the lens cap on, small thing but hey it matters to me :huh:

I donīt know, I would choose the old one, as you can always cut/sand down the hood later. But maybe in the new one they disengaged the autodestroy mode! :huh:

I understood that the hood is removable, like on the Sigma 15mm but I could be wrong. The lens is also supposed to be smaller, lighter and focus faster.
Probably not a huge difference between the lenses, but I would be inclined to wait and see till they are available and some people have tried the new one. May also be able to get an old one at a better price.
