In Topic: Tokina 10-17 FE zoom specs

10 January 2010 - 05:17 AM

Hi guys,

I was just about to buy a Tokina 10-17mm for my new 7D based on the positive endorsements on this site and others, however when I went to purchase the lense I was told that it was being discontinued and in replacement, Tokina had released an aspherical 12-24mm lense.

Does anyone have view or experience using the 12-24mm lense underwater and which (ie the 10-17mm or the 12-24mm) would be the best to purchase?

Kyle


Kyle, I was about to buy one also, what do you know about the 12x24 timeframe? I'm ready now if it will fit my camera and housing. Where did you get this info as I believe Tokina has a 12X24 now? I heard yesterday that the 12x24 is a great lens. Marilyn

From what I know you don;t need the extension ring at all but if you do, then the 20mm should be more than enough..otherwise vignetting would be the result.


Called Backscatter in Monterey Ca they recommend the NX Fisheye Dome Port with an SX Extension ring for the Tonika At-X 107 Dx Fisheye 10-17mm lens. Thinking I will go that way. Shooting Nikon D200 in SEA&SEA housing. Also recommended is the Nikon 12X24 but that is to expensive for me.

[size="4"][size="3"]OH! this is great subject. I'm want to expand my lens stock and want a wide angle or slightly fisheye type lens. Thought maybe the Tonika 11x16 and want some other suggestions. Shooting a D200 in a Sea and Sea housing with one strobe right now. I have loved my shots with 60 and 105 lenses and have added a 2X screw on the lens diopter. Now just want to be more artsy and do some more wide angle macro. Looks like your 10X17 is doing a good job. Any more hints? Marilyn
