Tokina AF17mm f/3.5 PRO

Tokina AF17mm f/3.5 PRO lens

Full frame sized image

Lenses that create APS-C sized image are designed for digital only. They cannot be used on cameras that have image sensor larger than the APS-C format. These lenses are not suitable for film cameras either.


No Ultrasonic AF

Lenses with ultrasonic focusing mechanism tend to be quiter and faster than traditionally focusing lenses.


No stepping motor AF

Lenses with stepping motor focusing mechanism are better for contrast based focusing, and are quiter and faster than traditionally focusing lenses.


One or more Low Dispersion lens element is used

Low Dispersion lens elements help to reduce chromatic aberration.


Not stabilized

Image stabilization helps to reduce blur caused by hand shake, especially at high focal length or in low light situations. Image stabilization can give 1 to 3 stop advantage over none stabilized lens, based on the reciprocal rule.


Metal mount

Cheaper lenses are usually equipped with plastic mount, while more expensive, professional lenses have metal mount. In general, metal mounts are more durable, and a good thing to have when lenses are changed a lot. When a camera is used mainly with one lens, the material of the lens mount is not that important.


Internal Focusing

Internally focusing lenses don't change their size while setting focus.


The front lens is fixed

The fixed front lens is not rotating during zoom and/or focusing. This allows the photographer to use petal shaped lens hood. Fixed front lenses also make the use of polarization filters a lot easier.


No drop-in filter support

Drop-in filters are used in those lenses where either the front lens is too large, or the field of view doesn't permit the use of traditional filters at the front of the lens. Usually bright tele and ultra-wide angle lenses support this filter type.

An angle of view wider than human eyesight! From the moment you look through your viewfinder, this outstanding AT-X optic will give you a dramatic new perspective on the world.

This ultra wide-angle lens utilizes premium-quality HLD (High refraction Low Dispersion) glass elements created by Hoya Corporation exclusively for Tokina, as well as an all-glass molded aspherical lens element that creates a more compact optical design and provides even illumination across the whole film plane. The floating element system maintains high resolution and contrast from infinity to its minimum focusing distance of 10 inches (0.25 meters). This lens works perfectly with digital SLR or film camera bodies.
