The new Tokina AT-X 107 DX is a full-frame fish-eye lens that gives the photographer a 180&Mac176; field of view with dramatic curvature of field or “fish-eye” effect. With this lens an entire view or vista can be captured, wider than the human eye can see. The AT-X 107 opens an entirely new dimension of photography.
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.**
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.

Robust, Good Optics, zoom adjustment, Well priced
tends to over expose at times
I bought this Lens some time ago. As with my other 3 Tokina Lenses i had no doubt this one would be the best pick. It was! I am happy with the optics other than to say that it tends to over expose on my D7000 by nearly up to 2 stops.
It is a solid Piece of Lens and the only one that has a zoom adjustment. Bonus! Not that you would want to zoom in but rather zoom out most the time. But there had been the few ocassion where i did end up making use of this function.
It is not a Full frame Lens. It is a designated DX Lens but can be used on a full frame if having the shades shaved off.
I can recommend it.
