Tokina AT-X 17 AF PRO 17mm f/3.5

(5 customer reviews)

The Tokina AT-X 17 AF PRO 17mm f/3.5 is a camera glass that provides a wide angle view. It has autofocus capabilities and can also be used manually. The lens is made up of several elements and has a coating to improve image quality. The build quality is good and the lens has a decent resolution. There are alternative lenses available in the market with similar features. The bokeh or background blur produced by this lens is average. The aperture is f/3.5 which is not the brightest in its category. The lens takes some time to manufacture and is not readily available.

The Tokina AT-X 17 AF PRO 17mm f/3.5 camera lens is a great option for anyone looking for a high-quality wide-angle lens that won’t break the bank. Despite being a little weighty, this lens produces fantastic results, with sharp and clear images that are perfect for landscapes, architecture, and other wide-angle shots. The build quality is also impressive, with a solid, metal construction that feels like it could last a lifetime.

The main downside of this lens is its weight, which can be a little tiring after extended use. Additionally, the autofocus can be a bit slow and noisy, which may be a concern for some users. Finally, while the image quality is excellent overall, there is some distortion and vignetting at the edges of the frame, which may require some post-processing to correct.

Overall, I would highly recommend the Tokina AT-X 17 AF PRO 17mm f/3.5 camera lens to anyone in the market for a wide-angle lens. It’s a great alternative to more expensive Canon lenses, and offers excellent image quality and build quality for the price. While it’s not a perfect lens, it’s certainly one that any enthusiast or professional photographer should consider adding to their kit.

    A very sharp lens I bought this lens to shoot underwater images. It has a very good reputation for underwater photography. Despite being a dx,some photographers will use it on their full frame bodies. I have enjoyed taking very nice and sharp images with my sony a6300, coupled with a metabones 4 adapter. Its ability for very close focusing marks it as unique since many lenses do not offer this feature.

    Great lens Although this lens is a little weighty, I got fantastic results from it. I would recommend to anyone as a much cheaper option to canon lenses.
