On Tokina 17mm PRO/D810 combo.

2017-10-20 022-1 by 2017-10-20 022-1-2 by longzoom, on Flickrhotos/longzoom/]longzoom[/url], on Flickr.  There was not any geometrical corrections done, but cropping only. No significant signs of coma on this crop from extreme corner, but some CA presents.  LZ

Due to high resistance to flare/inner reflections, color delivering is very true and consistent, as well as contrast/microcontrast, with very low vignetting for such wide lens.  Old, but very high quality lens, I believe. So two more images with crops. Please note, it is my own opinion on my copy of Tokina 17mm f3.5 PRO AF lens.  THX!   LZ

Honestly, I think that Tokina's lenses are undervalued.    I'm currently using their 11-17/2.8 and love what it produces.   I think they get overlooked because they do not have VR/VC/OIS in their lenses.


This is a nice showcase of that 17mm.   Thanks for sharing.
