Anyone use the Tokina 10-17 on a full frame?
Apr 11, 2008

I currently have the Peleng 8mm and really liked it when my 1DII was my main camera. Now that I mainly shoot with the 5D, I dont really care for the field of view - not to mention the optics arent really that great.

I was thinking about the Tokina 10-17mm instead. I have the 16-35L II for "serious" wide angle shots, but was looking for a fisheye to do fun stuff with. I liked the fact that I the Tokina zoomed and went wider than 15mm if needed.

You can actually see its built-in hood.

I believe Lee Jay posted samples from the Tokina on a 5D - it had a black "frame" made by the built-in hood.

I tried it on my 5D and sent it back. I found it useless because of its extreme field curvature (even on APS-C).

Just search for shaved 10-17mm on google. (most do it for the pano aspect)

Take any advice given on a forum with a grain a salt. (that includes mine). Nobody is
perfect, though many claim to be.

You don't mix up field curvature and distortion, do you?

I'm not sure what this means - is the whole frame (image plus the black area around it) the 5D sensor?

Yup.

Yes. Here, I've illuminated the hood so that you can see what's going on. This was taken at 10mm on the 5D:
