Question about Tokina 12-24mm f/4 Pro DX for Nikon

1 Answer

Does Tokina-12-24mmF/4Pro DX complies with Nikon-D3 FX Format

Nikon D-3 provides specific image size for DX lens..All Nikon lenses fit well.But for Tokina 12-24 mm F/4 I observe at 24 mm it becomes full frame while at other lens starting from 12 mm the DX format has become cumbersome which needs Adobe Photoshop intervention.Is this a lens problem or otherwise. Can any body guide me.

Barrel distortion like you describe can always be a problem, especially at ultra-wide focal lengths like yours at 12mm. Some of this can be compensated for in software... Adobe Photoshop CS2 and Elements do a reasonable job, IMO, Bibble Pro (www.bibblelabs.com) does even better, especially with the 3rd party plugins like Percy perspective correction. These are things we have to live with when we have smaller sensors and ultra-wide angle lenses. There is nothing wrong with your lens, you will probably find that this distortion is minimized if you use a longer focal length (say 14mm) and/or stop down the lens a bit.. try f8, wide angle lenses have huge depth of field.

    CS2 and Elements have a manual lens correction filter, once you know how much distortion your lens has at a particular focal length/stop you can save this out to be easily applied to all images. Bibble pro comes with a lens correction database which can automatically compensate for the distortions of your lens no matter what focal length/stop is used.

Tokinka 11-16 dropped in water


Unless you have a lens collimator and other equipment needed to ensure proper alignment when reassembling the lens, take it to a good camera shop and have a properly trained and equipped professional clean it.

Is there an adapter for Tokina Rmc 1 3.5-4.5 35-135mm Zoom Lens to fit to panasonic gh2 m4/3?


Perhaps. Tokina makes lenses with a variety of mounts. If the lens already has an m4/3 mount then you won't need an adapter at all. Some Tokina lenses take the "universal" T-mount. In this case remove the current mount and put on an m4/3 mount. If it has some other fixed mount, m4/3 adapters are available for some of them. It all goes back to the mount already on the lens.

Bought a Sigma DG 70-300mm 1:4-5.6 autofocus for my Nikon D40. When the lens is attached the settings get locked on MF. Is there anything I need to adjust to fix this problem? Charles


The Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 DG will not autofocus with the D40 since the lens does not feature an internal focusing motor (HSM). The D40 does not have an AF motor in the body and hence it can autofocus only with lenses featuring an integrated motor (eg. Nikon AF-S lenses, Sigma HSM lenses, Tokina DX II series etc). Unfortunately you can use the said lens only in MF mode.

Over exposure in cold weather


I suggest that you contact Tokina directly to find out what range of temperatures your lens is designed to work across.

Your expression "cold weather" is an imprecise term; where I am in the UK means at worst down to a few degrees below freezing and usually a bit above, but when I'm in Moscow they don't consider it to be cold until the temperature drops to around minus twenty-five Celsius.

Depending on where you are, your lens may simply be unable to cope with what you describe as cold weather but you won't know until you have the specifications from Tokina. If it turns out that your lens is not performing as intended, then the manufacturer will be able to suggest remedies to you.

Sorry I cannot be more specific but Tokina do not appear to have published the range of operating temperatures in the public domain.

I have a tokina SD 35-200mm it fits my nikon F301 will it be compatable with a nikon D 3000 dslr


Only one way to find out for certain, try it and see!

It will certainly fit onto your D3000 without causing it any harm but it probably won't work properly either. There's also the little problem of crop factors: your D3000 has a smaller imaging surface than your 35mm film camera. As a result, it only uses the middle of the image produced by this lens; it will appear as if the camera has a 50-300mm (52.5-300mm to be really accurate) lens fitted instead of the 35-200mmm.

I just bought the Tokina SD 12-24 F4 (IF) DX wide-angle lens for my D70, and it does not autofocus. I'm being told by the company I bought it from that i am past their 2 week return policy. Does this lens...


Only the MkII version of this lens has an autofocus motor built in, the MkI relies on a motor in the body of some Nikon AF SLRs to autofocus. The D70 does not have an inbuilt AF drive motor, so if you have the MkI lens then you can only use it in manual focus mode on your camera.

Lens hood BH-777


If such a thing exists, it would be on eBay or Froogle. However, that is so wide, I doubt a lens hood exists for it, as it would cause a lot of vignetting.
