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.

Can I use TOKINA lens 28mm-210 lens with this Nikon body or can I use with other NIKON body D 700?


Tokina makes their lenses with a variety of mounts. A lens with Canon mount, for example, won't fit onto a Nikon. Assuming you get the lens with a Nikon mount, then yes, you can use it with a D70 and with a D700.

Can Nikon F3 lenses be used on a digitial Nikon body?


Yes and no. The lenses will fit with no problem.

On DX cameras (everything except the D700 and the D3 series) the smaller sensor causes the lenses to seem longer. A 50mm lens on a digital body will give you about the same image as a 75mm lens would on a film body.

Older non-CPU lenses do not have the electronics to communicate with a newer camera. On some of these cameras you won't be able to use the camera's light meter.

What is the difference between DX and FX formats


The FX format uses a sensor very close in size to a frame of traditional 35mm film, about 36mm by 24mm. The DX format uses a smaller sensor, about 24mm by 18mm. The smaller sensor allows the camera to be smaller (compact point&shoot cameras use sensors much smaller) and also are less expensive.

The most visible effect of the difference is the so-called lens multiplier. The smaller sensor uses only the central portion of the image projected by the lens, in effect multiplying the focal length of the lens. In this case, a 100mm lens attached to a DX camera will give just about the same picture you would get with a 150mm lens attached to a FX camera.

In general, FX lenses will work fine on DX cameras, taking into account the lens multiplier mentioned above. DX lenses will not work properly on FX cameras, since the smaller DX lens won't always capture the full images needed to cover the larger FX sensor. Some FX cameras automatically switch to DX mode when it detects a DX lens.

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 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.

I have a tokina 500mm f8 lens with a P/K mount


This will depend on the lens you have now.

Some Tokina lenses have a universal fitting, with a separate adaptor mount for each camera body they fit. Its usually the last 5 - 10mm of the mount, and its identifiable by a second release button, which allows the specific fitting to be changed. If you have one of those, you just need the Nikon fitting.

If the P/K mount is an integral part of the lens, you have a couple of choices.
(1) You could get an engineering shop to alter the mount. This costs a lot and probably isn't worth the hassle. (It might be better to sell your lens and buy the nikon equivalent).
(2) You could use an adaptor. These are readily available on eBay.
For example:
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Pentax-PK-K-Lens-to-Nikon-AI-AF-F-camera-mount-Adapter_W0QQitemZ150400359906QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK_Photography_CameraLenses_Lens_caps_hoods_adaptors_ET?hash=item23048f5de2

Note that just because it has the right (i.e. Nikon) fitting, it doesn't mean that it will necessarily have full functionality on the body you intend to use with it.

Some Nikon bodies are "extremely fussy" about which lenses they can use, and it might be worth evaluating whether your proposed solution would work with the camera body you have in mind before committing to any sort of expenditure.
