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

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.

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

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.

Tokina AF 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6 owners manual

What about it, and why do you want it ? It is simplicity itself - attach the lens to the camera, switch on the camera, frame the subject and shoot.

I have a Nikon D90 and I purchased a Tokina AT-X 24-200 a couple of weeks ago and the combo has been working great. However, today when i went to take some photos the shutter release would not work. U

What does the FEE or error message displayed on an SLR camera mean... The link is to a Nikon error page which explains what could cause this error. Is the lens set to the smallest aperture? If not this would cause this error.

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.

I have a 12-24mm tokina

Err99 is very difficult to diagnose without having the camera/lens looked at by a good reapirer who can actually extract more detailed error messages from within the camera itself that are more helpful than just the "Err99" message that shows on screen. Err99 could mean 100 different problems as it is a global Canon code error... Some of the causes could be:

  • Lens/camera electrical contact failure
  • Lens circuit (AF or IS) failure
  • Camera electronic circuit failure (see below)
  • Battery or Grip problems
  • Broken or stuck lens aperture diaphragm – Note: this most often happens only when the lens is completely stopped down. If you have questions about the lens, shoot it both wide open and stopped down. If ERR99 appears when stopped down, its an aperture issue.
  • Older third-party lens with incompatible electronics
  • Jammed or damaged camera shutter curtain
  • Mis-formatted or damaged card
  • Damaged or corroded cell within camera battery
  • Failure of the sequence motor—according to precision this is unusual, but does occur, especially in older cameras that have been through a shutter replacement.
  • Corroded battery or camera contacts
  • Incorrectly mounted battery grip, particularly if it’s too loose
  • Camera/hot shoe electrical contact failure
  • Moisture condensation within camera or lens (or corrosion occurring days or weeks after moisture exposure)

  • If none of the above seem to fix the problem, your next best shot is to seek repair (if it is worth doing so).
