This fisheye lens is designed for cropped-frame cameras. It's very small in size and weight while providing a very wide field of view. Fisheye lenses are always a lot of fun, and the zoom feature has the effect of changing the fisheye effect from strong to subtle.
This zoom is fully usable on cropped frame cameras, which means you can zoom out to 10mm and not have any vignetting.
If you zoom out to 10mm on a full frame camera you will see the outline of the lens hood around the boarder of the image. (This vignetting happens with the Canon 8-15mm zoom fisheye on full frame cameras also, so this is not unique to Tokina).
Please note that fisheye lenses and ultra-wide
angle lenses are different things. This is mentioned here because we've had people ask for fisheye lenses when they're really looking for an ultra-wide angle lens. Fisheye lenses produce a circular effect. Lines will become curves. Wide angle lenses are trying to keep lines straight while including a very wide angle of view. If you are looking for an ultra wide angle lens, try something like the
Canon 10-22mm lens.
