Great for Architecture and large group photography without distortion.

Summary: The Nikon 15 3.5 is a specialized lens which is unique in that the lens is a rectilinear lens, ie the lens has no discernable pincushion or barrel distortion, This makes the lens valuable for architectural photography and photographing large groups in small spaces. Used at creative angles the lens has unlimited creative possibilities.
Great lens, with a real value for quality and build.

Summary: This is a fantastic lens that is an ultra wide rectalinear type. It does not distort like most other superwide angle lenses. Works well on Nikon Pro digital SLR bodies, D200, D300, D300s, D700, D3, D3s , D3x and others that will work with non cpu lenses. Focus is smooth, and the build is very robust. One of my favorites, especially with interior room images.
Summary: I am a german user, and write in german language, sorry. Das ist ein Objektiv der Superlative, exzellent verarbeitet und eine erstklassige optische leistung. Arbeitet mit allen Nikons, analog und digital, perfekt mit F3 oder D700.
Summary: I found this lens more helpfull than modern nikkor 14-24mm lens. 15mm is much lighter so better for landscaping than 1kg 14-24mm. very nice design and nice feeling goes from the lens if you have it in your hands. big advantage of the 15mm nikkor is that it is most wide rectilinear lens of all nikkors you are able to buy (really most wide is 13mm ais nikkor, but almost impossible to purchase one, if you will find it for sale, let me know, please).
Summary: This is an amazing lens hat opens wide and wild and makes our world bigger longer and deeper without any distortion. Actually you won't need to focus ( almost ). Amazing to a big first plane ( very close ) with everything behind in focus. Architecture becomes a different thing with it. Use your creativity to landscapes, portraits and everything else... But take care ! As you can not use a UV protection filter, the first element is always exposed to risks.
