Great lens to be creative with, definitely a keeper!

Summary: First off, this lens is not very big at all. About the same size as the 35mm prime nikkor lens. The pictures make it look big. It is also solid, it's compact yet has a good feel to it. The pictures it takes are quite different than I'm used to seeing and even though it's built for a crop sensor camera it is super wide! The focus is pretty smooth and the pictures are usually sharp.
Summary: This lens is so much fun! Especially when the kids get involved, they love when you get real close and distort their faces. The fisheye has created a lot of laughs! Also it is very useful in most of the photography I shoot cause I like to use wide angle shots to get full rainbows and skies full of lightning! It's fun for all ages!
Summary: I've had this lens since I purchased a D200. I need it in my work to capture a wide FOV from a driver's eye point while driving (mirror to mirror). Excellent lens for that purpose. Sharp and good contrast. I now have a D3 and I learned that other photographers have "shaved" the lens hood off the 10.5mm to increase the FOV to over 180 degrees horizontally on FX cameras. I did that just last week and it works great.
