It works, for a price

  • Excerpt: used as a front lens cap on my 10.5mm fisheye lens. It works but is way too expensive. Its the only cap around so if you need the cap sadly you have to drop 30$
  • Pros: Fits, Works

Fun specialty lens

Adorama

  • Excerpt: I got this lens for night skies, particularly the Milky Way. It's great for that. I'm still learning what else it's good for; it's a very specialized lens. It is good for shooting large things from close up (such as inside the dome of a telescope) and gets some interesting close ups of small items (like flowers) while still getting a lot of their environment. Buildings and horizon lines are tricky because the distortion is so noticable.
  • Pros: Unique Shots

Awesome

  • Summary: I bought this lens to use underwater with an aquatech housing and shoot surfing photos. I haven't had a chance to use it much yet but from the few times I used it, the only down side to it is the focusing speed. I believe it should be a AF-S lens in order to focus faster but I don't think Nikon makes a fisheye with that focus system. There is a way to go around this and that is setting it to manual focus and placing the focus in near infinity or infinity.

Great addition to the bag

  • Excerpt: This is a great lens to have in your bag. If you're like me, you won't use it a lot, but when you do, you will get some fantastic images. There is a fair amount of color fringing going on. That's why I gave it four stars instead of five. But never mind that. Its not a big problem. Just get one and take some cool shots! In my experience, the key to making this lens really work is to get super-close to your subject. Then get closer.

so far so good

  • Excerpt: Well. so far there isnt anything wrong with this lens. hard to keep clean. i wouldnt say its 180 degree view. maybe 165-170 degree? not a big deal for me. its enough. its a lot less wide (physically) than i thought (from the picture), so in a way its a little more compact than other lenses. feels really solid. i think you can probably play baseball with it or use it as a hammer but i havent tried that yet. for the people with cameras that dont have internal motors.
  • Pros: Durable, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Attracts dust

Performs As Expected

WayneF, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: In the limited time I have owned this lens I have used it only once. I acquired it because I capture a lot of museum displays, of large objects in cramped spaces and I expect that this lens will supplement the angle of view of my 10-24mm conventional lens. When I did use the lens it performed as expected in terms of the images that it captured.
  • Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
