Works great on full-frame camera

  • Excerpt: Just got this lens used from Adorama, and have tested it out on both my D300 and D610 in various situations, both in low and regular light. Results were very good on the D300 with some fringing which was easily corrected using Camera Raw in Photoshop. Image quality is very good, with good sharpness throughout.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
  • Cons: Some Fringing

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
  • Cons: Expensive

Fun specialty lens

  • 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.

Lots of fun!

  • 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!

Great FOV but could be even more.

EvidencePro, Nikon
30 July 2010
  • 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.
