Nikon 10.5 Fisheye

Erik T. Ward "TheWARDen", Amazon
6 March 2014
  • Summary: I simply can't say enough about this lens. I'd wanted it for a long time but just could never justify the money. Then I rented it and went on a shoot, and shortly after we started shooting it was pretty much decided I had to buy it. After several days of use in various shooting environments and then taking a good look at the images it was easy to get an understanding of how and where the fisheye distorted the image, which then allowed me, to an extent, to shoot w/ that...

Bending the rules....

Callunzo, Adorama

  • Excerpt: Love my new specialty glass for fun photos that "bend" trees, buildings and exaggerate my subject matter. This is not an everyday lens but if you have some extra cash for some excellent glass to add to your Nikon lens collection, you can't go wrong here. Don't be afraid to get really close...art is the result.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Good in low light, Lightweight

Fun, expensive but cool lens

Rick Stanton, Amazon

  • Summary: I've been shooting long enough to still lament the death of Kodachrome 25 and I'm a dedicated Nikon user who laments the theft of his F4 30 years ago. I'm currently shooting a D7100 and lamenting the fact it's smarter than me but as an art director by trade I've resolved myself to bracket the heck out of everything and just worry about light and composition. Photoshop is not an option either so lenses matter most.

Great fun lens

KeithM, Adorama

  • Excerpt: I'm a big fan of wide and ultra wide angle lenses, and always wanted a linier fisheye for that something extra. This lens delivers. Super sharp, with amazing DOF. I can put it in my pocket when I walk around for that different perspective so it usually comes along when I go out to shoot. I often use it vertically for doorways, windows and buildings. the fisheye effect can be easily corrected in Capture NX2 for great ultra wide shots if desired.

Fun and useful lens

foodwriter, Nikon

  • Summary: I always wanted a fisheye, but dropping close to seven hundred bucks on a lens that would only be used occasionally made me hesitate. When I finally decided to drop the hammer (and the credit card) I decided that if I bought it, I would make sure to use it often. I use only prime lenses on my D7000, I started photography back in the '70s when zooms were not that good, and when I go out to shoot I only use the one lens on my camera.

Fun lens

Mountain Woman, Adorama
26 November 2013
  • Excerpt: This was a great buy. It's bright and fast-focusing, and the images are sharp to the edges. We are using this mostly for landscape photography. So far, it's perfect for capturing that single flower close-up with the background landscape in good focus.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
