I added this to my lens collection a few years ago and find that it is now my default lens. Before you make a judgement on it, go to Jessops (if I can say that here) and take a look through it. It'll blow your socks off! How often have you been in a room somewhere and just not been able to step back far enough to get enough in frame? Well with the 10.5 that'll never happen again. Likewise, outdoors this lens opens up a whole new world of picture-taking. Whenever I hand my camera to someone to look through with this lens on they gasp at the perspective it creates. Also, if you use Nikon's Capture Raw converter software you'll be able to change your fisheye pictures back to eyeball perspective if you wish. Further, if you use Nikon's Speedlight flash you can flip-down the integral wide-flash panel and the light is spread to cover (most of) the image.
Think 180 here I come and get it.

This is a made-for-digital fisheye lens with rapid focussing, incredible depth of field even at f/2.8, and relatively low chromatic aberration. Owners of Nikon Capture who shoot raw NEF footage can convert fisheye images taken with this lens to ultra-wide pan shots, although there is a trade-off of quality and size.
I've owned the DX fisheye for about a year now. Digital technology has now rescued what would traditionally be seen as an effect lens. Despite initial misgivings, this is one of the most useful lenses in my bag, and it's so small and light that it goes with me everywhere.
Fisheye lenses are 'uncorrected' ultra-wide angle lenses. Traditionally they come in two types. A 'true' fisheye gives a circular 360 degree image on the film or sensor, while a full frame fisheye gives about 180 degrees from corner to corner, but fills the entire frame. The Nikon 10.5 DX is full frame, which most people would agree is the more useful variant.
By 'uncorrected' we are talking about rectangular distortion. The lens is in fact heavily corrected for chromatic aberration, although the extreme angles by which light enters the lens mean that there will always be breakup at the edges. The rectangular distortion means that only straight lines which pass through the centre of the lens appear straight. All others are curved, with the curve becoming more prounounced the further you get from the centre.
'Classic' fisheye pictures give the impression that the world is about the size of a pingpong ball, as seen in the film 'Le Petit Prince' and on the cover of Mike Oldfield's 'Hergest Ridge'. As this is a rather specialised application, fisheyes were always seen as a special effect, and relatively few photographers owned one, while still fewer carried it with them.

Having read plenty of reviews including those by professional photographers, I took the plunge and wasn't disappointed. The colours are faithfully reproduced without going over the top, move the lens up and down to get a sense of what the end product will be. As for straightening out any distortion if so required, I found that the Spherize filter in Photoshop did the trick, with the lens correction filter as a second back up in really difficult cases. The photo's may not be optically correct but who cares they are exciting to look at.Although expensive it is the business and you will not be disappointed.Nikon 10.5MM F2.8G AF DX IF-ED FISHEYE-NIKKOR

This is a really fantastic lens. I've used it with my Nikon D70, and have got some fantastic results. It brings corner to corner 180° warped perspective views, which can be kept in their original format, or converted to ultra wide angle views with Nikon Capture software. The nature of the subject will determine whether the software needs to be used.
The lens in a pretty good value of money for a Nikkor lens, particularly when you consider that it can be used as a conventional wide angle, if you're happy to crop your images.
You won't regret getting this lens!

As usual trust in Nikon. The Fish-eye lens is superb, but it is strange to use. The first time I took it out I really wasn't mentally prepared for "what it can achieve", but I have gradually wrapped my ageing brain around it and "go for it- it's fun and fine and a pleasure to have in the camera bag".

The minute I put this lens on my camera I realised it is something special, it is smaller than it looks in the pictures on Amazon, surprisingly small in fact, but it oozes quality, solid build, quick and quite focus.

The initial results, which were just a few pictures taken quickly in the garden to make sure it works, were amazing, somehow, in bright sunshine, the trees and greenary of the garden had good contrast and colour, but the colours of the blue sky, with just a few clouds, came out really well too, in fact it struck me as being the most stunning blue sky I have ever managed to photograph, I have been really trying recently to concentrate on good overall exposure on such shots, and not doing well, but here it happened, without filters or even trying!

I think this lens will be an excellent landscape lens, yes there is distortion, its a fisheye, but it is surprisingly minimal unless you get right up close to something, I wish I had the imagination to use the effects it gives.

It is a little on the expensive side, but having used it I am surprised it did not cost a lot more, when I tried to buy it from a shop, they did not have any in stock and seemed to be of the opinion it was no longer made, so I quickly snapped one up online.
