    Wonderful fisheye

    Posted by Zenon Kozak on December 22, 2022

    Optically great fisheye, very sharp on Z7, even wide open. It has surpassed my expectations in that regard. However I don’t see myself using it at any focal lengths other than 15mm. I wish there was a prime option (the 16mm D won’t allow autofocus with FTZ), or at the very least, a focal length locking switch. I would gladly trade off the zoom feature for a wider aperture. I hope in the future there will be a 15mm 2.8 Z Fisheye.

    That aside, this is a wonderfully fun lens to use for concerts and events, and the odd architectural shot.

    Almost Perfect

    Posted by Patrick O'Connor on August 2, 2022

    Almost perfect. Sharper than any fisheye I've owned (several!). Love the versatility of having a circular and full-frame fisheye effect in the same lens. My only gripe is the borders at 8mm (see attached).

    WOW..! This is a beauty and amazingly sharp lens. I was very impressed. Your possibilities are endless with what you can do with this lens. I am often asked, ´´How did you?´´

    Cons: You may not want to use any other lens for awhile.

    Specialty Lens That Redefines Composition

    Posted by Scripps23 on July 18, 2017

    This new fisheye zoom lens, Nikon´s first, may be a specialty lens, but it can be used for many situations if you are willing to reconsider the parameters of composition. The lens is extreme sharp. Below is a circular image, the result of the lens´s 8mm focal length that provides a 180 degree field of view both horizontally and vertically. The below rectangular image, the result of the lens´s 15mm focal length, provides a 180 degree field of view only vertically.
