Nikon 10.5mm f/2.8G ED DX Fisheye Nikkor Lens USA

You Pay: $689.00

WARNING: Not compatible with "full-frame" (35mm size) cameras.

Product Highlights
  • Non-Circular Fisheye Image
  • Equivalent to 16mm On a 35mm Camera
  • Developed for Use with Nikon DX Format
  • Ultra-wide Picture Angle of 180 Degrees

The Nikon 10.5mm f/2.8G ED DX Fisheye Nikkor Lens provides digital SLR camera users an extreme picture angle, equivalent to that of a 16mm fisheye lens on a 35mm [135] format camera.

The lens is targeted at Nikon DX Format digital SLR camera users who seek the unique visual effects a full-frame fisheye lens lends to landscape and other shots, to taking close-ups, or when shooting within vehicles or other tight interiors. This 10.5mm fisheye is a DX-frame-filling fisheye lens, which means it fills the entire rectangular image with a curvy, distorted image and sees 180° from corner to corner diagonally. It is not a circular image.

Optical and close-range focusing performance are both optimized for Nikon DX Format digital SLR cameras. The ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass element minimizes chromatic aberration for clear, natural colors, and the rounded seven-blade diaphragm opening ensures a natural look to out-of-focus elements.

This G-type Nikkor lens is designed with no aperture rings, and offers easier, virtually mistake-free operation because the aperture does not need to be set to minimum.

Note! DX lenses are NOT recommended for use with 35mm, "full-frame" FX digital SLR cameras, or APS SLR cameras. Auto Focus is not supported by Nikon cameras that do not have auto focus motor in the camera body.

Fast, ultra-wide angle G-type DX Nikkor is designed exclusively for use with Nikon digital SLR models.
Equivalent to 16mm focal length on a 35mm.
Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass element minimizes chromatic aberration.
Close-Range Correction (CRC) provides high performance for sharper images when taking pictures up close.
Delivers high-performance focus at extremely close range; a minimum focus distance of 5.5" (14 cm) -- only 1.2" (3 cm) from the lens front.
The rounded diaphragm opening (7 blades) makes out-of-focus elements appear more natural.
Nikon D-type design provides precise distance information for flash and ambient light exposure processes.
Fixed flower-shape barrel-type hood greatly reduces stray light.

    I can't say enough good things about it. Optical qual/IQ is fantastic. Images are sharp, and I've heard complaints about CAs but I tooks some pictures with the sun shining thru some trees without any noticable fringing. Anything beyond 2 ft might as well be inifinity, so it's very easy to use this lens. I only have flare issues when the light is shining across the lens sideways, otherwise it is VERY well controlled (magical Nikon coatings?).

    Physically the lens seems well made, tho the hood is plastic (i think on the 16mm it's metal). It is very compact and light weight (anybody complaining about weight has probably only ever used a 18-55mm kit lens).

    You can use this lens to exagerate proportions/distortion, you can use it to accentuate/isolate objects, you can use it if you have ultra-short working distances to your subject, and you can use it in a manner that somewhat masks the distortion (which is what I tried to do in the attached images).

    I considered the Tokina for its zoom capability, but it wasn't as "fast" and supposedly had a little more CA (despite also using a low-dispersion element). The Tokina has a mad following for underwater use, so if you're going diving, probably consider that one first for availability of focus rings and domes. Neither have AF-S/SWM.

    The outer element seems to be magnet for dust. I just keep my Rocket blower with me and I'm all set.

    I used to make a manual panaromic with my camera and now with this fish eye, i now can make it a real wide angle magic and really can now use it to my optimum requirement of 180 degree. I use a software to make the edges straight and i am sure this is an wonderful toy, i ever had it before.

          Comments about Nikon 10.5mm f/2.8G ED DX Fisheye Nikkor Lens:

          I have a Nikon 16mm fisheye for FX, a Bower 8mm for FX/DX and this one. This does a great job, like the 16mm. An important accessory for these is Fisheye-Hemi software from Image Trends. This was the primary reason for adding a third fisheye to my collection. The software does a great job of removing excess curving in the image, when desired.

            I originally bought this lens for skateboard photography. Fast at 2.8 and really produces great results. You'll also be surprised at the other uses... interior shots (getting the entire room), interesting group portraits, I also love taking "selfies" with it because you can get a large group in the pic OR if it's just you, you get a full view of the background.

                  The lens is excellent fo photographing scenes that have natural curves in them already. For example subway stations in Washington, DC, and any domes.
                  Landscape shots also work well.
                  The autofocus is fast, picture quality good. Haven't found a downside yet

                      My wife got this lens for me for Christmas. It was on my BH wish list, but I never expected in would await me under the tree. I have only used it a couple of times, but it is an awesome addition to my collection. Not only is it a great "special effects" lens, but it's a great wide angle lens for landscapes. The nice part about this lens is that it is small, yet powerful, and it's easy to use and have fun with. If you're looking for that extra special lens to help you stand out, this is the one. You won't regret it!

                      Comments about Nikon 10.5mm f/2.8G ED DX Fisheye Nikkor Lens:

                      I can't say enough good things about it. Optical qual/IQ is fantastic. Images are sharp, and I've heard complaints about CAs but I tooks some pictures with the sun shining thru some trees without any noticable fringing. Anything beyond 2 ft might as well be inifinity, so it's very easy to use this lens. I only have flare issues when the light is shining across the lens sideways, otherwise it is VERY well controlled (magical Nikon coatings?).

                      Physically the lens seems well made, tho the hood is plastic (i think on the 16mm it's metal). It is very compact and light weight (anybody complaining about weight has probably only ever used a 18-55mm kit lens).

                      You can use this lens to exagerate proportions/distortion, you can use it to accentuate/isolate objects, you can use it if you have ultra-short working distances to your subject, and you can use it in a manner that somewhat masks the distortion (which is what I tried to do in the attached images).

                      I considered the Tokina for its zoom capability, but it wasn't as "fast" and supposedly had a little more CA (despite also using a low-dispersion element). The Tokina has a mad following for underwater use, so if you're going diving, probably consider that one first for availability of focus rings and domes. Neither have AF-S/SWM.

                      The outer element seems to be magnet for dust. I just keep my Rocket blower with me and I'm all set.

                        No other manufacturer makes a fish-eye lens of this quality for a APS-C (Nikon DX) sensor camera. Beautiful, frame-filling wide angle photos Fast (f2.8). Nikon Capture knows the lens characteristics and can straighten out the photo for a 180 degree wide-angle picture. Get one, you won't be sorry.

                                Comments about Nikon 10.5mm f/2.8G ED DX Fisheye Nikkor Lens:

                                I have been eye a fish-eye for the past year and I have finally decided to settle for a DX fisheye from Nikon.

                                I shoot as a hobby and is considering switching to a full frame sensor, but why did I get a DX lens? The reason why I chose a DX lens is because, new FX cameras have DX mode which easily allows you to switch to and from. A FX version of the fish-eye would be too wide for my D90 so a DX was perfect for me. I did not want to skim out on 15mm DX fisheye because why settle when it is a specialty lens?

                                The lens has some weight to it compared to my 35mm 1.8; it definitely feels more sturdy for sure. The build is better as well. With the 5 year warranty on the lens, you can't beat that.

                                Buy it from B&H and buy the lens if you are on the fence!!!

                                I will be buy from B&H, it was quick shipping and awesome customer service. Love it and coming back.
