The AF Fisheye-NIKKOR 16mm f/2.8D Lens from Nikon is an extreme wide-angle lens that is compatible with full-frame (FX) format cameras. It provides a 180º angle of view that fills the image frame, making it ideal for use with interior subjects as well as broad outdoor subjects and even portraiture with intentionally distorted features. The fast f/2.8 maximum aperture makes it suitable for low-light photography as well as control over your focal plane for use with shallow depth of field and selective focus applications.

The Close Range Correction (CRC) system enables sharper, more detailed image quality when focusing on subjects as close as 9.8" / 25cm. The Super Integrated Coating (SIC) is a multi-layer coating on the lens elements that helps to provide a reduction in lens flare and ghosting while improving overall contrast and image quality. The lens is compact and particularly lightweight, providing a built-in lens hood to deflect unwanted light and protect the lens' front element. It also includes 4 bayonet-type filters that attach to the rear of the lens.

This lens' autofocus function is compatible with Nikon DSLRs featuring a built-in autofocus motor. It will not support auto focusing when used with certain DSLRs that do not have an integrated focus motor, such as the D40, D40x, D60, D3000, D3100, D3200, D3300, D5000, D5100, D5200, D5300.

    Some lenses are simply fun to even look through -- let alone take pictures with. And the Nikon 16mm f2.8D Autofocus is squarely in that category: FUN! Unlike earlier fisheyes that produced circular images, the fullframe version does what its name implies -- it fills the frame, from top to bottom, left to right and the corners. The resulting image is stretched into the corners, and if you want to center to be undistorted, you must hold the camera absolutely level. Used properly, and it takes an FX-format body to take full advantage, it essentially captures just about everything in front of you. I used it the other day to photograph the western horizon criss-crossed with multiple contrails, using it in a newspaper to illustrate the science behind condensation creating ice crystals at high altitudea and to introduce the concept of the adiapatic lapse rate as a function of temperature change. In other uese, you can crowd in closely with a group anc create a sense of intimacy -- hold it at arm's length ofer a group of just-victorius football players and you can feel the excitement. Shoot from the foul line under the basket and the resulting photo is a "6th man's" viewpoint. The Nikon lens is typical of its brand -- sharp, extremely well made and professional quality. But it is small, light and unobtrusive. Depth of field is from inches to infinity at f/11. It's a special use optic -- but when you need a wide field -- it delivers. BTW - It's wider than the 14mm end of the 14-24mm.

    I got this lens for a different look of images to go into my portfolio of images... and that different look it offers. If i would have had to do it again I probably would have spent a little more and got the 14-24 f2.8 Personally I like the straight lines over the fisheye's curved lines.

    Pros:
    small, light and quick focus. unique look and definable fisheye look

    Cons:
    more of a novelty lens, only a couple of shots per session is what i use this for.

        Comments about Nikon AF Fisheye-NIKKOR 16mm f/2.8D Lens:

        After a familiarization period I took this lens on vacation to the desert. the shots were breathtaking and perspectives take on a whole new world when you are in canyons versus in open landscapes. Horizon perspectives can easily be modified. The lens took distortion free photos of stars and the milky way. I keep this lens close for pretty much any outdoor shooting now. One con - had to put tape in the lens hood to keep the hood on. Nikon has to fix this minor but irritating issue.

                      Great for instant panoramas. Just came back from photographing at a fabulous scenic overlook which was actually well over 180º. I was nearly able to get the entire view in one shot. With two shots, I could easily get the whole amazing view. Great color and sharpness. I also love the internal filter system. I had never seen anything like that.

                          Comments about Nikon AF Fisheye-NIKKOR 16mm f/2.8D Lens:

                          I hesitated a long time over the price of a lens I thought would have limited use.

                          Not so! I'll probably use it more than any other one lens. I try to take pictures of all my plantings a few times a year. With this lens I can get all the trees in an area into one picture. One very attractive picture. Everyone who sees what it can do has a project for it, from interiors to site surveys for Environmental Impact Reports. It may be months before I can even think about playing with the fun stuff I saw in the user pictures.

                          There is no comparison between this lens and the Nikon 17-35 (more than adequate until you take one photo with the fisheye). The quality is so good that I'll crop a photo rather than change lenses in our dusty outdoors. For the test, I used my baseline settings (Shutter priority, 1/160) for handheld. The lens will do much better once I learn to adjust the settings. Some of the bending in the trees is wind, not the lens :)

                            lens does what I wanted--sharp all the way through --am happy with it.
                            Used it on my Nikon D600

                            I recently purchased the Fisheye 16mm f/2.8 lens from B&H Photo. Right out of the box, this lens took some very sharp awesome picture's. I took my first picture's near sunset on our beach in Hawaii. The sharpness and color was outstanding. I use a D800 and a D600 camera with this lens for fantastic photo's. The only watch out is to protect the lens from bumps, finger prints etc. as it has no protective filter. Any smudge on the lens will show up big time on the photo.

                                I bought this lense last month, and found that I could have so much fun with it that I wish I had bought it earlier. In terms of quality, the photos I took with it are sharp at every corner of the photos, produced with mu Nikon D800E.

                                Sharp lense with the fisheye distortion. Exactly what I was looking for, 180 degree coverage with the fisheye look for special applications. Very pleased, now wish Nikon would make a true 10mm fx lens.

                                  I use the 16mm for better depth of field in landscapes. I performs as expected as long as you understand the purpose of the lens.

                                  After using it for the past two weeks I would by it again based on the current performance.

                                  If you have never owned a fisheye, try this lens. It is very small and light, it makes makes your dslr a feather weight, but it's a great lens for those times you need a very ,very wide perspective.
