Asked by: Don
If you are using software that works with fish-eye lenses that lens can work. Otherwise use a wide lens that is not a fish eye.

Will this work with a Nikon D600?
Asked by: Erin
I don’t see why it would not. The lens fits a standard Nikon F Mount. Be aware that it’s manual focus lens only. Due to the extreme wide angle AE values are sometimes a bit off, which is easily corrected manually. It’s a fun lens to use.

I'm still curious as to why the aperture ring has to be turned all the way to f/22 for the Nikon F mount lens to work. Won't the image quality be compromised due to the smaller physical iris set in the lens?
Asked by: Anonymous
If you want AE on a Nikon, set the aperture to f/22. Then the camera will open to whatever stop is needed. That is how things work in Nikon land.
