Nikon 8-15mm f/3.5-4.5 overview

  • 1Description

Delivering a creative and distinct look, the AF-S Fisheye NIKKOR 8-15mm f/3.5-4.5E ED from Nikon is a fisheye zoom designed for FX-format F-mount DSLRs. At the wide end of the zoom range, the lens produces a circular field of view, which gradually covers the entire full frame by the long end of the focal length range. Benefitting the extreme angle of view, the optical design makes use of two aspherical elements and three extra low-dispersion elements to control spherical and chromatic aberrations throughout the zoom range for improved sharpness, clarity, and color accuracy. Also, Nano Crystal and Super Integrated Coatings have been applied to suppress flare and ghosting for improved contrast in strong lighting conditions.

Complementing the distinct optical attributes, the lens also uses a Silent Wave Motor that produces fast, smooth, and quiet autofocus performance, along with the ability to manually override focus at any time. An electromagnetic diaphragm is also featured for greater exposure control stability when working with faster continuous shooting rates.

Unique fisheye zoom is designed for FX-format Nikon F-mount DSLRs, and can also be used on DX models where it provides a 12-22.5mm equivalent focal length range.
Circular fisheye design at the wide end of the zoom range transitions to full-frame coverage by the long end of focal length range.
Three extra-low dispersion glass elements are used in the optical construction to reduce a variety of chromatic aberrations and color fringing for a high degree of clarity and color neutrality.
Two aspherical elements are featured to control spherical aberrations for notable sharpness and resolution.
Nano Crystal and Super Integrated Coatings have been applied to lens elements to minimize surface and internal reflections for a marked reduction in lens flare and ghosting.
Fluorine coating on exposed elements affords protection to the optical system.
Silent Wave Motor affords quick, quiet, and precise autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus override. An internal focusing design is also used, where only the internal lens groups are moved during focusing, to maintain the overall length of the lens during use and to promote faster focusing speeds.
Specialized electromagnetic aperture mechanism provides greater exposure control stability that is especially beneficial when working with fast continuous shooting rates.

Nikon 8-15mm f/3.5-4.5 reviews

AF-S Fisheye NIKKOR 8-15mm f/3.5-4.5E ED Lens is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive I took delivery of mine earlier this week. Have been using it daily in both urban and rural settings. All with great results. Only negative I've seen so far is a distinctive blue haze on the circular horizon at 8mm when shooting upwards towards the sky. Hasn't happened with every shot, but is noticeable and difficult to rectify if generated. Very versatile to have both the full-frame coverage at 15mm and the complete circle at 8mm. Been able to capture lots of angles, both in and outside, and little planets are made easier to produce in pp, if that's your thing. Very much recommended if in the market for a fisheye, or looking for a new way ton express your vision.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replaces my two other fisheyes Instead of carrying my beloved fisheye Nikkors 8mm f/2.8 (huge size and circular image) and the 16mm f/3.5 (full frame) I can now carry only this one that provides both kinds of fisheye images.� Very well built, except for the plastic hood/cover that may become loose with wear. It's a shame Nikon does not make those metallic front covers anymore. Images are very sharp. Regarding image quality, the only annoying characteristic of this lens is the thick blue rim around the circular images. I had to make a specific procedure to remove it in Photoshop. The old 8mm f/2.8 images also have the blue rim, but not so thick. Anyway it is a keeper. Very glad I bought it 2 weeks ago. See the images �taken one week ago in Manhattan.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Two (or three) lenses in one Very happy with this lens. Much better quality at 8mm than the Sigma prime. Slightly better at 15mm than the Nikon prime. If you have an DX camera you can use it to replace the Nikon 10.5mm lens as well. Lens is nicely light and pretty compact. In a perfect world it would have a little faster aperture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First fisheye: why did I wait? This is the first fisheye lens I have owned. I alway thought they were specialty lenses for very special purposes. I just spent a week in Japan on holiday and I rarely took this lens off. Buildings, trees, scenery, everything was beautiful when photographed through this astounding lens. I used it mostly at 15 mm, but on occasion took the lens shade off and took true circular fisheye images. I visited "World Square" in Nikko, an amazing collection of miniature buildings from around the world. This lens was perfect for up-close pictures of these amazing works of art. Then I went off to see Izumo. I used the lens for both architecture and landscapes. I'm so happy I discovered this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Two lenses for the price of one Not obvious until you use this lens is that you are getting a ultra wide angle 10-15mm zoom lens as well as an 8mm true fisheye lens. The clever removable hood allows for this transition from an ultra wide to a fisheye lens. Relatively small and lightweight FX lens and it is seldom going to be left at home on photo outings. It is great for outdoor use but also the best single lens for photographing interiors as with a cathedral or temple without need for stitching multiple images together. At this time Nikon has provided a 27 x 29mm slot for holding a filter at the back of the lens but neither Nikon nor anyone else is making such filters. With their 16mm f/2.8 fisheye lens, Nikon also made a set of slip in filters for the lens. Serious omission to have not added a $20 set of filters to a $1,250 lens or even provided them as an accessory.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Lens, Ive owned other fisheye lenses from Nikon, this truly is the best one yet, its built like a tank, it has zoom and its very can even do macro shots with it!!.....
Date published: 2017-06-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow, what a lens! I have only wanted a fisheye lens for about 50 years.� Don't wait that long folks, now that Nikkor has produced this little jewel of a zoom.� I have only just begun to experiment with it.� It's going to be fun to use indoors & out.� The front element requires careful handling.� I recommend that anyone thinking about buying this lens should also consider buying Nikon's CL-M3 Case.� I added padding in the bottom, placed the lens hood on top of that, placed a good quality microfiber cloth between the lens hood & front element of the lens, & followed all of that with a Tadashi Fisheye filter (in its own bag).� This all fits nice & snug & should give one piece of mind that this special lens will be protected from mayhem. B&H shows a Ruggard Lens Case 3.5x3.5 as an accessory for this lens.� The Ruggard case, though very nice, will not accommodate the lens hood, nor the Tadashi Filter.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Unexpectedly Sharp lens I used for the wedding with D810 right after I received the copy. I was so surprised that the lens focuses fast and was sharp, over my expectation. Highly recommended. One thing is that you have be very careful not to harm the lens front element when you shoot wide when you have to take off lens hood, though it is a nature of the fisheye.
