BH #NI81535ED • MFR #20066
Nikon AF-S Fisheye NIKKOR 8-15mm f/3.5-4.5E ED Lens
Key Features
  • F-Mount Lens/FX Format
  • Aperture Range: f/3.5 to f/29
  • Three Extra Low-Dispersion Elements
  • Two Aspherical Elements
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.

Nikon AF-S Fisheye NIKKOR 8-15mm f/3.5-4.5E E... Overview

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.

I bought this lens primarily to shoot marine life in an underwater housing. I have seen results from other underwater photographers, and the wide angle macro images are stunning. Can't wait to get it underwater in the Maldives this fall.

This thing is just extraordinary! The first major photo I took with this lens was a bolt of lightning that hit near by. It totally distorted the plasma bolts. WOW! A lens of this type has it's applications for sure. Yet when it does it, it does it really really well... Money well spent.

Just received my Nikon 8-15mm Fisheye lens. Haven't used it a lot yet. The 8mm circular photo is cool. I do not think this will be an everyday lens, but I know it will be a lot of fun.

Understand what you're getting

This is a great lens: sharp as a tack, light-weight, and fun. But you need to know what you're buying. It will exaggerate perspective and skew parallels to the max. But that's what it's supposed to do! It's not just a wide-angle - - - it's super wide zooming to fish-eye. Make sure you understand that, and you'll love it.

Great lens!

I am a great lover of wide angle lense. i just love this ones ability to go from round to rectangle. I sometimes use it for closeups it gives a whole new perspective on the object and the world around you.

Finally a sharp ultrawide

I tested my many ultrawide lenses and was disappointed at how soft most of them were. I was looking for a lens that was good for underwater photography and milky way images. I was most disappointed with the Tokina 10-17 which is in every underwater photographers kit. I have two copies of that lens and both are pretty disappointing. This Nikon is an incredible lens, easily the best fisheye I have owned (I have had the old manual 16mm Nikkor, the 10.5 Nikkor, Tokina 10-17, Sea and Sea 12mm and Sigma 4.5)

Is the listed 180-degree field of view the diagonal field of view at 15mm?

I believe the field of view in the 8mm circular image and the diagonal of the 15mm image are both 180 degrees. A costly but versatile and high quality lens.
