Nikon 10.5mm f/2.8 overview

  • 1Description

The AF DX Fisheye-NIKKOR 10.5mm f/2.8G ED Lens from Nikon provides an extreme 180º picture angle, equivalent to that of a 16mm fisheye lens in the 35mm format. It is compatible with Nikon DX format DSLR cameras and creates the distortive visual effect of a non-circular fisheye lens that fills the entire rectangular image frame.

With Nikon's Close Range Correction System the lens elements are configured in a "floating" design and each lens group moves independently to achieve focus. This ensures superior lens performance even when shooting at close distances. Also, an Extra-low Dispersion glass element minimizes chromatic aberration for clear, natural colors, and an aspherical element reduces spherical aberrations. Super Integrated Lens Coating reduces flare and ghosting and a built-in petal shaped lens hood deflects stray light that can cause flare and provides a degree of protection for the lens' front element.

This G-type Nikkor lens is designed with no aperture rings, and offers easier operation. A minimum focus distance of 5.5" enables you to get very close to your subject and the rounded seven-blade diaphragm helps to create a natural look to out-of-focus highlights.

Fast, fisheye-type ultra-wide angle lens is designed exclusively for use with Nikon DX format DSLR cameras and provides a non-circular 180º perspective.
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 7-blade diaphragm opening makes out-of-focus elements appear more natural.
Fixed petal-shape lens hood greatly reduces stray light.

    Nikon 10.5mm f/2.8 reviews

    AF DX Fisheye-NIKKOR 10.5mm f/2.8G ED Lens is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 270.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from More Useful Than You Might Think Just start packing this lens around on your camera and you will be surprised at the number of places you can use this lens. A couple tips I've picked up: -- Every pic should have a subject, get super close to an object to have it's size differentail show from the background...creates a 3D look to the photo. -- Make sure to google Fisheye-hemi. Doesn't make the image rectilinear, but makes people look normal in the photo. This product will make the lens much more useful. -- It takes practice to orient the lens to get the best picture. Be patient and practice and look at other people's fisheye pics for inspiration. Nice piece of glass.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great fun lens I bought this lens for a trip to Southeast Asia to use with my D90, as a fun addition to the 18-200mm lens which I use for most other purposes. The fisheye lens enabled me to get some great shots of landscapes like the Mekong River or city skylines. It also works great for taking pics of big buildings from close distance, such as ancient temple ruins. The fisheye effect is awesome, and I don't plan on doing any de-fishing now or in the future. Pictures turn out razor sharp edge to edge (much better than the 18-200mm), and the lens is fairly fast for indoor shots. The lens is not cheap, but a lot of fun, and I am glad I got it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely piece of glass Bought this lens for landscape photography and it is so wide that it takes some getting accustomed to. It is relatively quick, fast to focus, and doesn't seem to cause purple haze around details. Interior shots, at least the ones I shot, are wildly curved leaving me to conclude that shooting with a point of interest in the center of the photo is the way to go. I used DxO software to unbend those shots and the lesson for me was to shoot with the right lens for the right photo and not try to fix my choice of lens with software. Still, exterior shots are great and I'm catching some very nice New Mexico dawns and sunsets.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very sharp and fast lens. I use this lens for inside architecture as well as dramatic landscape. I have also found that you can get some very amusing pics of the pets. The ultra wide angle allows you to get extremely close to an object. This gives your photos very surreal results. I also found this lens very useful for video. We were doing the zip line in Costa Rica and it gave a wonderful view of the experience. One thing you have to watch out of for are camera straps, your feet or your shadow. The other thing I have noticed with this lens is that I have to bump up the exposure comp to allow for a better exposure.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fisheye with unbelievable clarity! I bought this as a play lens to add to the arsenal for my D300 and it did not disappoint. I used to have a cheap fisheye adapter that screwed on the end of a kit lens, but the edge clarity was really bad, not to mention the vignetting... Anyway, this lens is nothing like that. It's super wide and nearly crystal clear from edge to edge. Plus, it's so small, you can almost throw in your pocket. Now I love to use it for weddings, artsy portraits and creative detail shots. Bottom line, if you'd like to add a fun lens to your kit and be confident that the quality of your images won't suffer, you should definitely consider the 10.5mm 2.8 fisheye.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice extreme w/a I use this lens for the few 360 virtual tours I do for clients. I've been renting one, but decided to finally buy one. Yes, you do get extreme distortion, but its a 10.5, what do you expect? Chromatic Aberration is an issue with this lens, but that's what you get with extreme w/a lenses. This is more of a feature of digital CCD's than actual lenses. It is also easily fixed in P/S. The auto feature doesn't cure it, but you can fine tune it in lens correction. If you're looking for an extreme wide angle lens for a Nikon dx body, get this one. You cannot put a filter on this lens, but I'm not sure how you could anyway without making it a much larger.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A wonderful lens This fisheye is wonderful fun, and useful too. I bought it to take 360 panoramic Virtual Tour movies with my Nikon D90. Just 8 shots will do the business: six horizontal shots, in portrait orientation, to cover the full circle, and one 90 straight up, one 90 straight down, the so called zenith and nadir shots. With a solid tripod, good panoramic head with click stops every 60, the job is easily done, time after time, and quickly. Just 8 shots are easy for the software to stitch accurately. The Virtual Tour is smooth, distortion free, nicely saturated, and sharp. As well, for single photos this lens opens a whole new world to explore. It takes care and imagination to compose a daring single shot, but the results can be brilliant. The price is right...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Choice I purchased this lens primarily for skateboarding although I will be using it for shooting other pics as well. It only took a few shots before I figured out how awesome and easy this lens works. The amazing close ups I've been looking for with 180 degrees and crystal clear photos. I am a photographer for a skateboard team in my area and all the kids on the team are really pumped at the quality of the pictures. This lens was recommended to me by a professional skateboard photographer and I have already recommended it to others. It is an awesome companion for my D5100
