Nikon AF Fisheye NIKKOR 16mm f/2.8D Overview

Capable of producing truly unique imagery, the AF Fisheye-NIKKOR 16mm f/2.8D from Nikon offers a distinct and creative look, characterized by noticeable distortion and a broad 180° angle of view. A 9.8" minimum focusing distance can be used to accentuate close-up subjects and the Close-Range Correction system helps to ensure consistent image quality throughout the entire focusing range. A Super Integrated Coating has been applied to individual elements, and helps to reduce flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color accuracy. Additionally, a built-in lens hood also cuts flare and offers some physical protection to the front element.

Fisheye prime is designed for FX-format Nikon F-mount cameras, however can also be used with DX models where it provides a 24mm equivalent focal length.
Full-frame coverage, 180° angle of view produces creatively distorted imagery and is well suited for interiors, sports, and nature applications.
Bright f/2.8 maximum aperture is suitable for photographing in difficult lighting conditions.
Super Integrated Coating has been applied to individual elements to suppress internal reflections, flare, and ghosting for improved contrast and color accuracy when working in strong lighting conditions.
Close-Range Correction system helps to maintain consistent image quality throughout the entire focusing range, from the minimum focusing distance of 9.8" to infinity.
Autofocus system is compatible with select Nikon DSLRs that support D-type lenses, and offers quick and precise focusing performance.

Autofocus is not supported by DSLRs lacking an autofocus motor, such as the D3000-series, D5000-series, D40, D40X, and D60, where the lens may be used with manual focus only.
Built-in petal-shaped hood helps prevent lens flare and also protects the front lens element.
Four rear filters are included: L37C UV, A2 light amber, B2 light blue, and 056 orange. One filter must be in place at all times.

I use this lens when I shot concert type of vents and Expo floors / Tradeshows. A lot of time I will put my camera on a monopod with the 16mm with a wireless remote and click away. The clients love the look, it is something they are not use to seeing. I think this lens is a great value for sure. Not priced to high. The images are super clear, the lens is small and easy to pack in my camera bag. I highly recommend this lens for the right content.

Great lens for artistic shots

I wasn't sure how much I would use Nikon's 16mm fisheye lens, but it is now one of my favorite lenses and use it for many different effects. Great lens for artistic and everyday use!

Great glass, poor focusing mechanism.

Great image, and rectilinear results are possible when using Imadio (I use the Photoshop plugin). However, the focusing mechanism is very imprecise. Jumps around quite a bit due to high friction. This is a problem in both autofocus and manual focus. It's a very old lens design, and is no longer competitive with other Nikon lenses.
