Nikon 16mm f/2.8 overview

  • 1Description

The AF Fisheye-NIKKOR 16mm f/2.8D Lens from Nikon is an extreme wide-angle lens that is compatible with full-frame (FX) format cameras. It provides a 180º angle of view that fills the image frame, making it ideal for use with interior subjects as well as broad outdoor subjects and even portraiture with intentionally distorted features. The fast f/2.8 maximum aperture makes it suitable for low-light photography as well as control over your focal plane for use with shallow depth of field and selective focus applications.

The Close Range Correction (CRC) system enables sharper, more detailed image quality when focusing on subjects as close as 9.8" / 25cm. The Super Integrated Coating (SIC) is a multi-layer coating on the lens elements that helps to provide a reduction in lens flare and ghosting while improving overall contrast and image quality. The lens is compact and particularly lightweight, providing a built-in lens hood to deflect unwanted light and protect the lens' front element. It also includes 4 bayonet-type filters that attach to the rear of the lens.

This lens' autofocus function is compatible with Nikon DSLRs featuring a built-in autofocus motor. It will not support auto focusing when used with certain DSLRs that do not have an integrated focus motor, such as the D40, D40x, D60, D3000, D3100, D3200, D3300, D5000, D5100, D5200, D5300.

    Nikon 16mm f/2.8 reviews

    AF Fisheye-NIKKOR 16mm f/2.8D Lens is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 137.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun, fun, fun This is a fun lens. Period. I find fisheyes to be an excellent choice, not only for the seemingly obvious subjects, but also for looking at 'standard' scenes in a less-than standard way. When mounted on my F6, with it's large viewfinder, a whole new world appears. As is usually noted regarding fisheyes, one must take care to protect the front element from scuffing and damage. Also, watch those toes, as your feet are often included in the frame. I would like to see a better fitting lens cap, as the one supplied seems a little loose. I find using a rubber band running length wise seems to work fine to add some extra security.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't go wrong with a fisheye purchase This is a very small, sturdy and lightweight lens. I believe that everyone from pro sports photographers to interior/architectural photographers to hobbyists can benefit from having this unusual lens in his/her bag. It simply expands your creative envelope that much more. This lens is acceptably sharp at or near wide open and is very contrasty. A lot of reviews for this lens cite the slip on cap as a negative; I can see where it will probably end up being a nuisance, however mine still fits snuggly, but I would probably carry a rubberband to help keep the cap on when not in use. Don't think twice about throwing down the cash for this lens--you won't regret ANY of the images you get with it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nikon quality and suprisingly affordable Years ago I bought a 16mm f2.8 lens from an independent lens maker because it was cheaper. It was acceptably sharp at f8, but only sharp in the middle at f2.8. I don't need a lens with a 180-degree angle of view very often, so it was good enough. Recently I photographed an event of great importance to my boss with the off-brand 16mm and I had to send him the jpg file with an explination as to why the image was not very sharp. The next day I ordered the Nikon 16mm f2.8. The Nikkor is sharper at f2.8 than the other lens is at any aperture. I should have bought the Nikkor lens years ago.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nikon 16mm f/2.8D Autofocus Fisheye Lens Great lense for wide panos. Full 180 degree field of view. Only minor correction needed in Photoshop when horizon line is straight. Quick auto focus, tack sharp. There is a learning curve, but well worth the investment. Other methods I have utilized, such as PCE lenses and stitching of multiple, overlaping images have not yielded the same high quality.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Watch Your Toes My comments are based on using the lens on a Nikon D700. I am shooting three styles with this lens: CLOSE-UP ART SHOTS -- If you're used to shooting a 10.5mm fisheye on a DX body, you will be a little disappointed by the minimum focusing distance (10.2 as opposed to 5.5) I've read that you can improve this by removing the rear filter, but I haven't tried it yet. The best compositions for me have been scenes with strong horizontal or vertical elements. LANDSCAPES -- You will get a fresh new perspective on scenes by shooting them with the 16mm fisheye. To avoid excess distortion, keep the focal plane level and parallel to the subject. ARCHITECTURE -- As with landscapes, a whole new perspective is offered with this lens, but you have to watch your shooting angles to avoid excessive distortion. De-fishing some images in post-processing will provide excellent results with an extremely wide view.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nikon Fisheye AF 16mm f 2.8 I have been using Nikon equipment to shoot skateboard photography for 25 odd years now. I thought it was about time to up grade my manual 16mm lens for a fully integrated lens. I have now used it to shoot 2 major events and the lens has been a knock out success. Its so nice to have the flash systems integrate with the lens aperture setting etc, and if need be change from Manual setting to one of the cameras other modes if need be. But more so the tonal quality and sharpness of the new lens is awesome. I'm very happy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible Fisheye I am using this for an upcoming wedding to capture the whole church. I tested it at the church and could not believe the quality out of the lens. Beautiful images - not corny fisheye pictures. I also shot the wedding dress in a tight tight bathroom and it turned out gorgeous. I have many plans for this lens - including full field / court sports.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Got Resolution! You won't run out of resolution with this optic. Even wide open it's a homerun. If you're fussy and want 4X6 prints (feet that is), use f/5.6. You'd think you'd get flare with such a wide optic. But....I won't say more but simply upload a shot I took from Muley Point of Goosenecks Park and Monument Valley with my lower resolution D700. Results with the D800E are equally impressive.
