  • Nikon 10.5mm f/2.8G ED AF DX Fisheye Nikkor

    10 out of 10 points and recommended
    Small, sharp, predictable, well built

    This lens, like all fish-eye lens, is all about understanding where it will be at its best. I love to use it in big spaces. The bigger the space, the less noticeable the lens will be without editing. The fish-eye effect is great, when that is what you want, but when you want to squeeze as much of the Grand Canyon into one picture, there is no better way. When space is limited, the fish-eye will have maximum noticeable distortion on the image. As many have already said, there is software to remove that distortion, if that is what you want. If you buy this lens, you must experiment with it so you can get a feel for where is shines. Many people judge the fish-eye by the pictures they have seen that only exploit the obvious. Skate park pictures are one.
