AF Fisheye-Nikkor 16mm f/2.8D
Great effect - Great lens
I am amazed every time I use this lens. I keep this lens tucked in my bag for almost every outing. Sometimes I find myself surrounded by closed in spaces or an area that has converging lines.This is when I bring this lens out it makes these spaces open up and provide a spectacular effect. The lens is a fish eye so straight lines curve and with a tillt of the lens will add drama to the photo. This lens is sharp and easy to use. The small light lens makes it a welcome addition to any camera bag. Best used on FX cameras.

been hesitant about purchasing a fisheye as it always seem more of a gimick than a tool. I have found it to be a great tool in the lens and creative arsenal. Very surprising results with landscapes as well as interesting results shooting golf courses and action. Tack sharp with tremendous clarity in depth of field if desired

I can't believe it's a fisheye?
I've been involved with Nikon equipment for a long time. My favorite lens is my 16 mm fisheye. I purchased it used in NYC back in the 80's. I even use my fisheye as a trade mark for some wedding shots for clients. Five of the photographs displayed were taken with my D700 & Nikkor 16 mm Fisheye.
The Wedding photograph was taken with my D200 & Nikkor 10.5 mm Fisheye.

A great lens
While not a lens I use a great deal, it has a vital place in my photographic arsenal. Stunningly sharp, light, and fun. On my D700 it compliments my 10.5mm on my D2X. This lens will remain with me for a very long time.

Sharp and Contrasty
The 16mm 180 degree fisheye is an amazingly sharp and contrasty lens. I have no problem including the sun in my photos, because this lens has no flare or ghosting problems! This lens on my D3 or D700 performs incredibly at f8 or f11. It is great for tight interiors where my AFS 14-24mm can't cover everything. I modified the wide angle lens caps to fit better and keep dust out by using self adhesive felt between the inside ridges of the plastic cap.
The photo is a Full frame D700 shot of the inside of a 35 in. by 35 in. Light tent filled with around a hundred AF 35mm 2.0 D lenses shot from 2 feet away from the middle of the group with no lens correction software adjustments.
