Photo Zone

The Nikkor AF 10.5mm f/2.8G ED DX Fisheye is a very decent performer with a very high resolution for most of the image frame. The primary weaknesses are chromatic aberrations (color shadows at the borders) and purple fringing (color blooming). Lateral CAs can be reduced rather easily via imaging tools but this is more difficult with PF. If the Nikkor and the Tokina 10-17mm are a guidance these weaknesses seem to be rather typical for this lens class. The high degree of barrel distortion is naturally a feature to enjoy and not a bug. The build quality of the lens is very high and regarding its super-compact size and low weight it should easily find its niche in your photo bag. At around 650€/US$ the Nikkor isn’t exactly a cheap lens though. READ FULL REVIEW

This is a very special $610 full-frame fisheye lens for Nikon’s DX digital SLR cameras. It becomes much more practical when you use DxO or Fisheye-Hemi software to stretch the images back into something useful. I only bought my 10.5mm when I got this software. READ FULL REVIEW
