The?AF DX Fisheye-NIKKOR 10.5mm f/2.8G ED Lens?from Nikon provides an extreme 180? picture angle, equivalent to that of a 16mm fisheye lens in the 35mm format. It is compatible with Nikon DX format DSLR cameras and creates the distortive visual effect of a non-circular fisheye lens that fills the entire rectangular image frame.
With Nikon?s Close Range Correction System the lens elements are configured in a ?floating? design and each lens group moves independently to achieve focus. This ensures superior lens performance even when shooting at close distances. Also, an?Extra-low Dispersion glass element minimizes chromatic aberration for clear, natural colors, and an aspherical element reduces spherical aberrations. Super Integrated Lens Coating reduces flare and ghosting and a built-in petal shaped lens hood deflects stray light that can cause flare and provides a degree of protection for the lens? front element.
This G-type Nikkor lens is designed with no aperture rings, and offers easier operation. A minimum focus distance of 5.5? enables you to get very close to your subject and the rounded seven-blade diaphragm helps to create a natural look to out-of-focus highlights.
