I've got the Nikon Ais 16/2.8. It's an OK lens, especially for USD$375 used. Very low flare from sun in the shot. I use it for these kind of shots:

I think of it as a "use at F/11 if possible" type lens. Many supposedly in-the-know folks say the older Nikon 16/3.5 is a little "sharper". I'd like it if Zeiss made a full-frame fisheye.

I've also got a Sigma 8mm/3.5 circular fisheye. I'd have gotten a used Nikon 8mm/2.8, but they're up to USD$3000 used. The Sigma seems to be sharp in the center 2/3rds or so, softer at the edges.
