Nikkor 16mm f/2.8 fisheye
Mar 8, 2012

Just curious what your experiences with this lens are. I'm currently using D300 with the 10.5mm f/2.8 DX fisheye. I notice the close focusing distance on the DX fisheye is much closer than the archaic 16mm FX fisheye. Other than that, it looks like the corners are very soft: http://www.kenrockwell.com/nikon/1628af.htm

Compared to the DX fisheye, which, frankly fares quite well even in the corners wide open.

Anyone else think this unit is long overdue for replacement?
