Nikon 16mm f/2.8 Fisheye vs. Sigma for D800
Jul 18, 2012

I would like to get a fisheye lens to mess around with. I've got the 14-24 f/2.8 but that's a different beast.

Has anyone experienced both the Sigma 15mm f/2.8 and the Nikon 16mm f/2.8 enough to make a recommendation. The Sigma is $200 lower but with the D800, slight faults could become big.

Also, a guy here in Seattle wants to sell me his Nikon 16mm Fisheye for $550 but it has a very light 2mm scratch on the lens about 14mm from the center. He says he can't reproduce it in an image no matter what he does. Would that be a safe way to go? That's a $350 savings off a new one.

Nikon D800
