I love that lens on my D7000.  For what you are looking for you will love it, especailly for the money.  Took a large number of shots of the night sky last year at the Winter Star Party down in the Keys.

My only "complaint" is how people all over the internet keep saying "it's only manual focus".   Ugh.  Every try to take an out of focus shot with an 8mm fisheye on any camera?     It is almost impossible because the depth of field is so great.  Auto focus on a fisheye, IMO, is a complete waste of time.
