Highly recommend the non-chipped rokinon 8mm for a fisheye. AF on a fisheye is silly IMHO. The DOF is so crazy deep it's hard to get something out of focus if you try! There is also no reason to buy a chipped version for a D7100, the metering will work as good as any metering is going to work with a fisheye lens. You use the ring rather than the wheel. The build quality is very good. Here is a shot I took with mine, it's sharp across the frame and I like the projection used by this lens better than a "true" fisheye. Plus they are $300.
