Based on the example image, I'm guessing you have the Samyang 8mm f/3.5 fisheye. It is a diagonal (full frame) fisheye on DX, and a cropped circular fisheye on FX (like the Z 7). Sadly, the image circle is a bit too big for the FX format.

The lens is also marketed under other names, like Rokinon.

I've compared it to the Laowa 9mm (non-fisheye) here:
