    Do all the pictures come out with that black border that I've seen in photos w/ the lens?

    No, most of the time that's an effect like the 'binocular' pattern you see on television when the character is supposed to be watching something through binoculars.

    This:

    is an uncropped image, taken with the Nikon 10.5mm fisheye.

    It can occur if you're using certain ultra-fisheyes (4.5mm) or a DX fisheye such as the Nikon 10.5 on an FX camera.

    Most fisheyes aren't zooms.. in fact there are very, very few that are. (The only one that comes to mind is the Tokina 10-17)


    There are some fisheyes that give that look, the ones that don't tend to say something about "full frame fisheye", the others are called "circular"
