    would like some general feedback on the nokon 10.5 fish eye lens....
    would love to see some pics too.

    is there a sigma equivalent?
    I have the 18-70mm but would like to play around with this lens .
    if you have it do you use it that often?
    thanks
    :cheers:

    It is a full frame fisheye lens with 180 degree angle of view measured across the diagonal of the frame. It is comparable to the 16mm fisheye Nikon makes for 35mm cameras. No, I don't use it often. No there is no Sigma equivalent. I think Tokina has a fisheye zoom, however. Here are a couple of images.

    My son loves this lens.... but then he's very much into what are almost abstract images...... lots of clouds and close-ups.

    It can be a fun lens for what it does - and it's good at what it does - question is "Are you going to use it enough to get your money's worth?"

    I would categorize a fisheye lens as a specialty lens, but that's not to say you can't shoot as you normally would, just with a fisheye lens on your camera. I don't personally own one, but I'm sure it's a damn fun lens to use. I've heard good things about Nikon's 10.5, and also the 16mm Nikon one, but I'd say only get the 16mm one if you shoot full-frame (film or D3).
