    I'm looking into buying a fisheye lens for my Nikon D3000 to add a creative sort of feel to certain photographs pretty much.

    I know about the Nikon 10.5mm Fisheye, but $600 is too expensive for me for a single lens I think. There's also this Zenitar 16mm Fisheye, but I'm not sure I want to spend $250 or so on a non-Nikon lens. I also don't want a fisheye attachment, as I hear they're absolute crap.

    Any recommendations for a fisheye lens for my D3000. Preferably auto-focus and under $300.

    Many thanks.

    This link is about as good as it gets for $350 on a DX sensor. True 180° but no AF on a D3000.

    16mm (24 mm apparent FOV) will substantially lessen the fisheye effect when mounted on a DX sensored camera like the D3000.

    As it is AF isn't all that important with a fisheye because they have tons of DOF.

    This lens is made in China and marketed under a variety of different brand names, Vivitar being another.
