Good wide angle lenses for Nikon F: Nikon 12-24mm f4 or Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8

Good macro lenses: Tamron 90mm f2.8 VC macro

Goood Fisheye: AF 10.5mm f2.8 G Fisheye (on your camera it will be manual focus only, but since on a fisheye really everything is in focus, its not much of a problem)

FIsheye lenses can grow tiresome, so, the 12-24 range is more-versatile. I agree with Solarflare: the Tamron 90mm AF-SP is a good macro lens, I have had an older one for 15 years, still my go-to macro.

I like telephoto pictures of travel sites, so 70-200mm f/4, for carry weight, is my suggestion.

I'm not into ukltra-wides, so my suggestions in that area would be to doi research on-line, and see what other people like about three or four specific lenses.

Yeah, fish eye is a hit'n miss a lot of times. There are apps you can install on your phone to simulate fish eye lens to get a feel if the fish eye is something for you. i'd say install a fish eye app to see if you like it before buying a dedicated fish eye lens.

This is my recommendation with your budget.

Wide Angle: Nikon 12-24 f/4 or Nikon 10-24 f/3.5-4.5

Macro: Nikon 40 2.8G or 60 2.8G

Telephoto: Nikon 70-200 f/4 VR

Those are really good set of lenses, I just bought the 70-200 f/4 and it's fantastic.

For fisheye lenses, eh...I'd honestly skip it. Like others have mentioned, they are a hit and miss. There is a time and a place for a fish eye but they are few and far in between. The ultra wide angle lense will be far more versatile than a fish eye in my opinion.

Agree with everything said above. Though Tamron has a new 10-24 coming out, based on their recent successes I'd expect it to be the best option available. For fisheye, yes they are limiting, but you can get a rokinon 8mm for cheap on eBay, and imo it's a better lens than the Nikon 10.5, as it produces a less fishy image within the exact same 180 degree field of view.

Same FOV but "less fishy"? How can a FE lens be "less fishy"?

Here's one of the relevant explanatory from Ken: "
I kid you not: even as-shot, the Pro-Optic covers more than the Nikon 10.5mm, and almost as much as the exotic Nikon 8mm that costs ten times as much, and the Pro-Optic fits it all into a rectangle.

What I really love about the projection of the Pro-Optic is how the sides and corners render the subject much larger than the other fisheyes. I find this much more useful than squashing the sides into useless mush.

The Pro-Optic 8mm squashes the sides much less and is as sharp or sharper there than the Nikon lenses."

Once you literally SEE the pictures, it's true...the Pro-Optic looks less "squished...less fishy... and...IMHO, better.

Agree, it is better. Especially when you try defishing. I've tried them both using fisheye hemi and the samyang produces much better results.
