Nikon AF DX Fisheye-NIKKOR 10.5mm f/2.8G ED Lens

The Nikon 10.5mm f/2.8G ED DX Fisheye Nikkor Lens provides digital SLR camera users an extreme picture angle, equivalent to that of a 16mm fisheye lens on a 35mm format camera. This lens is targeted at Nikon DX Format digital SLR camera users who seek the unique visual effects a full-frame fisheye lens lends to landscape and other shots, to taking close-ups, or when shooting within vehicles or other tight interiors. This 10.5mm fisheye is a DX-frame-filling fisheye lens, which means it fills the entire rectangular image with a curvy, distorted image and sees 180-degree from corner to corner diagonally. It is not a circular image. Optical and close-range focusing performance are both optimized for Nikon DX Format digital SLR cameras. The ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass element minimizes chromatic aberration for clear, natural colors, and the rounded seven-blade diaphragm opening ensures a natural look to out-of-focus elements. This G-type Nikkor lens is designed with no aperture rings, and offers easier, virtually mistake-free operation because the aperture does not need to be set to minimum.

Frame-Filling 180-Degree Viewing Angle

The AF DX Fisheye-NIKKOR 10.5mm f/2.8G ED achieves an ultra-wide picture angle of 180-degree on DX-format cameras while remaining compact and lightweight. Its unique fisheye bending effect with edge-to-edge sharpness opens up entirely new compositional possibilities. Try different viewpoints and angles to turn ordinary scenes into extraordinary photographs. And with a minimal focus distance of just 1.2 inches (3-cm), you can get an entirely new perspective on just about any subject.

Creativity and Performance

With a rounded diaphragm that makes out-of-focus elements appear more natural, a built-in flower-type lens hood and a 16mm equivalent focal length, the AF DX Fisheye-NIKKOR 10.5mm f/2.8G ED is optimized for DX-format Nikon D-SLR cameras. Its Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass ensures superior sharpness and color, and Close-Range Correction (CRC) system provides high performance when taking pictures up close.

Extra-Low Dispersion Glass

An optical glass developed by Nikon that is used with normal optical glass in telephoto lenses to obtain optimum correction of chromatic aberrations.

Close Range Correction System

The Close-Range Correction (CRC) system is one of Nikon's most important focusing innovations, for it provides superior picture quality at close focusing distances and increases the focusing range. With CRC, the lens elements are configured in a "floating element" design wherein each lens group moves independently to achieve focusing. This ensures superior lens performance even when shooting at close distances. The CRC system is used in fisheye, wide-angle, micro and selected medium telephoto NIKKOR lenses.
