Nikon 10.5mm f/2.8G ED DX Fisheye AF

10
Review Date: Mar 1, 2009 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $500.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Panoramas!, small size, sharp, extremely close focusing
Cons:
Other than a little chromatic aberration nothing to mention

A really sharp full frame fisheye. What else is there to say? I like the Image Trends plugin if I want to subdue the effect or if I'm photographing people. Its also the only lens I use for 360 panoramas. Shooting vertically you need just six shots around plus one up and one down and you're done. It has such incredible depth of field that you can get everything in sharp focus from around f5.6 on. I've read that you can even use it on a full frame camera if you wish and if you don't mind cutting off the lens hood.
