Why doesn’t Nikon make lenses that are as wide as it used to?

Chris says… One rea­son is that man­u­fac­tur­ers have to make two ranges of wides: one for DX SLRs, and one for FX mod­els. Nikon once made a 6mm fish­eye, but its cur­rent widest DX mod­els are the 10-24mm or the 10.5mm fish­eye, and the widest FX lens is the 14mm, or 16mm fish­eye. Sigma stretches fur­ther, pro­duc­ing a 4.5mm cir­cu­lar DX fish­eye, and an 8mm FX lens.
