Fish­eye lenses are com­mon enough, but this is Nikon’s first ever fish­eye zoom. Its unique fea­ture is its abil­ity to swap from a cir­cu­lar fish­eye at 8mm (which pro­duces a cir­cu­lar im­age with black cor­ners) to a full-frame fish­eye at 15mm. As Nikon says, it’s like hav­ing two fish­eye ef­fects in one lens.

De­signed to fit Nikon’s full-frame FX cam­eras, the lens has an as­ton­ish­ingly close min­i­mum fo­cus dis­tance of just 0.16m and is also dust and drip-re­sis­tant .

Fish­eye lenses can pro­duce strik­ing in­te­rior, land­scape and sports shots, and this cir­cu­lar/full-frame fish­eye com­bi­na­tion is very clever de­sign that re­ally is like hav­ing two lenses for the price of one.
