The Nikon 8-15mm f/3.5-4.5E ED AF-S Fisheye is a wide-angle fisheye zoom for FX-format F-mount DSLRs. Key features include:
Wide-angle fisheye zoom
Fast, nearly silent autofocus and full-time manual focus
Electromagnetic aperture for stable exposure control
High-quality optical formula
Wide-Angle Fisheye Zoom. The Nikon 8-15mm f/3.5-4.5E ED AF-S gives you a circular 180° vertical/horizontal angle of view on full-frame cameras. On the long end of the focal range, it zooms to a rectilinear, non-circular fisheye view. You can also use this lens with DX cameras, on which it’ll give you a 12-22.5 equivalent focal-length range.
Silent Wave Autofocus Motor. The 8-15mm’s Silent Wave Motor provides fast, quiet, and precise autofocus performance that’s perfect for capturing fast-moving subjects. The internal focusing design retains the overall lens length during operation while contributing to a lighter overall weight. Full-time manual focus override is as simple as rotating the focus ring at any time.
Electromagnetic Aperture. This lens’s specialized electromagnetic aperture provides stable exposure control, which is especially beneficial when working with fast continuous shooting rates.
High-Quality Optics. Nikon’s first fisheye lens boasts an outstanding optical formula. Its three extra-low dispersion elements and two aspherical elements combine to minimize chromatic aberrations and coma while contributing to a compact lens design, while its Nano Crystal coating combats ghosting and flare. A fluorine coating on the front lens element helps keep dirt and smudges at bay.
