6mm/2.8 on eBay!

Discussion in 'Lens Lust' started by Phil K, Apr 10, 2007.

  1. Now we need Nikon to release a 4mm f/2.8 DX so we can get that kind of coverage on digital!
     
  2. Hooooollyyyy.... lens !!! :910:
     
  3. For that price, I would not miss this lens for sure. :tongue:
    I could buy 23 of D200s or the Beast.
    Or probably buy ALL the fixed and zoom lenses starting from the 10.5mm.
    Or buy a car.:biggrin:

    too bad it won't work on a DSLR, i'd love to see some images from that lens.

    are the bolt holes in the rear of the front element for tripod mounting?

    Wonder what the pictures look like?
     
  9. Photo Arsenal always has rare items but for A LOT of money.
     
  10. It works on an F5, I don't see why it wouldn't work on a D2x. Of course, you'd "only" get something like a 175 degree view, but I think that it'd still be pretty shocking. :eek:

    And I can't imagine why it wouldn't work at 220 degrees on a Kodak SLR/n...

    hi brian-

    the fisheyes need mechanical MLU (presumably the rear element intrudes in the mirror box), which the DSLR's don't have. i think (but can't confirm as i don't have a manual on hand) that the fisheyes are on the list of "do not mount" lenses in the manual.

    ricky

     
  12. The older fisheyes require MLU, but not the later models. According to my D2h manual, the 6/f5.6 and 8/f8 are off-limits, but that allows the 6/f2.8 and 8/f2.8. I'm 100% certain that the 8/f2.8 works on the F5 - I've used it.

    Brian is 100% correct. The 8mm 2.8 and 6mm 2.8 lenses work beautifully on the DSLR's. The only problem is the crop factor which makes a circular image non circular.

    Here is a cropped shot I took with the 8mm 2.8 on my D2XS a while back.

  14. That's a cool image! How'd you get your feet out of there?

    I just tilted the camera up a little bit more. If my feet were still in the way... I just cropped them out. :smile:
     
  16. I wonder what size UV filter that thing takes? :rolleyes:
