Nikkor 10.5 - Any opinions

Discussion in 'Lens Lust' started by jpope42, Jul 6, 2008.

  1. I'm thinking about getting this lens. I have a Nikkor 12-24 and really like it. One of the things I like is the barrel distortion ad 12mm. I'm thinking the fisheye lens will be a pretty cool creative tool, so... anyone have an opinion about this lens?

    It's not something I use every day, but it's a fun lens and it definitely gives you some different options when you need to get close and capture a wide space. It also gives you some interesting landscapes. Here's a couple of examples. Go search for the Fisheye thread to see plenty of great examples of what you can do with this lens.

    Jim, you'll find lots of opinions on this lens in these forums. I love mine - one of the most creative lenses out there, IMO. Here are a couple of threads to help in your decision:

    Absolutely love this lens. Unfortunately, mine doesn't get much use now I have the D3 (although I still have 2 DX bodies).

    Out of curiousity, is there a FX equivalent for this?

    Yes, the 16mm F/2.8.

    But, on topic with the 10.5, GET IT! GET IT! GET IT!

    Okay, that's enough. :smile:
     
  11. I took this photo wide open, f2.8 - then like a dummy I sold the lens! Want another, immediately-if not sooner.

  12. Geez, I'm convinced! There are some great shots here. Thanks for all your responses, they're a big help.
