Overview: The AF Fisheye-Nikkor 16mm f/2.8D lens was developed for
use with Nikon full-frame FX-format digital SLR cameras. It has an ultra-wide picture angle of 180
degrees, The bright f/2.8 aperture lets you shoot in dim light, or with fast
shutter speeds. Close-Range Correction (CRC) provides high performance for
sharper images at both near- and far-focusing distances.
Built-in CPU: The lens has a built-in CPU which allows it to
communicate with the camera body for focus and exposure functions. A set of CPU
contacts is located on the lens mount for interfacing with the camera body.
Full Frame: Unlike other Nikkor fisheye lenses producing a
circular image, the AF Fisheye-Nikkor 16mm f/2.8D lens fills up the frame with
an image. The image still possesses a 180° angle of view (measured across the
diagonal), and gives you the same fisheye effects as regular fisheye lenses.
Filters: The lens includes four rear-mounting bayonet-type
filters. Because of the optical construction of the lens, a filter must be
attached to the lens at all times. The following filters are included:
- L37C: Ultraviolet (can also be used with B/W and color
- A2: Light amber (can also be used with color film)
- B2: Light blue (can also be used with color film)
- O56: Orange (can also be used with B/W film)
Minimum Aperture Lock: When shooting in programmed auto or
shutter-priority mode, you should use the minimum aperture lock lever to lock
the lens aperture at f/22.
