Nikkor 6mm Fisheye

That figures, I just bought the 10.5mm Nikon fisheye. I should have spent the extra $155,400 and bought this one :)

I've been waiting for the 5mm for years. This sucks.

I have two on order. I always get a backup.

Now that is a lens

Yeah, but then you have to go full frame to take advantage of the true angle of view, so that means buying another body, and I can't afford both right now. Besides, it wouldn't fit in my camera bag.

Nah, it comes with filters. They mount in the base of the lens. That front glass is a hemisphere, or at least a segment of one. Imagine the rep[air cost if you scratched THAT :-)

To see one of those in that kind of condition is incredible. What a find. I really wonder what the optical performance is like?

I wonder if someone will make an iPhone mount?

Sold for £100K

It looks like HAL9000 :)

Has anyone seen any pictures taken with this lens?
04/29/2012 12:23:23 PM · #14

Grays of Westminster have posted a video of this on their YouTube channel. It includes a piece of video shot with the lens.

Nikon used to include pictures made with this lens in their catalog, it was pretty far out and I wanted one, but my dad wouldn't increase my allowance enough to afford one.

Disappointed that he didn't put his face/nose right up to the lens.

So now there's a lens and a video, no photos. Has Nikon left photography? ( :) )
