  • AF-S Fisheye NIKKOR 8-15mm f/3.5-4.5E ED
  • AF-S Fisheye NIKKOR 8-15mm f/3.5-4.5E ED: angle1


  • In FX format, the angle of view is 180° vertical and horizontal (circular fisheye) when zoomed out to 8 mm, and 180° diagonal (full-frame fisheye) when zoomed in close to 15 mm*.
    • *At exactly 15 mm, the angle of view is slightly smaller, at 175°.
  • In DX format, 180° diagonal full-frame fisheye images can be obtained around the DX mark on the focal length scale*.
    • *Angle of view of full-frame images gradually decreases as the lens is zoomed in.
  • The latest optical design technology delivers high resolution even at the maximum aperture and superb reproduction capability of point light sources all the way to the periphery.
  • Three ED glass elements reduce lateral chromatic aberration for sharp and high-contrast images.
  • Nano Crystal Coat effectively controls ghost and flare effects that are likely to occur with a wide angle of view up to 180°, creating crisp, clear images.
  • With a minimum focus distance of 0.16 m and maximum reproduction ratio of 0.34x, you can get nearer to subjects.
  • Dust- and drip-resistant structure is employed for enhanced reliability.
  • Fluorine coat applied to lens surfaces ensures easy maintenance.
