The AF-S Fisheye NIKKOR 8-15mm f/3.5-4.5E ED supports the 8-15 mm range of focal lengths and maximum apertures of f/3.5-4.5. With FX-format cameras, circular fisheye images with an angle of view of 180° vertical and horizontal are achieved when the lens is zoomed all the way out (wide-angle position). Zooming close to all the way in enables full-frame fisheye images with a diagonal angle of view of 180°. Moreover, full-frame fisheye images with diagonal angles of view up to 180° can be achieved in the range that begins at the DX mark on the lens and ends at the maximum telephoto position when shooting in DX format.

Dare to be Different

See faces and places with a dramatic view; 180° in circular and full-frame effects4. The AF-S Fisheye NIKKOR 8-15mm f/3.5-4.5E ED, the first NIKKOR fisheye zoom lensZOOM LENSAllows a camera to, unlike a fixed-focal length or prime lens, change smoothly from a long shot to a close-up or vice versa by varying the focal length. A true zoom lens, also called a parfocal lens, is one that maintains focus when its focal length changes. Due to more moving parts, zoom lenses often produce images of slightly lesser quality than their prime lens counterparts. However due to the inherent flexibility of being able to vary the focal length, they are extremely popular for photography where composition needs to be adapted quickly - such as at weddings, for example., is a high-performing and versatile lens for creative and elaborate imagery. Edge-to-edge clarity is promised even at a minimum focus distance of 0.16m, which means that photographers can approach their subjects up-close without compromising on quality and detail at the periphery.

The lens adopts two aspherical lens elements to effectively reduce sagittal coma flareFLAREOccurs when a point light source such as the sun or an artificial light (that is brighter than the rest of the scene), hits the front element of a lens resulting in a lack of contrast, haze, or unwanted semi-transparent objects being present in the image. You can avoid lens flare with a lenshood or filters, however, the effect is also useful for bringing artistic elements into an image, such as sun rays peaking out from behind a rock formation. , enhancing the accurate reproduction of point light sources located at the peripheries, even with the lens’ apertureAPERTUREAperture, shutter speed and ISO form what is known as the exposure triangle in photography. Aperture refers to an opening inside the lens, similar to the iris of your eye, that changes in diameter to control the amount of light that enters a camera. Aperture is expressed in f-stops: the lower the number, the larger the aperture, e.g. f/1.4 is larger than f/8. A larger (or wider) aperture allows more light to pass through the lens to the sensor (film) as a picture is taken, particularly useful in low-light conditions. A larger aperture also produces a shallower depth-of-field, and thus more background blur. set to the maximum.

Scenic and expressive landscapes are reproduced with sharp and clear rendering, thanks to the inclusion of Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass elements that minimise colour fringing caused by lateral chromatic aberration. This is paired with Nano Crystal Coat which effectively reduces flare and ghosting, reproducing splendid sunsets easily with the click of a shutter.

Attachment and removal of the lens hood and cap can be done together or separately, enabling quick responses to capture the fleeting moments. Realising the form of a highly agile and durable body, and protected with a fluorine coat for easy maintenance, this new NIKKOR fisheye zoom lens is perfect for the artist looking to challenge visual boundaries.

Nano Crystal Coat

The Nano Crystal Coat is an anti-reflective coating developed by Nikon that eliminates internal reflections across a wide range of wavelengths. the coat uses ultrafine, nano-sized crystal particles to eliminate reflections inside the lens throughout the spectrum of visible light waves in ways that far exceed the limits of conventional anti-reflection coating systems. Nano Crystal Coat not only solves ghost effects caused by red light, which was incredibly difficult for previous systems. It also effectively reduces ghost and flare effects caused by light entering the lens diagonally.


Fluorine coat

The front element of the Nikon AF-S 8-15mm f/3.5-4.5E ED Fisheye lens features a protective fluorine coat. This highly durable coat effectively repels dust, water, grease (oil), fingerprints, and dirt. Additionally, the coat has superior anti-reflection characteristics that greatly reduces the chances of ghosting and/or flaring.


Super Integrated Coating

Nikon's Super Integrated Coating reduces the appearance of flare and ghosting in your images.


FX format

The Nikon AF-S 8-15mm f/3.5-4.5E ED Fisheye is a full-frame (FX format) lens. Nikon's full frame lenses can be mounted on Nikon professional bodies (FX), or even cropped sensor (DX) bodies.


AF-S autofocus motor with internal focusing

Neither the lens barrel or the front element shifts or moves during focus. This allows the lens to be more compact and enables closer focusing.


Electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism

During high-speed continuous shooting the lens' electromagnetic diaphragm syncs with the camera shutter for remarkably consistent exposureEXPOSUREExposure is controlled by three elements: Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO. Achieving the correct exposure is similar to collecting rain in a bucket, up to an optimum level. The rate of rainfall is out of your control (light), yet you can control these three factors: the bucket’s width (lens aperture), the duration you leave it in the rain (shutter speed), and how effective your bucket is in collecting rain (ISO). These three elements work together to control the amount of light per unit area, preventing underexposure (too dark) or overexposure (too bright), giving you a natural looking image.. AF tracking is also improved, even for subjects with unpredictable or very fast movement.


Rounded 7-blade aperture diaphragm

A rounded 7-blade aperture diaphragm provides the Nikon AF-S 8-15mm f/3.5-4.5E ED Fisheye lens with pleasant bokehBOKEHPronounced: /ˈboʊkɛ/, /ˈboʊkeɪ/ [boh-kay] or /ˈboʊkə/ [boh-kə] Originating from the Japanese word Boke (ボケ), meaning 'blur' or 'haze', it refers to the aesthetic quality of the blur produced in the out-of-focus parts of an image produced by a lens. It has also been defined as the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light. Bokeh depends on various aspects of lens design. Aperture design has the largest effect on Bokeh, and generally a lens with a more rounded aperture produces a more pleasing, natural Bokeh. on out of focus areas
