    Nikon AF Fisheye-Nikkor 16mm f/2.8D Review by momentcorp.com

    Positives

    • Contrast is really impressive at f/2.8, pretty much as good as it gets.
    • Sharpness. Wide open center sharpness is outstanding, corners are not though, not un till you hit f/8, you probably want to stop down to f/11 if you want absolute corner performance on it.
    • Build quality.
    • DOF/IR markings. Lens comes with both Depth Of Field markings and a Infrared compensation mark.
    • IR performance. No hot-spot is detectable at any aperture, and pictures are sharp from f/2.8 and all the way out!
    • Size. Small and compact.
    • Ghosting/Flare, this lens handles this extremely well as long as the front element is kept extremely clean.

    Drawbacks

    • CA, used in the worst of lighting conditions the lens can show some CA from f/2.8 to f/11. In most scenarios this will not show at all, not even on f/2.8
    • Plastic Slip-on lens cap. I prefer the old one they had on the manual focus 16mm f/2.8 version. The plastic one doesn’t really sit that well at all.
    • Vignetting/Light fall-off. On the D3 this lens shows a bit of vignetting wide open, and to f/5.6. It never bothered me to the extent that I don’t use it at f/2.8, both on film as well as on Digital. Vignetting in lenses comes down to taste, so I did not down rate the lens for vignetting.
