Quick Review of the Nikon 16 mm F/2.8 Fisheye Lens at PhotoFocus — Scott Bourne really likes the lens for the sharpness, high optical performance and overall creative possibilities it offers in a small and lightweight package.

He finds it suitable for use on the FX (full-frame) Nikon DSLR cameras such as the Nikon D3 and Nikon D700, and concludes:

For the money, this lens is a very good value, particularly because of its performance, it’s low weight and its reasonable price to performance ratio. If you’re a full-frame Nikon shooter, this is the fisheye you want.
