    if i were on a budget and would like to have both FE and WA effect then the Tokina will be for me. but then again i am biase as i am planning on getting the tokina too haha.

    however if budget is not a problem then always i insist on nikkor. always!
    ps: sad thing though, the Tokina cannot work on film camera =(

    I would get the AF DX Fisheye 10.5mm f/2.8G ED, which also wouldn't work on a film camera without vignetting.

    Sorry wouldn't work with film camera without vignetting why you prefer Nikon? It does not have zoom right but it a f2.8?

    1- FE doesn't need to zoom.
    2- for FF, there's always the FE 16mm/2.8

    Bec of it's optics. It may be me, but I like the color rendition of the 10.5mm, small and compact too!

    I was deciding between these 2 lens, but ultimately gave in to nikkor FE. Primary reason is I need a large aperture lens for night land scape/photography since i dont own a 2.8 at the moment, except for the economic 50mm 1.8

    I find there's nothing wrong or unusual with using a FE for landscapes.
    Maybe it's my style or maybe I would like a different perspective, I may very well use a FE.
