    Default Difference between a DX and non-DX fisheye

    hi. new to photography but whats the exact difference between AF DX Fisheye 10.5mm f/2.8G ED and AF Fisheye 16mm f/2.8D ? other than the smaller focal length. both offer 180degree coverage as well, aint it so?

    The 10.5 gives about 180 angle of view on Dx sensor.
    The 16mm for the FX sensor

    because of the smaller sensor size on non FF like d80, the 16mm fisheye wont give as much "distortion" as compared to the 10.5 .

    And this is an example of the 16mm AFD on a cropped sensor ( my D80 ), a FE that looks cropped. If you are using a cropped sensor you r better getting the 10.5.
