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! ;p

Spot on bro! Thanks! :thumbsup:
Hopefully after the PMA, I'll be out there hunting for a 16mm (Would still be a Nikon ;p )! *HINT*HINT*! ;)

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

also - fisheye for landscape?!?!
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. :)
