  • Which fisheye?

    Hi
    Which fisheye would be best for mainly interiors on a Nikon D800 (full frame).
    The Sigma 8mm @620 or the Nikon 16mm @ 620.......mainly after image quality as the difference in shots isn't THAT great.
    Minimum (inc. N + Z) is 7 shots on the 16mm
    Minimum (inc. N) is 4 shots on the 8mm
    Thanks

    get a shaved Nikon 10.5mm or shave one yourself. Sigma 8mm is a waste of sensor pixels.
    Nikon 16mm will give you much higher quality. Perfect for scenes without many moving objects.

        Hey John,
        The 16mm Nikon lens is my preferred lens - very sharp! Requires 6 shots around on full frame. I find the 10.5mm lens when shaved is very prone to lens flare and also has more chromatic aberration (CA). It's also a little softer than the 10.5mm.

          Thanks for that Bill.......must admit I'm swaying more towards the 16mm.

            Nikkor 16mm f/2.8 vs Nikkor 10.5mm f/2.8 fisheye

            here are some recent examples of my own, 360 spherical panoramas shot with nikon D800 & nikkor 10.5mm & 16mm fisheyes, all of these were shot at f/8 or f/11, both lenses are capable of very good sharpness when used carefully

            D800 + Nikkor 10.5mm f/2.8 fisheye (lens hood removed for use on full frame camera) + Nodal Ninja R1/R10 (4 around @ 0)
