Shaved (lens hood removed) Tokina 10-17mm, Nikon 10.5mm and Sigma 10mm fisheye lens on full frame sensor have >180 deg vertical angle of view, making them invaluable for rapid spherical panoramas making. A spherical pano can be generated by stitching 3-4 photos without the need of a zenith shot.
These lenses have longer focal length than 8mm circular fisheye lenses and thus generate panos with higher resolution. In other words, they combine the benefits of speed and high resolution in output panos.
Fanotec is glad to provide shaved lens for Nodal Ninja users. All lens are properly protected from dust and potential damage during shaving by using custom made tools and protection setup.
The first lens is Tokina 10-17mm. It is shaved from used lens in excellent to mint condition.
