The Nikon AF Fisheye-NIKKOR 16mm f/2.8D is a fisheye lens capable of a fully 180 degree picture angle. This creates full-frame fisheye images. When used with Nikon digital cameras, the Nikon DX format reduces this angle to 107 degrees. Regardless, a fisheye effect is applied to the image. Nikon Super Integrated Coating is used to minimize flare and ghost that digital cameras are prone to, improving the color balance. Aperture ranges from f/2.8 to f/22, allowing for a wide range of lighting conditions and flexibility for moving subjects. Floating lens elements provide consistent performance throughout the focal range, and Close-Range Correction (CRC) enables subjects to be as close as 0.25 meters.
