This is NOT a fisheye lens.

It is a true wideangle - optical and mechanically. The next closest to this lens is the Canon's 14mm F2.8L, just fits between the next Nikkor offering, 15mm F3.5. The optical construction is quite complex as you can refer to the chart on the left.

Note: This lens is only available by special order.
