A very funny lens in FX.
With D3 distortion effects are spectacular.

This is me, very close to the front lens (13 cm) :


and is is the center of Vittorio Emanuele Gallery in Milan, fron below :


Milan Duomo's Metro-stop :


I have bought the last year, with my first D3.
I recommend it for unusual point of view.

Is really funny, compact, light and not so expensive.
The only choice for a modern autofocus circular fisheye.

Here's a shot I took with this lens at a friends wedding and then de-fished the result in Photoshop.
