Overview

Zoom in on mind-bending new possibilities.

Meet the first NIKKOR fisheye lens with zoom capability, and the first NIKKOR zoom to capture epic 180° circular images.

The AF-S FISHEYE NIKKOR 8-15mm f/3.5-4.5E ED lens brings a new level of versatility and sharpness to extreme wide-angle lenses, freeing you to choose the right fisheye perspective for the shot; to create frame-filling images from as close as 0.5 inches from your subject or to follow your passion into challenging, heavily backlit, even wet and dirty situations. For those seeking a new source of inspiration and expression, this lens delivers.

Key Features:

  • Widest NIKKOR fisheye lens yet and the first with zoom capability
  • Capture epic 180° circular images and traditional frame-filling fisheye images
  • Close focusing up to 0.5 inches from your subject for macro-style fisheye images
  • Weather-sealed design and Nikon's protective Fluorine Coat for use in harsh conditions
  • Equally suited for still photography and video work

One lens. Two great effects.

NIKKOR's first fisheye zoom lens

If you’re the kind of photographer or videographer who likes to think outside the box, the AF-S FISHEYE NIKKOR 8-15mm f/3.5-4.5E ED lens opens a new world of possibilities. Not only can you shoot traditional full-frame fisheye images, you can also zoom out to create fascinating 180° circular images. And you can get extremely close to your subject—as close as 0.5 inches with a 0.34x reproduction ratio—for close-up fisheye shots. Create images unlike any you've seen.

Edge to edge sharpness

Optimized for Nikon's latest DSLRs

The AF-S FISHEYE NIKKOR 8-15mm f/3.5-4.5E ED lens builds on NIKKOR's legacy of superb wide-angle optics and produces flawless detail across the entire frame at any aperture. Three ED glass elements and two Aspherical (AS) lens elements combat chromatic aberration and color fringing for stunning sharpness and contrast. Nano Crystal Coat (N) cuts through ghosting and flare, key because your 180° shots often will include bright light sources like the sun. Expect consistent, brilliant photos and videos.

Ready for your creativity

Durable design and agile performance

The AF-S FISHEYE NIKKOR 8-15mm f/3.5-4.5E ED lens is a workhorse. The front and rear elements have Nikon’s protective Fluorine coat, which lets grime and liquid roll right off the lens. The lens barrel is dust and moisture resistant for shooting in challenging conditions. You can even remove the lens hood and lens cap together to shoot 180° circular images, or leave the hood on to shoot a frame-filling traditional fisheye image. Simple, robust and intuitive design means you get the shot without the worry.

  • A-M

    A-M stands for Auto-Manual Mode. Thanks to a mechanism incorporated in the lens barrel, smooth focusing operation in Manual focus mode is realized in the same way as users have become accustomed to with conventional manual-focus lenses by adding an appropriate torque to the focus ring.
  • Aspherical Lens

    A lens with a curved, non-spherical surface. Used to reduce aberrations and enable a more compact lens size. Aspherical lenses minimize coma and other types of lens aberrations, even when used at the widest aperture. They are particularly useful in correcting distortion in wide-angle lenses and help contribute to a lighter, more compact design by reducing the number of standard (spherical) elements necessary. Aspherical lens elements correct these distortions by continuously changing the refractive index from the center of the lens.
  • Electromagnetic Diaphragm Mechanism

    An electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism in the lens barrel provides highly accurate electronic diaphragm or aperture blade control when using auto exposure during continuous shooting. With conventional D/G type lenses, the diaphragm blades are operated by mechanical linkage levers.
  • ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) Glass

    An optical glass developed by Nikon that is used with normal optical glass in telephoto lenses to obtain optimum correction of chromatic aberrations.
  • IF Lens

    A NIKKOR lens in which only the internal lens group shifts during focusing. Thus, IF NIKKORS do not change in size during AF operation, allowing for compact, lightweight lenses capable of closer focusing distances. These lenses will be designated with the abbreviation IF on the lens barrel.
  • M/A

    Select NIKKOR lenses have a focusing mode which allows switching from automatic to manual focusing with virtually no lag time by simply turning the focusing ring on the lens. This makes it possible to seamlessly switch to fine manual focusing while looking through the viewfinder.
  • Nano Crystal Coat

    An anti-reflective coating developed by Nikon that virtually eliminates internal lens element reflections across a wide range of wavelengths. Nano Crystal Coat uses ultrafine, nano-sized* crystal particles to eliminate reflections inside the lens throughout the spectrum of visible light waves (380 to 780 nm) in ways that far exceed the limits of conventional antireflection coating systems. Nano Crystal Coat not only solves ghost effects caused by red light, which was incredibly difficult for previous systems. It also effectively reduces ghost and flare effects caused by light entering the lens diagonally. The result: clearer images.
  • Super Integrated Coating

    Nikon Super Integrated Coating is Nikon's term for its multilayer coating of the optical elements in NIKKOR lenses.
  • Silent Wave Motor

    AF-S NIKKOR lenses feature Nikon’s Silent Wave Motor (SWM). This technology converts “traveling waves” into rotational energy to focus the optics. This enables high-speed autofocusing that's extremely accurate and super quiet.
