Questions & Answers for Nikon Inc. AF Fisheye-Nikkor 16mm f/2.8D

Question

How can I use rear ND filters on this lens?

Am I able to cut ND filters from gelatin sheets (such as Kodak Wratten) into circular pieces and place these inside the supplied rear bayonet filters supplied with this lens? I have noticed there is a small screw on the filter, is this there for this purpose?
Would there be any problems with ghosting/flare/internal reflections using this method?

KiethD, the lens is meant to have an unusual bayonet filter attached to the back, as standard. Without a basic UV one it can't focus proper to infinity. Strange but true.

A fisheye lens features an ultra-wide angle of view that bends and distorts the subject matter as it reaches the edges of the frame. Check out the attached sample image from the AF-Fisheye Nikkor 16mm f/2.8 lens or visit the following page on Nikonusa.com for more sample images.
http://www.nikonusa.com/en/Nikon-Pr...

The AF-S 14-24mm f/2.8G ED is a high-performance, ultra-wide angle lens without the fisheye distortion. Product information and sample images for this lens can be found here:

Anything you place in front of this lens will result in very distracting vignetting.
Actually, it will be severe vignetting. You would likely get the same usable image with a 24mm or 28mm lens, but across more area of the sensor.

It may be possible but it is definitely not recommended on a 180 degree view fisheye.
This lens is designed to use bayonette, rear-attached filters.
These rear-attached filters are required for use and come in a set of 4.
If you do not have one installed you WILL have issues with edge sharpness and focusing.
As far as I know the only source of these filters is Nikon.

Good luck!!!

No, this lens does not accept screw in filters. This lens will accept gel filters which are held in a clip at the rear. The lens must be removed from the camera to change these filters.

If you want your landscapes to have a fish eye look then yes it would be ok, I doubt they will look 'fake' more like look a bit odd as fish eyes are not generally used for landscapes.

"D" lenses (which all current Nikkors are) transmit focused distance information to the exposure system for more accurate exposure. "ED" lenses contain Extra-Low Dispersion glass for better color and contrast.

You will not be able to auto focus with the 16mm F2.8D AF, as the D5100 does not have an internal focus motor and the lens doesn't have a motor. Really you need AF-S (current) or AF-I lenses (older but with a motor), not AF lenses (available but unable to autofocus with D40/D40x/D60/D3000/D5000/D3100/D5100). You can get lenses from third party manufacturers such as Sigma and Tamron which also have motors in their lenses but you need to check the individual lens. Here is more from the Nikon website: http://support.nikonusa.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/16436/~/what-lenses-can-i-use-on-the-nikon-d5100,-d5000,-d3100,-d3000,-d60,-d40x,-and and here is a list of lenses that I have found which are a good guide as to what will work with your camera: http://sincerityboy.blogspot.co.uk/2010/02/nikon-d5000-compatible-lenses.html

Yes, AF Fisheye-NIKKOR 16mm f/2.8D works with D50. However you will not be able to manually change the aperture using the aperture ring on the lens. You will need to lock the lens on the minimum aperture, and use the exposure compensating button and the camera command dial to change the aperture.
