Nikon 10-5mm f/2-8G ED DX Fisheye Lens

After the Snow

The weather here in the Mid-Atlantic Region continues to mimic a roller coaster with temperatures at night dropping to below 20 degrees F, then shooting up to near 60 degrees during the day. Well yesterday it was a typical Winter day, cold and a dusting of snow. The image below is not from yesterday but from a sunrise in late October when we had a rare Halloween snow event. I took this shot a day or so afterward when much of the then 6 to 8 inches had melted away. There was still enough around to provide a little scenery and have some fisheye fun.

As the Sun worked it's way over the horizon and through the overcast sky, fog danced between the buildings in the distance. Made for quite a sight that morning.

In the Doorway

In the doorway of a railroad restoration shop, I shot the image below with a rented Nikon 10.5mm f/2.8 AF DX Fisheye. I've been planning to purchase a fisheye for several months so I thought I would test drive a lens or 2 before plunking down the cash. I really like the performance of this one so far. It's lightning fast, tack sharp and has a 180 degree angle of view, just what we want in a new piece of glass. ;-) Lens Rentals, with their excellent service and stock of lenses, hooked me up in no time flat. I highly recommend them if you ever have the need.

Any feedback or suggestions regarding fisheyes for a DX model rig are more than welcome.
