    so here's a dumb question for those who might know...

    since the 10.5 is a DX lens, does that mean the field of view is basically a 10.5 on a FF camera? Because if I get this and thats the case, I'll leave this thing on the D300 or D80 when I have the D700 next year. :o

    Nah, it's 10.5*1.5 on a FF.

    I don't think so.

    Rockwell goes into the different fisheyes and sensors on his review of the 10.5 here:
    http://www.kenrockwell.com/nikon/105fe.htm

    From the sounds of it, your better off getting a 16m fish to use on an FF camera.


    Anyone know where i can get Fisheye-Hemi :big grin: for < $0

    since the lens is a DX lens if you try to use it on a FF camera you're going to get black corners. it will still meter and focus, you're just gonna have some weird ass looking images.

    I don't own any DX lenses and haven't since I first bought my D80 w/ the 18-135 kit lens. Now that I know more about them, I know that the DX is setup for the cropped sensors. But I guess I was just curious what makes a DX a DX... and the only resonable explanation is that in DX format, it tries to emulate what the lens is on a FF. Otherwise, its just a waste to me. :dunno:

    If that makes cents. :hsd:

    It doesn't perfectly emulate a lens on a FF, it just has small imaging circle. 50mm prime which has a focal length of 50mm on a FX cam, would translate to 75mm equivalent for a DX cam due to the crop factor of 1.5.

    If Nikon came out with 50mm DX prime, it'll still have focal length equivalent of 75mm on a DX cam.

    Smaller imaging circle = smaller elements (except for the back element), lighter weight, cheaper filters and cheaper lens itself.

    we'll make it simple.

    FF camera sensor size = about 36mm horizontal
    DX camera sensor size = about 24mm horizontal

    that means that lenses made for FF and film cameras had to have a circle of good definition (chromatic aberrations, quality of the image, focus) much much larger than lenses that are made for DX cameras. so since they can make DX lenses with smaller circles of good definition, they can make them lighter, smaller, less glass, more plastic...bottom line: cheaper.

    on a similar note, the size of a 4x5 piece of film in millimeters on the long side is 120mm. can you imagine how much bigger the circle of definition is with 4x5 lenses?

    edit: well i guess i was a bit too late

    i already know all that... Guess me as a person just don't see the point of having a DX lens. :dunno:

    if someone wants to stick to cropped sensors, by all means, go for it.
